Some international chain Chinese service car shops, in addition to service and car conditions pass, can provide Chinese car rental services, very suitable for foreign language small white and the first time to go abroad to drive the crowd.
To rent a car in Canada, you must present a valid international credit card, such as VISA, MASTERCARD, etc., which must be your own credit card.
Original copy of the driver's passport.
A driver's license
A driver's license is essential. If you want to rent a car in Canada, you also need a Translation of your Chinese driver's license to help the local police or car rental company read your license, but it must be a Certified Translation.
Note: Most car rental companies require drivers to have a driver's license for at least one year. Some car rental companies also have an age limit for drivers.
Most car rental companies quote only rent and taxes, not insurance. The following are some of the more common types of insurance.
After an accident, you need insurance to cover repairs and medical bills if you cause damage to the other party's vehicle or person.
Personal Accident Insurance (PAI)
Personal accident insurance, usually covered by your own travel or accident insurance, if not, you can get it from a car rental company. PAI also typically covers Personal Effects Coverage (PEC), which covers the cost of stolen or damaged items in your car.
Crash Waiver Claim Agreement (CDW)
The most common part of car rental insurance. With this agreement, the car rental company will not claim compensation from you if an accident results in damage to your rental car. It is also possible that Loss Damage relinquishment (LDW) will cover any Loss due to theft, robbery, etc. In general, CDW includes LDW. That is to say, the insurance covers your own car.
In the case of adequate budget, it is recommended to choose the most comprehensive insurance coverage possible. Mainly because:
First, the cost of foreign car repair is more expensive;
Second, if personal injury is caused, not only the medical fee is high, but also the compensation will be very high;
Third, the greater the scope of protection, the more you can reduce the follow-up trouble, help you save a lot of time.
1. Buy from ICBC
But the premise of buying this is that you must have your own insurance, and including Collision Coverage to be eligible to buy.
2. Buy it from a rental car company
The car rental company will try to sell you their insurance, but what they're selling you is not insurance, but the car rental company is in a sense giving up the right to claim from you if you have an accident.
3. Use a Cover Rental Car credit card
This is the only way to have car rental insurance without you paying, but the prerequisite is that you use a cover Rental car credit card to pay for the car.
1. Bring all documents and guarantee the quota
The main driver should bring all the relevant documents and two international credit cards under his/her name to ensure that he/she has enough available credit for the pre-authorization freeze of the vehicle deposit.
If you pick up the car in advance, you must return the car in advance
If you pick up the car in advance, you should return the car at the same time in advance, otherwise the store will charge additional rental fees according to the store price.
3. Additional drivers should be registered
If there is an additional driver, be sure to show the relevant information and register at the store, otherwise the insurance will be invalid if the additional driver has an accident.
4. Check the vehicle
Check the car carefully when you pick it up. If any abnormality is found (even if it is a very small scratch), it is necessary to point out to the staff and indicate the damage position on the inspection sheet. Do not trust the verbal commitment of the staff and do not mark the small scratches. If conditions and time permit, it is suggested to take photos to record, so as to avoid disputes when returning the car.
5. Take good care of all contracts and documents
