Dangers of a Hot Car Hire


With travelers from all over the world renting cars in sunny locations for summer fun it is a good time to remind everyone of the dangers of a hot car.  Whether or not you're lucky enough to live in a place where the sun shines, you might not be prepared for what can happen inside your car rental when parked at your favorite beach location.  Although this video is positively ridiculous, this is an excellent explanation of why your car rental gets so hot.
