WHY CHOOSE KINGS RENT-A-CAR SERVICE?
At Kings we ONLY operate our own fleet. Here’s why;
Majority of car rental companies re-hire third party vehicles. This can be confirmed by checking the name on the insurance certificate and road tax disc displayed on the window. The risks to this are as follows:
- The vehicle can be up for re-possession if the “actual owner” has not been paying his/her vehicle mortgage. Therefore the user is at the risk of having his/her rental vehicle re-possessed during the rental period causing much inconvenience.
- Insurance coverage may be compromised. Renting without adequate insurance covers, including rent-a-car cover, personal injury cover and even sometimes without comprehensive collision cover can leave the user with unlimited liability in the eventuality of an accident.
- Grand Theft Auto – vehicle theft is on the rise in Sri Lanka, and the added risk of renting a stolen vehicle becomes more probable. The user or even the rental operator may not know that the third party re-rented vehicle might be a stolen one. Thereby the end-user will become legally involved in a criminal activity without his/her knowledge.
Safety and Standards
Re-hired third party vehicles are less likely to have stringent safety checks done before delivery usage. Substandard maintenance, inferior parts and non-professional care all increase the risk of vehicle breakdowns and accidental damages.
Re-hired vehicles are also likely to suffer from poor quality. With its owners and “rental agents” trying to keep costs low and their margins high, they will most likely compromise on the vehicle’s cleanliness and hygiene, maintenance, tire thread and appearance. The lack of professional staff to handle your needs and provide you with a well-maintained vehicle could lead to a substandard service.
All these factors, combined, will only make your travel plans and your much deserved holiday a miserable one, if ever.
Avoid these critical pitfalls and rent with Kings Rent A Car’s fully owned and operated professional car rental fleet, for a professional service that matches international standards.
