Car accidents happen when we least expect them. Whether it's a minor fender bender or a major collision, it pays to have a plan of action prepared in case you are ever involved in an accident while driving your rental vehicle. How you react could prevent future injuries, reduce repair damages, and accelerate the clean up and repair process.

Sharing the road with a big, noisy truck can be scary, especially if you're driving an unfamiliar car rental. The length and width alone of these large vehicles can often create special driving situations for those operating smaller vehicles. In order to safely share the road with a truck, you need to be aware of its capabilities and limitations.

Living in a rural area tends to be a peaceful experience, and some people like nothing better than to escape from a busy city and head to the tranquility of the countryside. Which is great… until you encounter rural roads for the first time!

“We were out on a date, in my daddy’s car/ We hadn’t driven very far/ There in the road, straight ahead/ A car was stalled, the engine was dead/ I couldn’t stop, so I swerved to the right/ I’ll never forget the sound that night/ The screamin’ tires, the bustin’ glass/ The painful scream that I heard last”.

Although we are more obsessed with safety on the road now more than at any other time in our history, with our cars being built with blind spot sensors and backup cameras, and with laws designed to eliminate the use of cell phones or fiddling with radios when driving, one important factor is consistently overlooked when we take to the road—pedestrians and, especially, cyclists.

"Are we there yet?" "Mom, he's touching me!" "Dad, she looked at me again!" "Punch Buggy, no punch back!" Many parents have probably heard these and similar cries from their children when going on any sort of road trip longer than an hour or so, especially when the trip is made in a rental car during the holidays. Keeping kids busy – or at least out of trouble – on a road trip is one of the toughest feats a parent can achieve.

Do you hate packing your car for a family vacation? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. Anyone who’s ever had to pack a car rental for a holiday family trip knows just how frustrating this process can be. Dad insists he has the perfect strategy, while Mom refuses to give up control. Even the kids can be a nuisance, insisting that certain items remain accessible for the duration of the trip.

Rain, rain, go away, come again when I’m not driving an unfamiliar car rental! Driving an unfamiliar vehicle during inclement weather isn’t just frustrating – it can also be downright dangerous. Rain takes the blame for thousands of car accidents every year. Sadly, many of these accidents are preventable.
