If you are on a holiday or trip, then hiring a car can be a great way of saving money. With a car, you are flexible to go anywhere anytime without being restricted by the heavy taxi fares or bus routes.
Now, it is time to return the car and you are probably wondering what you should do before handing it back. Below are tips for you in such a scenario:
Refuel The Car
This is one thing most people ask themselves. You are thinking, “why should I refuel it when am not going to use it again?” You should know that most companies that offer hire cars charge you if you return the car empty-tank. And probably, they will charge you more than you could have been charged at the gas station. Therefore, before getting the car back, fill it up to avoid additional bills.
But depending on the deal you’ve made with the rent a car in Cebu company, it might not be a requirement.
Check Condition Of Car
Before you hired the car, you must have checked its condition well. You should therefore make sure it is in the same condition as you took it if not better. If after hiring the car, you note a defect, quickly inform the company involved to avoid misunderstandings during the day of return. It will save you a lot of money that you would have otherwise incurred in repairing the car.
Clean Well and Have Everything Back In Place
This will involve clearing all the dirt and returning everything where it is supposed to be. Just neaten things up. This you can either do yourself with few tools, or you can get the car to a cleaning facility for thorough cleaning.
Check on the above items before returning your car. If you don’t observe them, you might end up paying money you did not expect to. Now you know.
