Why Car Hire Is Better Than Public Transport, Taxis Or A Coach Tour

When on holiday at a particular resort we will always want to take that trip out to see a famous landmark or tourist attraction. The question is whether to hire a car, take a coach tour, or avail of public transport (if there is any!) that will whisk us away to see those in demand tourist sights.

Without a doubt availing of a hired car is the very best option. Read on and we will tell you why…

Firstly, car hire allows you to be flexible and independent in your travel. You can go wherever you wish, and at a time that suits you! And what’s more, if you come across a beautiful spot that you can take a great video clip or photo of, you can stop off without a care in the world, enjoy the attraction, take your time there, and get make the most of that photo session!

Hiring a car is a one off payment, and you know the exact price before you head off on your vacation. You factor that into your holiday budget and away you go. Nowadays there are so many rental companies out there offering cheap car hire so you have plenty of choice in availing of a quality car rental deal!

If you have children then you will know that travelling during a holiday can sometimes be stressful and unsettling for the little ones. Car hire solves all this. You can stop and start whenever you want, and with the presence of child restraints and booster seats you will have total peace of mind that travelling with kids in a hired car is completely safe. You can provide entertainment on board in the form of DVD players, music or making up your own games between yourselves!

To this end, choose your own musical soundtrack by CD or using your plugged in mp3/ipod player for your very own road trip. And you can select a DVD for the DVD player to keep the kids entertained in the back seats!

Entering into a car hire agreement for your holiday is so much better and straightforward. And better for your wallet! In these days of recession, people are looking for a better deal all the time, and car hire often works out cheaper than public transport, especially when you are travelling from attraction to attraction or resort to resort at your own pace, and as well the cost of the car is shared. You can book in advance and make the most of any special car rental offers that come on board.

You are not stuck to rigid public transport timetables, and by hiring a car you will not be hanging around at a bus or train station waiting for a connection.

Taxis and independent coach hire companies can be very expensive, and would love nothing more than to fleece the innocent and attraction-seeking tourist!

Hiring a car can help you get to more attractions in less time, if you take the easiest and quickest route. With a bit of forward planning, the use of GPS and a good roadmap, you will come across the very best attractions near your holiday destination!

Even if you are not planning on doing too much driving around throughout your holiday, hiring a car at your arrival airport can offer you so many benefits. Not only will you avoid having to pay an outrageous taxi fare for your arrival and return journey to your holiday resort, it is very convenient if you have an early morning return flight and you have plenty of baggage to get to the terminal!

So the travel advice we recommend to you is  – shop around and get the very best car rental deal that offers you exactly what you want.
