If you are going to be using a rental car to get around your vacation destination – check out these tips to keep you safe.
- Get a good night’s sleep before driving - drowsy driving can be just as dangerous as driving while drunk – with the same tragic consequences.
- Get to know your rental car – before leaving the lot have the rental car company employee show you how to turn on the headlights, how to adjust the mirrors etc.
- Stay organized – keep heavy items low in the seat wells and put away any unnecessary loose objects in the car such as games and toys – these things can become dangerous projectiles in the event of a sudden stop
Keeping these helpful hints in mind can help you avoid a rental car accident and having to navigate a complicated insurance coverage policy.
