Renting a Car – Interactive English Lesson

Renting a Car – Interactive English Lesson


Welcome to twominuteenglish.com. Teaching you English through two-minute lessons.
In this lesson we will listen to some people renting a car. Hello there. I need to rent a car. Hi! What size are you thinking? Well, err…this is my first rental. What sizes do you have? We have compact, medium, and full size, the compact being the cheapest. I’m traveling with my wife and little daughter, so a
compact will be fine. What are your daily rates? For the compact, it’s $29,90 per day, but if you’re renting it
for more than seven days, you get a price break. Not bad! I’m going to rent it for 10 days. In that case, you’ll be paying $19,90 per day. Wow! That’s a great discount! I’ll take the compact, then. Good choice. May I see your driver’s license and a credit card, please? Ok, Mr. Patterson, let’s see…will your wife also drive the car? Yes. Since we’re going to Boston for my brother’s wedding, we’ll take turns driving. By the way, can I return the car there, or are there extra charges? There are no extra charges for that. Where
will you return the car in Boston? At the Boston airport. Very good, Mr. Patterson. You’re all set. Have a safe trip. Oh! What about the mileage? There is no extra charge for miles, but you must return the car with
a full tank of gas, or else they’ll charge you for that. Fair enough. Thanks for your help. Hello, is it Time Travels? Yes. This is Beth, how can I help you? I would like to rent a car to take me
to the Hotel Shangri-La from Las Vegas airport. Sure. May I know your name and your schedule please? It’s Suzie Thatcher. I’ll need it at 12 noon
today, and I prefer a white limousine. That’s not a problem, Ms. Thatcher. The driver will be
holding a sign with your name on it. Very good. How much is the rental? Our rates are $45,00 an hour. Okay, that’s fine. In case of delays, or any problem, please
call us at this number, Ms. Thatcher. All right. Thanks for your help. Hello. I’d like to rent a limo to take me to the Hotel Shangri-La. We have the Luxury Sedan, for 1-4 passengers, and
the Stretch Limousine, which fits 1-8 passengers. Ok. I’ll go with the Luxury Sedan. What are your rates? Well, they’re based on a three-hour rental. The luxury
Sedan goes for $55,00 per hour, plus gratuity. I just need it to drop me off at the Shangri-La, at Echelon Place. That won’t be a problem. Will it take long? It will just take a moment for the driver to bring the
car around. You can have a seat, if you like. Thank you. Hello there. I need to rent a car. What sizes do you have? What are your daily rates? Can I return the car there, or are there extra charges?

  2. Nice idea mixing British and American English. But a few errors in the subtitles (example: at 1:13 – "… were there be extra charges?" should be "… will there be extra charges?"

  3. Aroma offers wide variety of cars which will satisfy and approved by renters. One of this is mini car for easier and convenient driving. These cars offer better maneuverability and easier parking. Better fuel efficiency, and fewer resources used in production make them environmentally friendly.
