How to choose the right car rental in winter

How to choose the right car rental in winter

Winter has come — a beautiful and magical time of the year. And who said that the cold months should be spent at home, huddled under the covers? Many places in our country are ready to give new impressions, amaze with mesmerizing winter landscapes and charge with positive. Even if you do not have your own car or it is not suitable for winter roads, contact a reliable car rental and go to ski resorts, thermal springs, attend ethno-holidays or arrange atmospheric excursions along the streets of ancient cities and castles.

However, do not lose sight of the harsh reality: cold, ice-covered roads and snowdrifts. We will tell you how to choose a car that will make your winter travel as comfortable and safe as possible.

I see the goal

Ukraine is beautiful at any time of the year, but winter adds a special charm and flavor to the landscapes. The car will give you the opportunity to see many more new and interesting places in a short time and make your weekend unforgettable. For travel, it is better to choose a car for rent, because:

  • you can choose a model with the required trunk volume (for example, for a tent, skis or snowboards);
  • choose a car for a large company (as an option, a minivan), if your own is designed for a small number of passengers;
  • no need to hunt for train tickets and huddle in cramped carriages. IN NarsCars both early booking and daily rent are possible.

Even if you do not plan to travel outside your city, car rental will come to your rescue in a variety of situations.

Car selection criteria

Experienced drivers shared with us what to look for when choosing a vehicle for the winter. The general criteria are: large, wide winter tires, high ground clearance, all-wheel drive, ABS. Besides:

  • engine type (diesel, gasoline, electro) & mdash; it was previously believed that diesel fuel loses to gasoline when started in cold weather. But modern engines, provided that the winter version of the fuel is poured into the gas tank, are in no way inferior to the gasoline counterparts. The only models that are not quite suitable for the cold season due to low efficiency & mdash; electric cars;
  • car class & mdash; first of all, these are all-wheel drive crossovers and SUVs, but they are not quite suitable for moving along city streets littered with snowdrifts. It is better to drive around the city in a station wagon or hatchback with ABS;
  • rubber quality & mdash; winter tires are made of a softer material specifically to increase traction on snowy or icy road surfaces. They will help you stop or turn in time on a slippery road, thereby ensuring your safety;
  • gearbox & mdash; we can rent a car with a manual or automatic transmission. The choice depends on the personal preference of the renter, but the mechanics for this time of year are considered more efficient and reliable.

Survival kit

Despite the fact that NarsCars changes cars on time, takes care of the availability of winter fuel and all the necessary things, there are a number of things that a prudent renter should worry about, especially before a long trip. So, for a comfortable and safe trip, you should stock up on:

  • starting-charger or wires for lighting;
  • defrost locks;
  • towing rope;
  • a supply of liquid for windscreen washers;
  • car shovel;
  • brush with scraper;
  • an emergency stop sign;
  • a basic set of tools and a powerful flashlight.

If forecasters warn of difficult weather conditions, and you do not want to cancel your trip, put snow chains in the trunk.
