Car rentals in Kolkata

Renting a car is becoming more and more popular with people in the contemporary world. Car rental in Kolkata is a preferred choice among travellers looking to explore this magnificent city. The reason behind this growth is the benefits that are attached to renting a car. If you look at the overall cost of buying a car, including its maintenance, it’s far more expensive than renting one. Also, when you buy a car, it will just depreciate in the coming future, and this further adds to the disadvantages of owning a car, not to forget the high cost of maintenance.

redBus has dominated the travel services space for the last couple of years. It has established itself as the industry leader in the bus services segment. Realizing the importance of rental services around the world, redBus expanded its services beyond just bus hire. They included others such as a minibus for hire, tempo for hire, car rentals, etc. The latest addition in the form of car rental services has been pivotal. The rental economy has seen a boost in the last few years, and more people are likely to hire a car instead of buying one. This is not just a trend but will eventually become a norm given the benefits of renting a car when compared to buying it. 

In the modern digital world, we are so reliant on using technology for our daily chores. Renting a car online using platforms such as redBus further adds to our convenience. When it comes to car rental in Kolkata, you won’t find a better option than redBus. redBus leverages its existing vast transport network to find the best car rental solution for customers in Kolkata. It offers the cheapest car rental rates in Kolkata that you’ll ever see. redBus accommodates both luxury car rentals in Kolkata and general car rentals in Kolkata.

The Coronavirus pandemic has thrown several industries into turmoil with multiple lockdowns happening and being enforced through many parts of India. With lockdown orders and inter and intrastate movement getting relaxed, people are looking at hiring buses for several reasons. From returning to their loved ones back home or getting back to their workplaces, people are slowly moving towards a sense of normality when it comes to travel. And with such booking requests coming in, redBus would like to shed some light on some of the safety measures that bus service providers follow before and after every booking:

Mandatory use of Masks: Passengers and staff are not permitted to enter the bus without using a protective mask. The bus staff and passengers are encouraged to keep their masks at all times during their journey.

Deep cleaning: Buses are subjected to a series of deep cleaning procedures to ensure that every vehicle (Tempo, bus, etc.) is disinfected after every trip.

Temperature Checks: Along with the passengers, every staff member on board undergoes regular temperature checks. The bus staff is checked periodically before every trip as well.

Blankets and Linens: Passengers are advised to carry their blankets and linens as the bus service provider would not provide the same to minimize the spread of COVID-19.

Hand Sanitizers: Every vehicle that's available for hire through redBus comes equipped with hand sanitisers.

Advisories: Along with several notifications that redBus provides its passengers to ensure that they are kept safe, passengers are also requested to stay at home if they exhibit any symptom associated with coronavirus.

The pandemic is something new that we might not have experienced before. And it doesn't look like that pandemic is going to go away anytime soon. You can ensure that you stay safe while also keeping your neighbours' safety in mind.
