iCarhireinsurance comes up with New Year Tips to stop car renters being ripped off

To start 2012 off on the right foot the iCarhireinsurance.com team has come up with Five useful tips to avoid sales pressure at the car rental desk and also making sure that people hiring a car are not ripped off when they return a hire car.

Tip One: Take Photographic Evidence - something I have personally done when I have rented when I could not get anyone to sign off my comments when I collected a hire car.

Tip Two:  Audit Trail icarhireinsurance suggests downloading a GPS Tracking app to the renter's smart phone to create an audit trail of where they have been.

Tip Three: Check Final Bill for Overcharging - Check the  final bill from the hire car company to ensure that extras have not been added like petrol etc. Also get the car signed off when you return it and check your credit card statement.

Tip Four: Don't buy insurance from the Car Hire Rental Desk

 - they say a car hire customer can save up to 80% buying car hire excess insurance in advance from iCarhireinsurance.com - Find out more Here

Tip Five: Take Photographic Evidence at the End of the Trip - If someone can't check your car in, then take photos. Digital photos should be able to show dates if the photo is taken by a digital camera or mobile phone.

So if you are planning on hiring a car in the near future or even later in the year it is worthwhile considering all of these.
