Did you ever wonder why you hate travelling cross-country with your family? Perhaps, you haven’t thought about it, but probably the reason is that you have always been the designated driver on all of your trips.
In reality, you want to see the sites around the country because they are really amazing. It’s the driving that you really hate, because you can’t enjoy the sites and you are also too tired after reaching your destination.
Haven’t you thought of renting a car? That would definitely solve your problem. Now you know why some people choose to rent a car. But this is only one reason. There are many reasons why when travelling, renting a car is much better than driving your own car.
Here are ten more reasons why you should contact a rent-a-car service such as Hertz or Enterprise if you plan to go to the other side of the country.
Don’t you know that renting a car is the safest way to travel? Yes it is, because these cars are always well-maintained. It is a government requirement that all car renters should have a standing maintenance and repair crew.
They can’t renew their business licenses if they were caught sleeping on the job. That means, in order to stay in business, they should employ a repair and maintenance crew to ensure that all their cars are safe to drive.
Another important thing you should realize is that: if you rent a car, you are guaranteed to complete your trip, whatever happens to the rent-a-car that you are using.
How is that possible if your rent-a-car suddenly breaks down? Well, you are not considering the fact that the rent-a-car company has a fleet of cars that can be dispatched anywhere and anytime they are needed.
Let’s say your car suffered a break down while you’re half-way to your destination. The car driver will immediately contact his head office, inform them about the problem and the rent-a-car company will dispatch a replacement car pronto! You will be again well on your way to your destination.
3. No Hitches on your schedule
By renting a car, whether for leisure or business, you will have the freedom of going at your own whim. You will not be dependent on cabs, buses, or other forms of public transportation because your car driver is waiting on you – always.
Wouldn’t you like to be comfortable while going on a trip? Then rent a car. Not only will you be able to enjoy the sites, but you can even sleep if you’re already bored and still travel miles upon miles to your destination.
5. Save on Fuel
Renting a car would even save you a good amount of money for fuel. Let’s say your clunker is already an oldie which guzzles gasoline like a thirsty camel. If you use it to get to your destination on the other side of the country, you might probably spend an amount equivalent to its depreciated value. With a rent-a-car, you won’t be spending much because it is already incorporated in the rental fee.
6. Spare your car
Even if you have a new car, it would be unwise to take it on a cross-country tour. That’s a sure way to get its resale value go down dramatically. All of its moving parts will be taxed to the max, because of the long drive that it will be subjected to. Better let the rented car take that kind of punishment.
7. Makes a good impression
If you are entertaining a client or meeting some big guy from your company HQ, it is better to rent a car that is suited to his economic and official status. This is the best way to make an impression. For instance, your guest will be elated and impressed if you use a limousine to get him around.
8. Throw a great party
If you want to throw a party that is unique and will remain in the consciousness of your guests for a long time, renting a party car is your way to go. There are many rental car companies that are offering these kinds of service, so you are not really the first one to do it.
9. When the people are too many for your car
Let’s say you need to take a number of people to some place, and your car simply cannot accommodate them all. You could force it, but woe to your differential, under chassis and suspension. Why not just rent a bigger car?
10. For special trips
If you are planning to go to the beach or to go fishing, or to some outdoor activities, and your new car has just been delivered, you are liable to get it scratched or damaged if you use it to take you to the outdoors. Renting a car or a truck will be a wiser option.
