Top tips for renting a car in Ohio

  • Most car renters going to Ohio think that rental companies should pay for the gas after paying for the car. While it seems convenient for rental companies to pay for gas, renters could be paying for this convenience later while dropping off the rental vehicle. You will have to refill the tank before returning the vehicle to your rental company. The majority of rental companies will charge you for the gas at some point. In most cases, the repayment rate is higher than the amount you will spend purchasing gas yourself. Thus, insist on filling the tank yourself, rather than expecting the rental company to pay for gas on your behalf.
  • Some car rentals in Ohio tend to lure visitors with their insurance plans. Some companies will even introduce their plans right from the booking process. Others will pressure prospective car renters to purchase their plans the moment the renters arrive at their premises to pick up the car. However, clients don’t necessarily need to have insurance to rent cars in Ohio. Although insurance can cover any collision damages that may occur as you transverse Ohio, your auto insurance coverage can still cover such damages and personal liability for your rental car. Thus, avoid any rental company that is urging you to purchase their insurance policy when booking or renting a car.
  • There are many guard rails all over the roads in Ohio. If your car rental accidentally hits the rail, you will have to pay for the resulting damages. Someone else could have used the car you are renting before you even book the car. They could also cause damages and the rental company might not even notice it once the person returns the vehicle. Hence, always inspect a rental car before picking it up from any rental agency in Ohio. Check both the exterior and interior of the vehicle. Contact the rental company if there are any damages before using the car for your Ohio tour. If you skip this step, the company will insist you pay for damages you didn’t cause.
  • Traffic rules in Ohio are pretty strict compared to traffic rules in other regions. Drivers can incur heavy fines for making small traffic offenses, such as overtaking, wrong U-turns and obstructing other motorists. Drivers should acquaint themselves with traffic rules before driving in the state. Foreign car drivers should be particularly observant of traffic rules, lest they commit an offense that will rob them of the opportunity to drive in Ohio. You have to be particularly mindful of how you drive your rental car in congested city areas. Traffic in such areas can be grueling and you need to ensure you don’t run into problems with the traffic authorities for making minor offenses, such as driving under the influence of alcohol, obstruction and causing damages to other vehicles while driving.
