When on a vacation the last thing we want to think about is the “What-Not-To-Dos”. Nonetheless, when traveling to a place for the first time, it’s best to travel informed and prepared. Don’t they say knowledge is power?
For a vacation full of fun and peace of mind, keep the following tips in mind when renting a car in Jamaica.
Do not rent a vehicle you are uncomfortable maneuvering
When you rent a vehicle from a car rental in Jamaica it is yours for a while; it is always best to feel comfortable driving the vehicle as to prevent any accidents or damages to yourself or the vehicle.
Do not allow multiple drivers to drive the rental vehicle
Even if you’re going on vacation with a ton of friends; the vehicle is your responsibility. Do not allow multiple persons to drive the vehicle and have them possibly damage the vehicle or themselves. You got a great price from the cheap car rental in Jamaica doesn’t hike up payments by having to pay for damages!
Do not go off-road
– A pretty standard “don’t” but let me explain. You’re driving around Jamaica and you visit a beautiful beach that does not have a road paved leading to it; that is deemed as off-road. To avoid this, find the nearest parking to the beach. You might wind up getting stuck in a place you should not have been driving. Furthermore, if the vehicle incurs any damages, then the fees will fall on you.
Do not leave inspection to chance
When dropping off your rental vehicle be sure to have an agent present to check for any damages.
Do not extend rental without permission
In a signed contract, an agreement is made between you and the Jamaican car rental agency. Avoid breaking it by extending the length of your rental without permission. Inform the agency and a cheap price will be given to you for extension of rental.
