Nine tips to rent a car from BeeRides!

Do you know that great feeling when your plane touches down at your destination airport, you get off and pick up your rental car to start your adventure. In order to make this experience truly outstanding, we have collected a couple of tips that will help you make your travel by rental car even more comfortable.

What shall I pay attention when I pick up my rental car?

1. Check the exact location of our parking lot

Our parking lots are situated at different locations in different cities. For example, in Dortmund, you can find us directly at the airport terminal, while in Budapest we are located in a parking lot close to the airport that you can reach by booking the non-stop available transfer bus. The exact location to pick up your car is available both on the page of the selected car, in our FAQ, as well as in the confirmation email that you receive from us.

2. Get familiar with our express key delivery process! The first stand in line on your trip will surely not be with us.

The express key handover through our Smart Locker solution is one of our innovations that we are the proudest of. When you arrive at our parking lot, you will find this locker close to where our cars are parked. In exchange for not being able to talk to you, our Smart Locker will hand over the keys to you in less than one minute and it will not try to sell you additional features that you have already decided against in the online booking process. In case you have any questions while picking up your keys, our friendly staff is waiting for your call 24/7 all days of the year!

3. Petrol or diesel - an important difference!

You might have already experienced this when using a car that is not yours: you arrive at the gas station, and for a moment you are not sure if the car needs petrol or diesel. This is an important detail to be familiar with when renting a car. We always tell you in the booking process which kind of fuel you need to fill up with, and in case you are not sure then just give us a call!

4. Make sure you book your favorite: manual vs automatic gearbox

Everybody has their preference, and probably you would not like to find another type of gearbox in your rental car than the one you are used to. That is why it is important to check which gearbox the car has when booking online. We indicate this information on the information page of the car.

Bring comfort into focus!

5. Traveling with a lot of luggage? Make sure the rental car has enough space for them!

Everybody has their preference, and probably you would not like to find another type of gearbox in your rental car than the one you are used to. That is why it is important to check which gearbox the car has when booking online. We indicate this information on the information page of the car.

6. Rather sweat on the beach than in your rental car!

If you are on a longer trip, you should make sure that they fit in your rental car easily. You can find information about the size of our cars in the booking process where you can see how many doors it has got as well as how many people it can transport. Our pictures on the website are for your information only, so make sure to check what is written in the information box next to the door icon.

How to avoid unnecessary costs

7. Plan your trip to know how many kilometers you will drive

It is important to understand how much distance you are planning to drive your rental car. Our daily limit is set to 150 kilometers, this distance you can travel without paying any extra fee. This allowance can also be accumulated, so if you rented a car with us for seven days, then you can use your 1050 kilometers also in two or three days of driving. However, if you already know that your limit will not be enough for your trip then make sure to purchase some more kilometers before starting your rental. Otherwise we will need to charge you a small extra fee per kilometer.

8. Pay attention to border crossings

Within the European Union, it has become very easy to cross borders, especially within the Schengen zone. When renting a car with us, please make sure to purchase the border crossing option in case you would like to visit another country!

9. Make sure to fill up the car to the same fuel level as at the start of the rental

When you first start your rent, you need to make sure to check on how much fuel it is filled with. It is an important step for our sharing community to make sure that we can give back the cars with the same fuel level as they were parked in. If you do not remember the exact stand of the fuel level when bringing back the car to us, do not worry. You can check this information in your emails as well as in your profile on BeeRides.com. The most important thing is that the at the start and at the end of your rental the fuel level should be the same!

We hope that with these tips we could help you understand the rental process at BeeRides. As for the next step, we hope that you will choose a car from our selection! We hope to see you soon in our parking lot!
