Up the fun-factor with a hired car

Hiring a car when on holiday is incredibly common, but it’s not the only scenario in which you may want to rent a vehicle.

Not only can you enjoy the flexibility that not having to rely on public transport brings, for example, but you could also mark a special occasion by upping the style stakes!

So when might you want to think about rental services, and is there anything else you’ll need to consider? We have the guidance you need.

1. Road Trippin’Road trip hire car

An escape to the seaside or to see some of Britain’s picturesque countryside or stunning attractions? What better way to do it than hire a car and set off on an adventure?

Using a hire vehicle might also be a more cost-effective alternative, especially if there’s a large group of you going.

Cornwall, the Lake District, the Norfolk Broads or the Brecon Beacons are just a handful of the locations you may want to visit. 

2. Wedding day cruising

There’s no bigger day than your wedding day, so why arrive and leave in style? From high-end sports cars to lavish BMWs, limousines and cool classics, you’re sure to find a vehicle to make your special day even more spectacular.

You may even want to have a hire car that matches your colour scheme, or that really accentuates the dress when getting in and out.

3. Getting off the beaten track

If you have a hire car when you venture off on holiday, you may also want to get away from your resort and explore more of your surroundings.

You’ll need to plan ahead if you do intend to do this, as you’ll need your licence and possibly a permit depending on where you are. If it’s your first time, check out our advice for driving in a different country and be fully prepared to discover the best of what the world has to offer.

4. Soaking up City Life

Getting around a big city is relatively easy in the UK, as most have excellent public transport services. But those services are not always the answer, which is when a hire vehicle can come in handy.

Providing a short-term solution, a hire car is ideal for any long errands or trips where using trains or buses is simply not practical or cost-effective.

With such a huge range of vehicles available from the majority of car hire firms, you should also be able to find a type or model that best suits your needs.

 

If you do intend to hire a vehicle, you may also want to consider car hire excess insurance to protect you against the excess you would need to pay should your vehicle be damaged or stolen.

The added extra costs less than you might think – get a quote today to find out.
