Choosing a vehicle: Dimensions, categories, and classes of rental cars

29 Sep. 2022

When you are faced with the decision regarding the class of rental car to choose for your next trip, it can be difficult. Economic? Premium? Luxurious? Or SUV?

So which vehicle is the best option for your trip, whether it's business or just a trip? As vehicles become larger and more specialized, rates can be higher, so there is no need to rent a full-size SUV, for example, if compact size is sufficient for your type of trip.

Here are some tips:

Although it may be tempting to try to save space and thus choose a cheaper vehicle, remember that you can even be fined if the visual space of the car is limited.

Stacking or cramming your luggage from the beginning also means that you will have even more difficulties if you plan to purchase items during the trip; if your luggage does not fit properly in the vehicle when you are at the rental location, ask for another car before leaving. Having extra space will come in handy later.

If you intend to go more kilometers, we recommend a higher class of the car. Although this can increase the cost of fuel, you will want adequate space to move around, especially if you have small children in car seats and want to have more space between them.

Another thing to consider is your comfort level. If you will be traveling with a group of people, you will need an SUV or even a van-type car. Also, you may want an additional driver anyway (request this at the time of rental), so that there is no need for one person to drive a very long distance and in fatigue conditions.

Business trips can be a great time to rent a fun vehicle like a convertible or other luxury or premium vehicle, but if you'll be spending a lot of time in indoor parking lots, a smaller vehicle may be easier to drive.

Above all else, don't hesitate to ask our customer service representative questions. For safe rent-a-car services, choose Compexit Rent-A-Car with confidence.
