Driving through the picturesque landscapes of Seychelles in your rental car is a dream, but a flat tire can be a road bump you didn’t anticipate. Don’t worry! Here’s a quick guide on what to do if you find yourself in this situation with your Kreol Car Rental.
Preparation Is Key
All Kreol rental cars come equipped with a spare tire, a jack, and a wrench for wheel nuts. Before hitting the road, take a moment to ensure these essentials are in place. Familiarise yourself with the car’s jacking points and, just to be thorough, confirm that the car is in gear, and the handbrake is up.
Immediate Response if Driving
If you experience a flat while driving, keep calm. Lift your foot off the gas, which will give you better control. Remember to avoid sudden braking, which can lead to uneven vehicle pull. Safely pull over to the side of the road, away from traffic. Turn on your hazard lights to alert other drivers.
Use Your Resources
Before you begin your journey, make sure that you have essential numbers on your phone in case of emergencies. Have the contact details of the company or roadside assistance on your phone. Many independent car rental companies, including Kreol Car Rental, offer roadside assistance – inquire about their services and potential fees before you hit the road.
DIY – Can You Fix it?
If you feel comfortable changing a flat tire, many rental cars, including SUVs, cars, or vans from Kreol, are equipped with a spare tire and a repair kit. Consult the car’s owner’s manual for the spare tire’s location and instructions on changing it.
Kreol’s Roadside Assistance
For added peace of mind, Kreol Car Rental offers 24/7 roadside assistance at a reasonable fee of 8 Euros. With this plan, clients may be able to avoid a base call-out fee and additional charges per kilometre travelled to and from the breakdown. Ensure your insurance package covers services like roadside assistance before embarking on your journey.
Remember, only Kreol Services is authorised to sanction the towing of the rented vehicle. Stay prepared, drive safely, and enjoy the beauty of Seychelles hassle-free with Kreol Car Rental services. For more information contact us. We’d happily assist.Share This Post
