If you are a rental car agency owner or manager, handing over the keys to one of your vehicles,
especially a high-priced exotic vehicle to a customer can evoke feelings of uneasiness.
Will the customer treat the rental vehicle with tender loving care or will the customer liken
the rental car to Off Road Vehicle? While you hope the former is the case,
the latter occurring is certainly not out of the question. Well, there is a solution,
and it’s called Telematics GPS tracking.
Common rental car abuse includes the following:
- Harsh Braking
- Excessive engine revving
- Bad driving behavior

Rental car abuse can cause grief for the rental car agency. Brakes may need replaced more often, tires may need changed and the transmission may need to be repaired more than once Rental car agencies now have the ability to track and monitor their rental cars. Installed in rental cars, GPS tracker devices provide for real time rental car fleet tracking.
