For foreigners living in Chengdu, renting a car would be a good idea if they want to have a road trip with their families.
As China does not recognize the International Driver's Permit, foreigners to drive in Chengdu need to get a Chinese driver's license first.
By far the number of foreigners living in Chengdu has reached nearly 20,000, and how do they rent a car in the city?
There are many rental agencies here in the city, and the article, written on the basis of the consultations with the Hongjin Rental in midtown Chengdu, will give people who want to rent a car a reference concerning the related issues.
According to the company, the prices for renting cars generally range from RMB100/day to RMB1,000/day, considering the brands of the desired rentals. Customers have to pay at least RMB5,000 as the deposit. When they return the car, RMB2,000 will be held for another 30 days in case of any possible notifications of traffic violations incurred by the rented cars.
Below are the procedures to rent a car for foreigners:
Step 1: reserve a car
Reservations online or by phone. Tell agency staff what type of a car you prefer, when and where to pick up the car, etc.
