A Guide For Choosing A Car Rental

Published

on

Afridi Rent a Car islamabad

When you go on vacation, you seek ways that you can choose a car rental company that can hook you up with a car to drive. Let’s have a look at how to get the most out of your next car rental. Granted, you could hire a taxi in another country, but this will cost you more than if you rented a car.

Use a Credit Card

After you arrive, the Gold Coast Airport Car Rental will most likely prefer that you use a credit card. You don’t have to use a credit card, but they prefer this to other choices. If you don’t use a credit card, the company will look at your credit score to see that you can afford the charges. They could approve or deny you based on this. With a credit card, you don’t have to worry about it. The company doesn’t do a credit check when you pay through the credit card. You can read more on credit sesame reviews to to see what is best for you. 

Choose Green Carefully

When you go to select a car from a rental company, you have to understand how not every company will tell you the truth about the greenness of its vehicles. For that reason, you should do research of your own to understand how to best proceed. Look at the cars in each category because the car being lauded as green may not be the best choice. 

Plan for the Size of Your Group

American cars tend to offer more space than if you were to rent a European car. Be careful of the compact that you choose in European make because it may not fit the whole party. Along with the size of your group, you also have to look at the amount of luggage that you will carry.

Bigger Doesn’t Mean Better

Bigger cars consume more fuel, and they have greater difficulty with maneuvering. As a rental, you may want to pick out a mid-size rental. You don’t want too big of a car, but at the same time, you don’t want too small of one either. For that reason, you may find it beneficial to go with a mid-sized vehicle. They get better fuel economy, and they don’t cost as much to rent as the bigger cars.

Local: Better?

You can find plenty of international car rental companies available, but you will find that the local ones tend to offer you a more attractive price. That doesn’t mean that you will get a better deal in all cases, but you can usually get a lower price with some of the local companies. This depends on where you plan to travel. Read the reviews of the company before you book with them.

How to Get a Better Deal

Some programs will offer you a better deal. You have frequent flier programs and credit card rewards programs that can help you to take advantage of better deals. Many credit card companies will even offer you greater rewards for using a car rental company. Another way to get a better deal is to check through your company. For example, if you happen to work with a company that rents cars often, you might be able to use this as a way to get a better deal on car rentals. You could also join the loyalty program of your rental car company to get a better deal.

One-Way Car Rentals

You should understand how one-way car rentals tend to cost more than regular rentals. The drop-off fees can grow astronomical over round-trip rentals, and you want to be aware of this in advance to avoid problems with it.

Choosing a car rental does take careful consideration. If you have kids below age 25 and they will drive the car, you could be charged more. Unfortunately, no matter how good your kid drives a car, the rental companies treat them all as the same. Understanding these things can help you to have a better experience when you go to rent a car. It ensures that you avoid some of the potentially negative things that can happen during a car rental. You want to have the best experience possible.

CIMG Launches 33rd Annual National Marketing Performance Awards

DR KASSER TEE

The Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana (CIMG), has launched the 33rd CIMG Annual National Marketing Performance Awards, which was held at the Coconut Grove Hotel in Accra. The event took a hybrid form with virtual and in-person attendees.

 

In his welcome address, the Registrar of the CIMG, Mr. Kwabena Agyekum said, “The success of these awards has gone beyond the event itself. Many businesses have now redeveloped their corporate strategies and significantly changed their business operating models, enabling them to be marketing-oriented by meeting the key requirements of market focus, integrated marketing, long term profitability, and customer and competitor orientation.”

 

In his opening remarks, the National Vice-President of CIMG and Chairman of the Awards Planning and Selection Committee, Mr. Theodore Osae, lauded the CIMG for its historic accomplishments in previous awards ceremonies.

“There is no denying that the scheme has incredibly evolved into what could be considered Ghana’s benchmark awards scheme. As we take delight in the successes achieved by our awards, I wish to boldly say that the CIMG takes pride in the several landmark accomplishments, which have greatly contributed towards improvements in organisational and professional performances, and especially, for practicing Marketers,” Mr. Osae said.

 

Being mindful of these achievements, the Institute has resolved to keep the stakes as high and as relevant as possible so that the standards, by which CIMG assesses individual and corporate performances, are not compromised.

 

The institute, for the past few years, has adopted the online system of completing the awards questionnaire by nominees as well as online assessment for the judges, who are chosen from various sectors of the corporate world. This set up has made it easy for CIMG to continue to drive a rigorous process whilst maintaining its stringent standards.

 

The Awards cover six major competitive areas, namely: Hall of Fame, Personality, Media and Marketing Communications organisations, Business organisations, Products, and Not-for-Profit organisations.

 

There is a non-competitive award category known as the CIMG President’s Special awards which are given to noticeable female and male achievers in any endeavour, or a business entity or product or service that has positively contributed to national progress.

 

Mr Osae indicated that “the judges and assessors for the year’s event will devote time and attention to ensure the success of the 33rd CIMG Awards, as it represents Ghana’s benchmark awards ceremony.”

 

The criteria for selecting the winners and benchmarking their performance will include:

  1. Marketing Metrics including awareness, numeric distribution (where appropriate) and others
  2. Marketing Innovation

III.       Technological Innovation

  1. Segmentation, Targeting and Positioning (STP)
  2. Social Impact
  3. Contribution to National Development

VII.      Public Image

VIII.     Success in the Market Place

  1. Market Share
  2. Customer Service Orientation
  3. Ecological and Ethical Issues

XII.      Competitor Orientation

 

Launching the awards ceremony, the National President of CIMG, Dr. Kasser Tee, urged organisations “to refrain from cutting marketing budgets in hard times, as effective deployment of marketing communications is necessary for stimulating demand for their products.”

 

Dr. Kasser Tee added that organisations must re-examine their marketing mix elements and ensure an optimal blend for organisational success. He explains that “in the same way that you cannot do without products, or pricing, or distribution, so must you not cut promotion or marketing communications budget. You must however spend in critical areas, using the most critical, influential and most cost-effective media vehicles. You must differentiate your corporate and product brands to enable them stand out in the midst of intense competition and low consumption.”

 

He further encouraged all corporate organisations “to pay attention to some of the very key pillars of marketing that guarantee effective performance, by way of growing market shares, revenues and profits in these difficult times.”

 

For 32 years, CIMG has consistently held the Annual National Marketing Performance Awards with the upcoming one being the 33rd edition
