Rent a car in Belgrade? In the sea of car rental agencies, you need to find the right one. How to choose a specific car rental agency? Should the rental price be the most important criterion when looking to rent a car in Belgrade? Do you that most rental car agencies in Serbia own vehicles that are older than 5 years?
Rent a car service in Belgrade
If you carefully search all available results on the Internet, i.e. Google search, you will realize that the price range for car rental services is really high. For example, you will see that prices vary from 12 to 40 euros for the same model and type of vehicle.
Why such a big difference between the lowest and the highest price for renting a car and vehicle in Belgrade? Rent a car agencies in Belgrade differ a lot in the way they operate. Many car rental agencies in Serbia operate as follows:
- car rental agencies own vehicles that are older than 5 years, and very often they are even ten years old. Although the law in Serbia stipulates that rental car vehicles must not be older than 5 years, at least 70% of agencies in Serbia have vehicles older than 10 years in their rental car fleet;
- at least 50% of agencies in Serbia do not have fully insured vehicles. If you rent a car or other vehicle in such agencies, in case of any kind of damage to the vehicle, the rent a car agency will demand from you the full amount for the damage to the vehicle;
- many car rental agencies in Serbia even allow employed workers to rent their private vehicles to clients. The client comes to the car rental agency where the employee of the company has the "green light" to rent him his private car, which is usually older than 10 years. Although it falls into the "believe it or not" category, this incredible type of business of car rental agencies in Belgrade and Serbia really works.
When you sum up all of the above, it will be clear to you that a so-called "wild" rent a car agency that owns vehicles older than five years, does not have insurance for potential damages of car rental vehicles, and the money you give for rent is probably not reported to the tax administration - these rent car rental agencies could offer you very low prices for daily rentals of vehicles.
Okay, now you know why the prices for renting a car in some car rental agencies are quite low compared to the competition. It is very rare that serious car rental agencies that have new fully insured vehicles and that pay taxes to the state can offer you low prices for car rental.
Possible risks if you rent a car in "wild" car rental agencies
There is a whole series of risks that you take on if you want to rent a vehicle at cheap prices in the rent a car agencies whose business we have described above. The key risks are reflected in the following facts:
- the risk of a traffic accident due to driving a technically defective and unsafe vehicle;
- the risk of paying damages because the vehicle is not insured;
- risk of vehicle breakdown and vehicle stoppage;
- the risk of renting a vehicle with old retreaded tires;
- the risk of renting a vehicle with inadequate tires for a certain part of the year;
- the risk of renting a vehicle that is not part of the car rental fleet, but the private property of the agency's employees;
- the risk that the reserved vehicle will not be available to you on the day of the reservation;
Many of the "cheap" rent a car agencies "rent vehicles at a price of 10 euros per day". It is simply unbelievable how anyone can fall for such a story and believe that it is possible to rent a vehicle at such a low price.
Unfortunately, the fact is that a part of people believes in such promotional tricks, or if we want to properly call this type of business - these are scams. Why is renting a car at a price of 10 euros per day a scam?
If you have ever bought a car of a lower class and size on a lease, then you know that the average monthly lease payment is from 220 to 350 euros.
Let's take for example the lowest monthly installment of 220 euros for the payment of a lease for a smaller vehicle of a lower class. When you add to this work the costs of maintenance, insurance, and vehicle registration, as well as current business costs (leasing space, salaries, paying taxes, etc.), you will understand that the monthly business costs for one smaller, lower-class vehicle will be around 300 euros.
Why would any rent a car agency rent a small, low-class vehicle at a price of 10 euros per day, if the vehicle is new, fully insured, and technically well-maintained and if the monthly costs for its maintenance are around 300 euros? Why would any car rental agency want to rent a vehicle at a price that does not even cover the basic monthly maintenance costs of the vehicle?
There are cases in which large car rental agencies in periods when there are no business rent vehicles at prices that only cover the basic costs of business, but such cases are increasingly rare in the Serbian and world markets.
