And of course, a few handy tips!

  • Examine the car for damage – you should check that the car doesn’t have body paint issues or scratches. If you happen to notice anything, we recommend you take pictures of it so that you can’t be charged extra.
  • Ensure you have a Sat-Nav with you – It’s a good idea to have a sat-nav packed with you as this means that you won’t get lost in an unfamiliar place. It is especially good to carry it with you as you’ll get to save money on mobile data.
