General Info on Car Rentals
People need cars to travel around, to do business or just to enjoy in views while they are in some touristic places. Some of them have their own cars and prefer traveling huge distances in order to enjoy in roadtrip, while some like to rent luxury cars and enjoy in their own way.
Luxury car rentals emerged in 1904 in Germany, when the first car rental company had been started, and in the beginning had only three cars available for renting. A year later, Ford Liver Company emerged and had an offer with 18 cars. The company was named Saunders System and expanded its operating to 56 cities in USA. In 1920, Godfrey David established Europcar in Britain, which later was moved to Paris.
Car rental companies work in the way they purchase a certain number of vehicles, when they rent those cars to customers who must pay fee in order to rent the cars. The cars can range from small sports car, to SUV and vans, depending on what you need. Convertibles, hybrid/electric (such as Tesla) or big vans also can be found in the offer in the majority of companies. In order to generate the appropriate rental price, the Association of Car Rental Industry Systems and Standards (ACRISS) made Car Classification Code system.
This system describes size, number of doors, type of gearbox and access to AC system. Also you can find some of the characteristics in addition, like number of seats of volume of trunk. These are maybe not important to you, but for people who go on vacation with family, these things are crucial. Some surveys indicate that the most rented luxurious car rented by larger families (4 and more members) is Chevy Tahoe, a Chevrolet SUV model with V8 engine and 355hp. This SUV is famous for its space – it can host 7 people with enough space for luggage. If you want to go on a family trip without worrying whether you will be able to take everything with you, this SUV is the perfect match for you, as any luxury car rental Los Angeles can offer.
All the cars have installed GPS, so you don’t need to worry whether you will lose yourself somewhere. This feature is not added only because of mentioned reason, but also because the owners wanted to prevent going to specific regions. Another interesting thing that can be found is the possibility of using renewable fuels – that means that your car will operate on biofuel (ethanol or vegetable oil in most cases) or hydrogen fuel. This is really good for our environment, isn’t it ?
In any case, if you decide to spend your holiday cruising in some luxury car, I suggest you visiting some luxury car rentals and companies. Holiday spent with the family is not spent well if you don’t rent some big SUV to drive your family around in your favorite Jeep ! Always look for discounts – most of the luxury car rentals have discounts on daily basis that will save you some money !
