To replace the wheel or eliminate minor defects, most serious companies can send their mechanic to the place of your stay.

Just like in your own car, you need to monitor the safety of items that can not be insured. For example, a radio tape recorder, a jack, a cigarette lighter, documents for the car, first-aid kit, keys. If they are lost or damaged, you will have to pay a fine. The amount of the penalty does not depend on the type of insurance, it is not included in the franchise. In the lease agreement, the list of these things and the amount of the fine are indicated.

Extend the rental period of the car, many companies can be on the phone, but it is better to warn about it in advance, so that you will have the car that you took.

For the period of rent you are given a car with a certain amount of fuel, most often it is a full tank, but you must definitely specify this issue when accepting the car. The amount of gasoline with which the car is provided should appear in the lease agreement. With the same amount of gasoline you need to return the car, otherwise you will have to pay it at a higher price (usually about 30 rubles per liter).

At long-term rent of the car (for the term of more than 1 month) you, probably, should arrive to the point of hire for carrying out of scheduled maintenance of the car. For this period (if the service will last more than 1 day) you must provide a car of this class for replacement.

8. Within the period stipulated in the contract, notify the Lessor about the incident, provide the original DPS certificate under Form No. 31 and provide the vehicle for inspection of the rental company

For theft of parts and components, as well as for causing damage to the car by actions of third parties:

Please note that even in the event of minor damage to the car, you must inform the ATS and make a report, otherwise you will have to pay for the damage yourself or their value will be deducted from the deductible amount (depending on the type of insurance chosen by you).

When operating the vehicle, observe the rules stated in the contract. For example, if in the contract you have declared a certain territorial area of ​​operation of a rented car, then you should not leave it. Also, do not exceed the indicated mileage limit.

Return of the car to the landlord.

When returning the car to the landlord, it will be checked for compliance with the actual damage recorded earlier. The mechanic of the company will check its technical condition and the existing damages. The detected damage will be fixed in a special application, which will indicate the amount you need to pay (damage, loss of uninsured parts, additional services that you used).

When returning the car, make sure that it contains the amount of gasoline you rented, otherwise you will have to pay for gasoline at a price much higher than usual (usually around 30 rubles per liter). Also the case is with the cleanliness of the car and its interior: in most car rental companies you will have to pay for a car wash.

Please note that the rental contract specifies the exact time in which you need to return the car, try to return it on time, because for 2-3 hours delay you will be paid already as for the next day (especially when renting a car abroad).
