I’ve got a secret to share with you . . .
People aren’t buying sports cars anymore. Instead, they’re hiring them because not only is it considerably cheaper, but it’s a hell of a lot safer too in the event of an accident.
Lets look at it this way. If you owned a Ferrari, you’ll spend a few thousand pounds a year maintaining it right? Well can you imagine if you actually had an accident in it? The costs to have it repaired by a Ferrari approved garage would be incredible.
Why Hire a Luxury Car?
People hire luxury cars in London for many reasons. Some like to boast about their wealth whereas others like to use a luxury vehicle for corporate usage.
However, most car hires for super cars come from students aged between 16 and 21. As you’ve probably already guessed, they hire them for transport to and from their prom nights.
More luxurious vehicles such as Rolls Royce’s and Bentleys tend to attract brides and grooms as transport on their wedding days. There is often a lot of wedding car hire packages available to suit most requirements.
Here’s How You Hire a Car Correctly . . .
Anyone can open up their laptop and search for prestige car hire Milton Keynes or London, and you’d probably find a lot of results. However, you need to make sure that you hire a vehicle of that value correctly to avoid unexpected costs and charges.
First things first; get an idea of the type of vehicle that you want to hire.
Try browsing the Internet and asking friends or family members for recommendations. After all, they’re your friends and family, they wouldn’t refer you to someone that they’ve had a bad experience with.
When you find a company that you think it reliable, that’s when you can start to dig.
Asking the Right Questions:
As with any reputable car hire company, they should have a list of set minimum requirements for anyone looking to hire a vehicle. Unless you’re notified of these points, you need to make sure that you get the answers one way or another.
Correct Age Range:
To drive a car like a Ferrari or Lamborghini, you’ll going to need a significant amount of driving experience and are at least 28 years old if you want to hire a self drive vehicle.
Failing that, if you’re under 28, a chauffeur driven service may be more suitable.
Any Mileage Charges:
In most cases, unless you’re hiring a standard vehicle, there will be a mileage limit in place. Most luxury car hire agents limit you to 400 miles unless you prepay for more.
We cannot stress enough the importance of getting this set right or you could find yourself on the wrong end of a £5 per additional mile charge. If you do 450 miles on a 400-mile limit, you could find yourself having to pay an extra £250.
Pick-Up & Drop-Off Locations:
It’s important to understand your exact pick up and drop off locations unless you’re having the car delivered and collected from your home or business location.
Just like mileage charges, you could find yourself having to pay late drop off charges. Make sure that you notify the lender of any delays to your drop off journey to avoid them.
