Carefully select the pick-up and drop-off time of the vehicle
In addition to choosing the exact date, it is very important to choose the exact time of collection and return of the vehicle. Here are a few main reasons why this is so.
First of all, if you do not pick up the vehicle on time, there is a possibility that it will no longer be available when you pick it up, especially if you rent it during busy tourist season. Of course, with prior delay notice a, your vehicle will be waiting for you at ORYX, but it is best to avoid all potential complications and arrive on time.
Another reason why it is important to choose your pick-up time carefully is unforeseen changes in circumstances and travel arrangement. For example, if you travel by plane to or from Rijeka, it can easily happen that the flight is delayed. In that case, it would be good to include an additional hour or two after the flight and then arrange to pick up the vehicle. So if the flight is delayed or you need a little longer to pick up your luggage and find your way around airport, you can be sure that you will pick up the vehicle on time.
And finally, no one likes additional and unforeseen costs, so carefully choose the time of return of the vehicle in Rijeka, because there is usually a late penalty.
Don't forget the deposit
A deposit has become an almost inevitable item with most large car rental companies. This is the only way companies can protect themselves from potential damage to vehicles caused by careless handling and driving. However, if you are a careful driver and treat your rented vehicle carefully, you will not have to worry about additional costs and damage.
A deposit in the ORYX Rent a car in Rijeka is also required, and payment is only possible by credit card. We reserve the amount of the deposit on your card, and the card must be in your name, i.e. the name of the driver and the rental contractor should be the same.

Be rested and stay hydrated
And now that the car is in your hands, you can enjoy the ride, but always with adequate precautions and safety measures.
Careful driving means respecting all laws, traffic signs and restrictions, and driving in accordance with road conditions. And for careful and safe driving, two things are very important - rest and hydration.
There is a lot of talk about the importance of rest and how you should never get behind the wheel tired. This is really key to safe driving and drivers need to constantly emphasize the importance of rest. But what is not mentioned often is the risk of dehydration.
Namely, American research has shown that drivers who drink sufficient amounts of fluids are more careful, clearer-minded, react in a timely manner and make fewer driving mistakes. Believe it or not, it has been shown that driving in a dehydrated state can sometimes be almost as dangerous as driving under the influence of alcohol!
Therefore, when driving, make sure you are getting enough fluids. And when you go on a long journey, it is important to have a bottle of water with you.
