What to Look for in a Car Rental Company

Often we come across a situation where renting a car becomes inevitable. Whether you are planning a vacation or need to give your car to the repair shop for a few days, a temporary set of wheels becomes an absolute requirement. However, different individuals have different needs and should be catered to accordingly. This is where car rental companies come in.

However, renting a car for travel purposes can be a hassle unless you do it with the right rental company. To the novice, the rental process may seem quite straightforward. You rent a car from the rental company, make the payment, and travel from one location to the other. However, that is not the case in reality, but with the right rental services, your experience can be smooth and hassle-free.

Continue reading through the article to learn our expert tips on how you can get the most out of your next car rental and how we at Ascent Car Rental can facilitate you every step of the way with guaranteed quality services and utmost satisfaction. 

Determine your car rental requirements

The first step of the process begins at the customer end, as only you can accurately assess your car rental needs. Before you make a final decision, consider what your travel requirements are. Here are two examples to consider.

Size requirements

If you require more storage space to store a lot of luggage or are traveling with a group, you may need a larger vehicle. 

However, when renting a large vehicle, consider where you will drive the car. For instance, if you will be driving in an area with narrow roads, or limited parking options, a bigger car may become a challenge. The added fuel costs associated with a large vehicle are also an important consideration.

However, you can opt for a larger vehicle like a full-sized SUV if you need more space.

Comfort requirements

Similarly, if you are traveling for a long distance, you may need a comfortable and luxurious car, depending on your budget. Cost considerations often tend to take a backseat when you need comfort and security over anything else.

Moreover, if you have a short distance to travel and expect the weather to be pleasant, you may desire something adventurous like a convertible. 

What Ascent Car Rental can offer you

These are just a few examples. The more specified your travel requirements are, the more confident you will be while choosing a car. Car rental companies usually feature a wide range of vehicular options to cater to widely varying customer needs. 

For instance, Ascent Car Rental features a wide range of vehicles in its fleet. The fleet features varied-sized cars from the compact-sized KIA RAO to the medium-sized KIA FORTE and the full-sized SUBARU ASCENT. You will also find high-performance vehicles like the NISSAN INFINITI QX50, designed for a pleasurable ride. 

Having years of experience in the industry has led us to perfect our services, whereby we offer premium services in the form of well-maintained vehicles at economical rates. Thus if you have clearly defined your travel needs, you can easily choose a vehicle of your choice from the diverse range of available latest models. 

Ascent Car Rental can facilitate you in selecting the vehicle of choice, as you can choose the options provided, including vehicle type, number of passengers, luggage amount, number of doors, and child seats if required.

Ask the right questions

Once you have determined what type and size of car rightly cater to your travel requirements, the next step is to consider the services offered by the rental company and the associated terms and conditions. It is important to probe these aspects, particularly when booking online. So, here are a few things you need to look into.

Requirements of the booking process

You may be curious about the pre-requisites of the booking process before you finalize the deal, primarily the payment mechanism and advance booking charges, if any. Most customers are apprehensive about the hassle they may have to endure in booking a vehicle, particularly when they are traveling to an out-of-city destination. 

Ascent Car Rental offers a stress-free booking process. Customers are only required to provide a credit card or debit card number and do not have to pay any cash up front, prepaid cards, or debit deposit at the time of booking. 

Car rental services offered in the package

Traveling in a foreign location may prompt you to seek guiding assistance or inquire about the amenities associated with the car rental company’s services, for instance, a navigation system.

You may be pleased to know that Ascent Car Rental provides the basic essentials, including amenities such as GPS navigation and child seats with the rental vehicle. The company also offers special features such as snowboard and bike racks, among others. 

If you are on holiday and traveling for leisure to Vancouver, you may benefit from a guided tour, also offered by car rental companies. Ascent Car Rental offers exciting guiding tours to the most notable destinations around Vancouver, which also include pickup from your hotel and drop to the meeting point with the respective tour package. 

Car pickup and drop-off points 

If you are arriving from out of the city, you may also want to find out where you can pick up the car and drop it off once you are done. It is an important consideration, particularly if you are short on time or do not know your way around the city. 

If you book with Ascent Car Rental, the pickup location is flexible, and the vehicle can be available at your disposal as soon as you arrive, whether by sea or by air. Similarly, once you are done, you can return the vehicle to any location within Canada. In any case, the company facility is located centrally and conveniently accessible from the airport and sea terminal. It does not get more convenient than this.

Insurance requirements

Car rental companies usually require their customers to purchase insurance to ensure safety and prevent financial burden. It is important to look into what insurance entails in terms of coverage. However, Ascent Car Rental does not require customers to purchase additional insurance as all clients are covered with an optional LDW (Loss Damage Waiver).

Conclusive remarks

We hope this article was helpful in terms of guiding you through the various aspects of renting a car. While it is important to cover all your bases before finalizing the booking process, choosing a reliable car rental company like Ascent Car Rental is equally important.

It is the right choice of services that makes all the difference and will make your experience satisfying and offer you peace of mind while traveling. With Ascent, you are all sorted and in control of your travel plans- have a wonderful trip!
