Cheap car rental in Lima Peru is an option that, more for the worse than for the better, has become popular among travelers who wish to explore the city and its surroundings independently. The possibility of having a vehicle at your disposal at an affordable price may seem tempting, but what many do not take into account are the great disadvantages or dangers they could incur by trying to save a couple of soles in their pocket. Keep reading this article and you will learn why it is not a good idea to take advantage of this option from Peru Rent a Car. Shall we start?

Disadvantages of cheap car rental in Lima Peru

Let’s start by making something clear, the car rental market is very vast and you will find prices for all tastes and audiences. However, there is one thing you cannot leave aside: the value of the car. Every car is expensive and if you are offered a new one, but with a price well below the current standard, be careful, you could be renting a unit that offers you everything but safety for you and your passengers. These are some of the aspects you should consider before making a decision:

Vehicle condition

Economy cars are often older models or poorly maintained vehicles. This can increase the risk of breakdowns on the road, which can be especially problematic if you are in an unfamiliar place. There are many cases where people are reported to have been stranded in the middle of the night and the bad experience is something that is difficult to overcome.

Limitations in insurance coverage

Similarly, cheap car rental in Lima Peru often offers limited insurance coverage. In the event of an accident, you may have to assume a significant portion of the repair costs. In other words, you will still have to pay more money than you originally planned.

Mileage restrictions

Some economy car rental companies impose daily or weekly mileage limits. If you exceed these limits, you may have to pay additional fees, which could significantly increase the cost of the rental. Also keep in mind that in some cities, finding affordable parking can be difficult.

Lack of amenities

A key aspect that, at least in Peru Rent a Car, we prioritize, is the food of the occupants. Cheap car rentals in Lima Peru often lack modern features found in more expensive models. This can affect comfort and the travel experience, as their sole purpose is to provide a service rather than your comfort, safety and enjoyment as a customer. 

Fuel consumption

Finally, as mentioned in one of the previous points, some economy cars may have less fuel-efficient engines. Although the rental itself may be economical, you could end up spending more on gasoline or, failing that, also on the mileage and insurance of the unit.
