Car Hire in Albany

With so many options for car hire now available, you may have wondered what experienced travellers look for when making a choice for rental cars.

The team at Realistic Rental Cars have prepared this quick guide for you to make the process a whole lot easier, and you’ll find we can answer even more of your questions if you just give us a quick call.

First of all, ask yourself if you REALLY need to hire from the airport. It’s pretty common for car hire companies to include a substantial charge for the privilege of picking up your vehicle directly from the airport. If you’re going to be based on the North Shore, you might find the shuttle service we offer will make things much easier for you. Your car hire and drop-off can be facilitated far from the hectic airport environment, making the whole process stress-free.

Choosing a vehicle needs serious thought put into it. Probably the most important aspect before even looking at the rental cars that are available is the transmission – be sure to specify whether manual or automatic is important to you. Most vehicles these days come with an automatic option, but it’s important to have that clear before you get your heart set on a vehicle you won’t enjoy driving.

What considering the size of the vehicle, consider also the size of the driver. Some smaller vehicles may lack in legroom, especially if you’re going to need to make use of the back seats. Sportier models are often lower to the ground too, so keep that in mind if you’re likely to be repeatedly entering and exiting the rental car.

Also remember that children can sometimes require a lot more baggage brought with them when you consider strollers etc. All to say the car you hire may need a lot more trunk space than leg room!

When you book your car hire with Realistic Rental Cars, you can pick up or drop off at any time within our regular office hours of 8am-5pm Monday to Friday. Don’t be put off if you require a time outside these hours, we will happily make alternative arrangements that suit your travel needs if required.
