What to watch if we travel abroad with our rented car?

Hotel Reservation, Parking

Be sure to be careful before going to the big road. If we go on a business trip, we have a bit easier, because our client, at best, is our client. In the case of private roads, it is worth considering carefully whether our reserved accommodation is indeed there.
We often encounter cases where online reservations are not booked on the site and they do not know about booking the broker at the reception. It is advisable to contact the hotel directly by e-mail or by telephone, just a few days before departure.

The rented vehicle should always be stored in a closed parking lot.

Use of our rental car accessories

GPS navigation device rental

Mobile use is problematic abroad? Do not always have field strength and applications are terribly expensive? Request us a GPS with an up-to-date navigation system so you will definitely find the place in the direction!

Are you going to mountain hiking in the mountainous mountains and not getting your bicycles in your luggage? Rent a universal bicycle carrier for your combo car and deliver your bikes safely and safely! Do you want to take a lot of packages for a long trip? Do not break your head, lend a roof box at the right size and pack up all the necessary supplies for your vacation!

Hire a child seat

In order to ensure the safety of our children, always use a child restraint or stretcher in foreign countries.
In our large packed van and in-car cars, besides the many packages, the rear seats also allow the kids to fit comfortably.
Do not tire of carrying your child's suits unnecessarily at the airport! Feel free to ask for our baby carriers, our children's seats and our seat elevators so that everyone can enjoy the ride comfortably and safely from baby to toddler!

At United Car Rental, this does not cost a one-for-a-yard extra cost as our company is family-friendly, so you can get up to 3 safety seats free of charge for all our cars!

It is important to know that the person who committed the offense of committing a vehicle is not relevant, since responsibility here is objective. In the case of rented vehicles, this changes. The Vehicle Operator shall be exempt from liability if he can demonstrate that he has used the vehicle. By signing a lease, we declare that from the start of the rental period to the end of the rental we are responsible for the used car and for the offenses committed, we are also liable for subsequent surcharges. Always make sure that you are waiting or parked in the permitted area, adhere to the traffic rules of your country, observe the speed limits and the mandatory tolls to avoid any additional costs and disadvantages that may arise later.

Speed limits at home and abroad

Before traveling abroad, it is worth following the traffic rules in your country, mostly the maximum allowed speed. The following speed limit applies in Hungary: For cars, motorbikes and 3500 kg with a maximum permissible gross vehicle mass:

- in a residential area of 50 km/h
- outside of residential area of 50 km/h
- on the highway 110 km/h
- motorway 130 km/h

Don't drink and drive!

car alcohol forbidden drink drive

In the countries we have visited, it is especially worth listening to alcohol consumption!
As in Hungary, in Romania, the Czech Republic and Slovakia it is also not possible to drink alcohol before and during driving, alcohol consumption is very strict in the neighboring countries as well.

In most European Member States, the maximum permissible blood alcohol levels apply to 0.01% to 0.05%. This corresponds to a very small quantity, so it can be said that at most a small glass of beer or wine can be consumed freely.
Only if you have under our official routine check your blood alcohol level is below the allowed minimum.
For beginners and young drivers, almost all countries have a total alcohol ban. In the event of an accident or a violation of the law, these data are considered void because in all cases a drunk driving will be imposed by the authorities with the imposition of a severe fine.
