Whether you’re on your way to rent a car for the first time or have done so multiple times so far, the process can be equally stimulating as well as anxiety-provoking, depending on your knowledge of the subject. Questions such as ‘should I rent a car with a chauffeur or self-drive it? Which fuel package should I opt for?’, etc are all important to consider when it comes to going to a car rental. In this blog, we’re going to provide answers to some of those questions, giving you an overview of how you can rent a car with Deinfa Motors and other rental services.
Key Things to Consider Before You Rent a Car
- You’ll need an authentic driver’s license and credit card that you’ll need to show during the time of registration. Although, when it comes to Deinfa, you can easily pay cash for your rental purposes, although you will still be required to hand in your official identification proof beforehand.
- Find out the kind of services you can have access to when renting your car. Whether the rental services allow for self-driven cars and what’s their criteria for damages, etc. At Deinfa, you have access to two kinds of plans: corporate and retail.

What to do when Picking Your Rental Car
Bring Your ID
As previously stated, you need to bring your authentic identification papers to the rental services, so they can register you and give you the relevant receipts to make your journey more comfortable and hassle-free.
Choose Your Vehicle
The second thing you need to do is choose the kind of vehicle you want to be driving during your trip. This can be based on the kind of journey you’re about to go on from mid-sized cars to SUVs, etc.
Set, and be mindful of, timings for your leaving for and getting back from your journey. It saves you from extra charges and also makes you come off as a professional and trustworthy customer if you follow through with the timing you made the commitment for.
Assess for Prior Damages
It’s vital that you assess the car for any prior damages that may have occurred to it. This will help you stay up-to-date and alert as not to pay for damages that you didn’t even cause in the first place.
Assess Extra Costs
It’s also important to be mindful of all the extra costs the rental company may have you sign-up for. E.g. at Deinfa Motors, if you think the company’s ‘with fuel’ package plan is too costly, and you’re better off with the ‘without fuel’ plan, then you need to sign up for the latter instead of the former, etc.
What to do when Giving Back the Rental Car
Fill up the Fuel Tank
It’s a policy for every car rental company to have their cars back with the same amount of fuel in the tank as there were before you took it out for your journey. Hence, the first thing as you’re about to return your rental car would be to refill its tank.
Return the Car During Operating Hours
No company is going to stay up after hours just to have you give their car back. Hence, as a professional, you need to be respectful of the time you’d committed to and return the car back during working hours, and avoid having to pay additional hourly costs.
As you did before you took the car out, you need to record every damage on the diagram sheet that may have occurred to the car during your journey. This will ensure that you’re up-to-date with any damage penalty you may have to pay. You also need to be mindful of which costs the company’s own insurance will cover and which ones you’ll be asked to pay (Depreciation Amount).
At Deinfa Motors, if the company driver was riding the car, the company will be liable for the damages. Whereas in self-driven plans, the person who rented the car will have to pay for the damages, although terms and conditions apply to this rule.
Get a Receipt
It’s essential to get a receipt after you’ve given the vehicle back to the company. This will be a record of the time you returned the car, with all the costs incurred during the journey. And it may come in handy in the future.
