Busting Rental Car Myths: Part 1

Across the country, people are getting behind the wheel of a rental car, believing some of the craziest rental car myths. But, contrary to what you’ve been told, rental cars are an extremely cost-effective way to travel.  This is even more true when renting from Ability Rent A Car. So, let’s debunk some of the most famous myths about rentals.

Busting Rental Car Myths: Part 1

Myth No. 1: You Pay for Any Previous Damage

One of the biggest fears people have is that they’ll be held responsible for the damage they never caused. However, this just isn’t the case. Each rental car is inspected and documented in thorough detail. We keep this on file, so you don’t have to worry about paying up for someone else’s mistakes.

Myth No. 2: The Bigger the Company, the Better

There are a lot of big corporate names in the rental car industry. However, that doesn’t always mean you’ll be getting the best prices or deals. You’ll often find they don’t even have great customer service. With smaller fleets, you get one-on-one service and treatment. Plus, no stone goes unturned regarding vehicle maintenance and upkeep with a smaller fleet.

Myth No. 3: You Can’t Pay Cash

When busting rental car myths, this is one of our favorites. While most rental car companies require you to have a credit card on hand, that’s not how we operate. Here at Ability Rent A Car, we accept cash as a form of payment. The price you’re quoted is the price you’ll pay. So, not only can we keep travel costs low, but we’re also able to serve our clients best.

So many people come to us believing these myths and others, and we’re happy to bust them. Not only is the lot at Ability Rent A Car full of reliable cars, vans, trucks, and SUVs, but we also work with drivers 18 and older.
