Should I check the condition of the rental car before leaving the rental station?

Yes, you should check that the condition of the rental vehicle is as stated on the contract. If there is obvious damage to the vehicle, which is not stated in the contract, you should inform an employee at the station and ask him to examine the vehicle. Any damage identified can then be noted on the rental agreement. This will help to ensure that there are no problems when you return the vehicle.
