Why Certain Car Rental Add-Ons are Actually Beneficial

Why Certain Car Rental Add-Ons are Actually Beneficial

It is easy to brandish all rental car add-ons as unnecessary. However, many of the add-ons can prove exceptionally handy and make the trip in your hire carthat much more enjoyable. Let’s explore a few of those now.

Additional Driver Charge

While it often seems like an easy add-on to avoid, there are many advantages to spreading the driving load. This obviously depends on the length and purpose of your journey. If you have ever been on a road-trip, you will know that being the only driver can become quite tiresome - especially if you’re doing a longer trip.

Pacific Rentals doesn’t charge you this fee allowing up to 3 drivers on the same contract and an easier trip for all parties.No more discontent about not being able to have a couple of drinks. No more guilt about not being able to share the workload. And most importantly - no more monopoly on the music choices. 

Baby Seats

You usually travel light when on a holiday or a trip, especially if you’re an overseas traveller visiting multiple destinations in New Zealand. The last thing you want to drag around with you is one or more baby seats depending on the number of children in the family. The New Zealand law states that all children under the age of 7 must be in seat restraints that are safe and comfortable. Car rental companieswill be more than happy to provide you with a baby seat that is compliant with NZ road safety laws at an affordable price when requested. Make sure that you account for this cost when booking any hire car if you’re on a budget.

Insurance

Most travellers won’t have auto insurance or they will simply have it included with their credit card. Because of this, it is wise to also to pay for the extra insurance. It may seem like an annoying fee to pay up front, especially if you are a careful driver. However, if something does happen, the insurance can sting you for a whole lot more. In fact, the prices are often more than enough to end a trip or consume your savings for the next one.

GPS Navigation

Everybody has maps on their smartphone, so why would you pay for the add-on of a GPS navigation system?

The problem with smartphones is that they can run out of both battery and data very fast. Not having the added distraction of your phone will also make the journey a lot safer when you suddenly decide to change locations. The ease of getting around tension-free is worth a lot more than the small add-on fee.
