There are plenty of places to visit in London, but if you want a little more, get out of the city and visit those small towns out there. Brighton, Portsmouth, Windsor, and Oxford, are some of the favorite destinations for road trips. And your experience can be taken a notch higher if you bring a Jeep along.

The Renegade, for example, is the perfect ride for a family road trip. It comes with a 1.4 L or 2.4 L engine that translates to better fuel economy than most SUVs in its class. And there’s enough room for several medium sized bags, and it boasts an impressive towing capability.

But generally, here are some things to consider before hiring a car.

How far do you intend to travel?

Failing to plan is planning to fail. So, you need to know how much ground you’ll be covering during the entire trip. That will give you a rough estimate on how much fuel the Renegade will need. And it will also help you avoid the nasty surprises that come with exceeding the predetermined mileage limit.

Do you need to cross the border?

The rule of thumb with rentals is that you can’t leave the country. And it is virtually impossible to cheat this system. Jeep-I uses state-of-art GPS systems to locate all vehicles, the same way you use it to find your way around. So, there is a 95% chance you’ll get busted.

Are you 25 or above?

Let’s face it; most agencies avoid giving young people their luxury cars. For the simple reason that they might do something crazy – just for the heck of it. Though reasons may differ from one agency to another, experienced people have a better chance of getting their requests accepted. Other than that, it is relatively easy to rent a car, all you need is a driving license, a valid passport, and some cash.
