Points to check - Self Drive Rental


Armchair Traveller :(

I've booked Mercedes CLA in Mumbai from Zoom cars. I wish to know what all should I check before I take delivery of the car to avoid wrong charges at the time of returning the car.



Full Use Else Lose
Look for:

Free KMs (and charges beyond that limit)
Fuel charges (usually on customer, but do check it with them)
Charges for home/spot delivery
Overall condition of car from outside (for scratches and dents) and inside (for broken accessories, torn/messy upholstery)
Time taken to refund the security deposit
Finally, the penalty if you are late in returning the car on time.

Take a 360 degree video of the interiors as well as exterior of the car, making a point to document any damage or scratch. Person delivering your vehicle needs to mention damages in the contract form as well. Kilometers too will be mentioned.
