If you are provided a rental car by your company when you land at your destination, there are safety considerations that you need to be prepared for. This is even more so if you are also driving your colleagues as more lives are at stake.
Here are eight things to look out for when you are going to self-drive on your business trips:
Research your destination.
Learn about speed restrictions, traffic rules and road signs as they vary from one country to another. For your safety, ensure you know about any significant differences in traffic regulations in the country you will be driving in.
Check whether your country’s driving license is acceptable in your destination country or whether you need an international driving license to drive in that country.
Consider the month and season of your travel as weather conditions affect road conditions and visibility. Driving on icy roads is very different from driving on dry roads.
