Following a number of countries easing their lockdown rules and getting almost back to 'normal', here at DiscoverCars.com
we wanted to find out what car rental providers are doing in order to keep their customers safe.
For that reason, we have surveyed almost 400 of our partner companies and observed a reassuring increase in the provision of Covid-19 safety measures
Over three-quarters (84 percent) of the car rental firms polled said that they carry out specialist sanitation on each of their cars across all locations to protect the wellbeing of their customers.
Furthermore, over one-fifth (27 percent) of companies offer additional Covid-19 protection such as antibacterial gel and wipes, or face masks and gloves for customers in their cars completely free of charge.
Gel — 60%
Mask — 46%
Wipes — 17%
Gloves — 10%
Meanwhile, 12 percent provide them at an extra cost.
The car rental providers went on to share that they sanitize and disinfect the whole car, from the steering wheel to ventilation or radio systems. They also take steps to follow social distancing rules in their shops. They go on to sanitize and cover steering wheels and seats in plastic while car keys are given to customers in plastic bags.
