When choosing a car to rent, your choice will depend on the purpose of why you’re renting a car in the first place. If you want it simply for standard transportation, then a small car that can accommodate 4 people (not including the driver) is enough.
But, if you are renting one for cargo transportation, then you’ll need something bigger. Probably a cargo truck that can carry heavy loads for a long trip. So, to help you out, we’ve divided cars for rent according to their classifications.
These days, most cars have GPS on their dashboard that can help people navigate their way to their destinations. Many of our customers rent cars with built-in GPS. Most of them are asking for GPS for travel purposes.
Some cars being rented these days also have automatic high beams and a heated steering wheel. Both are game changers that improves road safety and navigation. There is also automatic emergency braking, push-button start, passive entry, adaptive cruise control, and more.
Big companies are spending more and more on automatic emergency braking as they consider it to improve road safety.
In New Zealand, there is a separate business sector focused on cargo shipping via land. However, car rentals are now offering these types of car rental services with many inclusions including basic insurance and roadside assistance.
Car rental companies even have more trucks in their fleet compared to some transportation providers.
For car rentals, they encourage most of their customers to get a package that includes a designated driver. This is a movement by the transport service to minimise road accidents. New technology is also being integrated into these trucks, mainly for navigation and better control.
However, there are no new updates on innovations so far in 2020.
That’s right, here in New Zealand, people are renting cars for the sake of showing up or riding in style. You can now rent a luxury car you can then drive for a given amount of time. People mostly rent these cars for a day or two.
With this classification, people can drive luxurious rides by paying hundreds of dollars.
There is so much innovation going on within the automotive industry which car rental companies adapting to, especially with people asking for new features. This is the same as the evolution of the casino industry into its online counterpart.
People spent millions to bring the casino to the online world and you can get a taste of that from Royal Vegas New Zealand.
