Tips for Cathay Pacific Airways Passengers Renting Cars
Cathay Pacific car rentals include free booking amendments, unlimited mileage, one additional driver, basic roadside assistance, and Collision/Loss Damage Waiver (CDW/LDW).
Travelers to China and Hong Kong can rest assured that the car hire GPS has maps and navigation in Mandarin and English.
You must be 25 years old to rent a car with Cathay Pacific and a car rental provider. Exceptions will vary by location and company, but drivers under 25 are almost always subject to an underage surcharge and a limited selection of vehicles.
Believe it or not, some cars won’t be pre-fitted with GPS, and in fact, in some cities, Cathay Pacific car rentals may not have option to rent GPS — it really depends on the provider. Regardless, your mobile device could easily act as a navigational device, provided you won’t be hit with excessive international roaming charges.
Read the terms and conditions of your car hire agreement like your life depended on it, especially if you want to avoid costly mistakes like returning your car a day or two early, or going off-road with a vehicle that’s only authorized to drive on paved surfaces.
You’ll save money by returning your car hire to the location you rented it from, but one-way costs can be mitigated by saving money on other unnecessary options like duplicate insurance coverage on the Excess Damage Waiver, which is probably covered by your credit card. On the other hand, confirm your travel insurance and check for exclusions before turning down the car provider option.
