When on holiday without your own car, it will be likely that you’ll face something of a conundrum. Should you rely on public transport to get about, or hire a vehicle to use while you’re enjoying your break? The former will likely be inconvenient and might be pricy, while the latter will also cost money and require you to exert the effort of getting behind the wheel. Then there will be the added bother of driving on foreign roads, if you’re taking a break overseas.
If you opt to go for a hire car, it will be important for you to realise that you will have every right to expect that the car you are given is 100% roadworthy. Anything less just will not do. But while you’ll be able to see anything obvious such as flat tyres or broken tail lights on a car you’re given, you won’t be able to tell if there’s something wrong under the bonnet, so to speak.
A fault on a hire car that is not noticeable simply by looking at the vehicle could have the potential to be very dangerous indeed. In fact, it could even pose a risk of doing you or a member of your party or family an injury in an accident that was not your fault. If this were to happen to you, there would be a chance that you might well have grounds on which to sue the hire car firm that lent you the vehicle in question for an accident at work compensation in North Lincolnshire pay-out.
