Before you leave the lot

Make sure you go over a few items before you leave the car rental lot. It's worth the time to:

  • Look over your car and determine if there is any damage or scratches. Be sure to make note of it on the paperwork, or you may get charged for it
  • Make you have a properly inflated spare tire, lug wrench, and jack in the trunk
  • Familiarize yourself with the car. Adjust the mirrors and seats to your liking, and figure out how to turn on the lights and wipers
  • Figure out how to work the radio or entertainment features. It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new city
