No matter how good a driver you are, a traffic accident can happen at any moment.
Whether you're driving a car, a motorcycle, a bike or even walking, you never know when or where you'll be involved in an accident.
While there are measures you can take to prevent accidents -such as driving responsibly and giving the car proper maintenance-, the risks on road can't be hardly reduced to a 100% level.
Accidents simply happen, and it's something we can't control. What we can control, however, is how we react and what actions we take when an accident occurs.
In this article, we'll discuss what to do if you have an accident in a Toyota Rent a Car rental vehicle.
What to do in case of other road incidents?
Flat tire: It may have been intentionally caused, so we recommend not stopping in lonely or dark places to change the tire. If you do, lock the vehicle and do not accept help from strangers.
Traffic ticket: You must report and pay the fine at our office when returning the vehicle. Do not pay any money to traffic officers or let them retain your passport.
Car breakdown: If possible, drive to a gas station or public parking spot. Call our toll-free number 800-123RENT (800-123-7368) immediately. If the problem prevents you from continuing, turn on the emergency lights, put on the reflective vest, and place the triangles.
