When you’re planning to use a car abroad, unless you’re close enough to your destination to take your own car, hiring a car is often the only option. Having your own way of getting around abroad rather than relying on local public transport can really open up your options to truly explore the area you’re staying in. In addition to this, it is usually much more convenient as you can travel as and when you choose, rather than being beholden to bus or train timetables.
And whilst there are many benefits to having a hire car on your trip, there is always the danger you could run into a number of unexpected issues that could end up costing you financially. This could be down to local laws, rules and regulations that you may be unfamiliar with, as well as the wide variety of potential scams or additional unnecessary fees and charges you can be faced with from unscrupulous hiring companies. So to help you tackle these potential issues I’ve shared this simple infographic created by motoringoffencelawyers.com which gives some really useful advice to help you avoid any difficulties.
