Sometimes things can go wrong when you least expect it. This is especially true if you are hiring a vehicle in a foreign country and driving in unfamiliar conditions. From punctures to breakdowns and accidents, several unexpected incidents can cast a damp shadow over your car rental experience. However, rather than looking down your luck, there are several ways by which you can handle such situations without panicking. In this write-up, we’ll be sharing a few such tips to help you overcome such troubles.
The rental vehicle that you just got for yourself might be the most well-maintained car you can find; however, there is pretty much nothing you can do to avoid getting a tire puncture. If you notice that your vehicle has a puncture, the first thing you should do is to pull over to the roadside. If you do decide to drive on with a puncture, it can cause considerable damage to the wheel rims, suspension, and other vital components within the vehicle. If you are confident of your mechanic skills, then a quick swap will help you to get on the road again. However, if you are unsure or not willing to get your hands dirty, simply get in touch with your rental providers’ roadside assistance team, and they’ll be able to help you out. At Quicklease Car Rental, we offer 24/7 roadside emergency assistance, so irrespective of your car trouble, we’ll be on hand to help in the shortest time possible.
Dashboard Warning Lights
As stated previously, if you do find that something is wrong with your vehicle, the first thing you should is not panic. Pullover the car to a safe place and try to work out what exactly went wrong. Most modern vehicles will explain the meaning behind the warning light. If you are unable to identify the exact problem, bring your car back to your accommodation and give a call to your rental provider.
Cracked or Chipped Windscreen
While the chances of this happening in Dubai is small, it can still happen. If you notice damage on your rental car’s windshield due to a chipped stone, pull over and evaluate whether the damage is too much that you can’t drive anymore. As mentioned with the other problems, contact your rental provider immediately as and when it happens.
The Vehicle has Come to a Halt!
If the vehicle has completely broken down and is not working at all, try to bring it to a safe place. In case that’s not possible, put on the hazard lights to protect yourself and others on the road. At Quick Lease Car Rental, we provide replacement vehicles to our customers during such occurrences.
Accidents can happen on the road, maybe due to a fault from your side or perhaps because of something else. Irrespective of the cause, if you are involved in an accident, the first thing you should do is not to panic. Secondly, contact the police and your rental provider and explain to them as to what happened. Additionally, you should obtain a police report if you are hoping to claim insurance against the damage.
