What to consider when renting a car/ Pickup Truck

Insurance: Check the different insurance options available at the car rental company. Make sure you understand the coverage included, such as liability insurance, theft insurance, and damage insurance. Consider whether you want to take out additional insurance to provide extra protection. AB Car rental offers CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) and the Full Coverage Plan. CDW is a basic insurance that covers damage to the rental car with a deductible and deposit of $550. The Full Coverage Plan, on the other hand, provides more extensive coverage. With this plan, you have $0 deposit, $0 deductible, and all damages, theft, and roadside assistance are fully covered for both pickups and cars. This means you don't have to worry about possible costs in case of damage. Moreover, you don't need a credit card.

Deposit and deductible: Inquire about the deposit and deductible required when renting the car. Make sure you understand how the deposit will be refunded and the conditions associated with it. In some cases, a credit card may be required to secure the deposit. With the Full Coverage Plan from AB Car Rental, you have $0 deposit, $0 deductible, and no credit card is needed.

Fuel policy: Check the fuel policy of the car rental company. AB Car rental provides their pickups and other rental cars with a full tank, and you are expected to return the vehicle with a full tank as well.
Damage control: Some car rental companies require a thorough inspection of the car. This helps prevent disputes over damage that was already present when renting the car. With the Full Coverage Plan from AB Car Rental, there is no inspection upon pick-up or return, as you have a $0 deductible and deposit. This is convenient and gives you peace of mind, as you don't have to worry about potential damages.
Mileage restriction: Check if there is a mileage restriction on the rental car. For all rental cars (pickups and midsize automatics) at AB Car Rental, there is no mileage restriction, allowing you to explore the island without worrying about extra costs.
Age restrictions: Inquire about any age restrictions for renting a car. Some rental companies have a minimum age requirement, often 21 or 25 years old, to rent a car. When renting a car at AB Car Rental, you must be at least 23 years old and have held a valid driver's license for at least 1 year.
Additional drivers: If you plan to share the rental car or pickup with other people, ask about the policy regarding additional drivers. At AB Car Rental, additional drivers are for free when you choose the Full Coverage Plan.
Vehicle pick-up: With AB Car Rental, you benefit from convenience. They offer a complimentary taxi service that picks you up for free, and you'll be at their office within 1 minute. This avoids long queues and inspections for damage at the airport. Additionally, they have an air-conditioned waiting area, so you can wait comfortably without standing in the sun.
Vehicle return: Inquire about the procedure for returning the rental car. Check if there are specific times for returning the car and whether there are any fees for late returns. Make sure to return the car in the same condition as when you picked it up and remove all personal belongings.

By paying attention to these points, you can rent a car or pickup truck with a better understanding of the terms and expectations. This will help ensure a smooth and worry-free car rental experience during your stay in Bonaire. Enjoy exploring the island!
