When hiring a vehicle, many people assume they get everything they need under the one cost. However, there are numerous extras you can benefit from that will make your trip easier and save you money in the long run. Below are just four important extras every renter should consider.

Excess waivers

Excess is a minimum amount you will have to pay in the case of an accident. An excess waiver is an optional extra form of reducing your excess, providing you with cover for part or all of the excess. This offers peace of mind that you are covered if anything were to happen while driving your rented vehicle.

GPS device
Many people hire cars when they are in a foreign place. Whether it is for business or pleasure, it is important you know where you’re going and don’t waste time getting lost. While maps are cheap and easy, adding a GPS to your car hire can save you a lot of time and money and only costs a little extra.

Trolleys for trucks or utes
If you need a truck hire or ute hire to move items, a moving trolley is essential. Rather than spending a lot of money on something you will only use once, hire a few trolleys with your ute or truck hire and get the job done faster.

Additional drivers
Most car hire fees cover for only one driver. If someone else drives and they are not on the contract they are liable for the entire cost of the repair. For a small additional fee, you can add one or more people to the contract as additional drivers.
