Each Friday, we feature a reader-submitted tip as our Travel Tip of the Day. This week’s tip comes from reader Rick S. of Pickerington, Ohio, who says:
“Frequent travelers are often frequent car renters. Chances are you will not be familiar with all the ‘bells and whistles’ or lack thereof on your rental vehicle. I was so used to the auto-off function of my own car’s headlights that I forgot to turn them off on my rental car. Car lights eventually go off by themselves anyway, as I found out, when the battery dies. Luckily, I was in a casino parking lot with frequent security patrols. They gave me a jump and I was on my way. They said this is almost a daily occurrence, so be forewarned.”
A great reminder. Thanks, Rick!
