Before you leave the lot

Before you begin on your Roanoke vacation, make sure you check a few items prior to leaving the rental lot. It's important to:

  • Look over the vehicle and make certain there is no dents 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, and note how to turn on the lights and windshield wipers
  • Get comfortable operating the entertainment and GPS (if available). It's best to limit any unneeded distractions when you are navigating a new area
