When it comes to renting vehicles, you are not limited to the type of car that is available to you. If you are in the mood to rent a luxury car, like a Lamborghini Gallardo, you can certainly feel free. With that said, here are a few things to keep in mind before you head to a rental agency.

Always do a little comparison shopping before signing on the dotted line. Rental prices are not universal, which means that people can charge you whatever they like. If you rush and sign a contract with one company before considering others, it means that you may end up paying more than necessary. You should compare rates at 4-5 different place before making your final decision.

Make sure there is some indication that the vehicles you have viewed are the ones the agency actually has on hand. It is common for people to show off pictures of certain vehicles then they offer something else when customers arrive to pick them up. You should expect that the color of the available cars may be a bit different in some cases, but you should not be given an entirely different make and model. In the event that you are, insist on a discount, especially if you are offered a car that is not as luxurious.

Set aside more money than usual to pay for fuel. The Gallardo gets about 14 mpg (20 on the highway). You cannot expect to rent a vehicle of this class and pay as much for gas as you would when you drive your trusty old sedan. Many people are not prepared for the difference and they don’t make financial plans ahead of time. As a result, they end up renting a car that they cannot afford to fill up. Do your best to be far more proactive than that.

Keep in mind that older models have a manual transmission. If you have no idea how to operate a vehicle that is not automatic, it means that you will have to select a newer vehicle that has an E-Gear transmission (this is semi-automatic) or you will have to scrap your plans of getting a Gallardo and opt for something else. For those who are well-versed in driving stick, you should not have a problem and can feel free to proceed.

Be flexible when it comes to renting the vehicle you want. As you were told earlier, sometimes you book a car ahead of time and it is not available when you arrive at the rental agency. This is due to overbooking in many cases. The same vehicles are promised to multiple people in the event that there is a cancellation. As long as you are offered another car, you should try to be a little open-minded. Don’t immediately assume that the company is trying to run a scam.

This may seem like a great deal of information to digest when renting a Lamborghini, but you will not regret taking the time to read it. Now you will be prepared when the time comes for you to seal the deal.
