Currently in Australia you can hire a car during the corona virus outbreak.This may change and Australia may follow the lead from New Zealand banning recreational car hire.
What are hire companies doing to make car hire safe?.In Australia companies like Hertz ,Europcar ,Budget ,Alamo ,and Avis have very rigid standard cleaning regimes to ensure the safety of the clients pre COVID-19 .They are at the moment observing all national and international measures to minimise the spread of the virus.
What does this mean?
In addition to our standard cleaning service, we are disinfecting the following hard surfaces:
- Door handles (inside and out)
- Steering wheel
- Key area
- Seat belt fittings/clips
- Entire console area
- Using fine mist with disinfectant to reach into areas that can not be accessed.
Any hard surface areas previously cleaned will now be cleaned with disinfectant.In addition to this,when you enter a car hire premises public and back office areas are been disaffected to ensure the safety of their staff and customers.These areas include counters ,keyboards,door handles ,kitchens ,toilets and any area that will be accessed by people.
