A rental car is like purchasing the freedom to have the trip that you want to have. After all, we have only a finite amount of time to experience a near-limitless number of sights and activities, and public transportation is seldom the most efficient means of getting around. You lose a great deal of time planning, organizing, waiting in line and making stops along the way to your different destinations. Not to mention that public transportation can often be unpredictable. If you decide to spring for a rental car, however, you’ll be astounded by how much more you can see and experience. You’ll have the time and convenience needed to get the most out of your adventures. Plus, you’ll always have a place to keep your luggage. It especially makes sense if you’re going with one or two other people as you can divide the cost, though even alone it’s a reasonable expense and money well spent. Simply driving from place to place and stopping to discover something new can feel like part of the adventure itself. You might even say a set of wheels helps to double your vacation.
