In for a Thrill – 2017 Car Hire Tips

Excited by expectations of the new year, we dream big and wish to reach high. Have you thought of the summer holidays yet? Where are you heading this year? Now that you need to plan your holiday schedule at work, we present a list of car hire tips for amazing places to visit this year.

Whether you’re after culture or nature, sport or procrastination, the best way to spend a relaxing holiday is to have it planned and well prepared in advance. Make up your mind where you’d like to go and start planning! It will put you in a good mood and make you feel the excitement of travel.

Being mobile gives you all the freedom you would like in your travels and makes it go as smoothly as possible. We’ve gathered some key car hire tips for your holiday.

Think Germany

There is no speed limit on many German motorways, which makes the country the ultimate place to drive a sportscar. You’re going to need a car with a good engine to keep up with the rest of the Germans on the Autobahn (German for motorway), and to make the most of the driving experience! We’d recommend intermediate category or higher, and if you’re in for a thrill, take a look at our luxury fleet with sportscar beauties.

Think USA

Convertible is the word in sunny California. Since there’s no arguing about tastes and colours, we think a red Mustang would be the best for this job! Whatever vehicle you choose for your trip in the USA, or Canada for that matter, consider booking the Gold Rate, with three additional drivers and first tank of fuel included.

Think New Zealand

A campervan is your perfect match for the land of the Lord of the Rings. Drive through the amazing countryside with accommodation and transport in one, with your significant other, family or friends! Stay close to nature in your campervan hire in New Zealand and make the most of your travels in this awe-inspiring place on earth. To make it easier for you, contact our motorhome team to help you choose the best camper for your travel needs.

Think culture in Europe

Go for compact category or smaller vehicles for the ease of parking in big European metropolises. Additionally, these cars will economize on fuel and you’ll have more in your pocket for galleries or drinks. Speaking about the latter, sometimes you might need to share driving responsibilities, so check our additional driver deals and have another person drive the car for free.

Think skiing in the Alps

If you’re thinking of a holiday break in near future such as going to the Alps for skiing, an SUV with winter tyres is the answer. You’ll feel safe and comfortable on the road in a large SUV, with the harsh conditions outside. Additionally, in most European countries where snow tyres are mandatory, local suppliers offer winter tyre deals, so have a look and save on winter car equipment!

Think European seaside resorts

If you’re up for a seaside holiday in Europe, small cars will be your best choice. Depending on the number of travel companions and your luggage, you may like to rent a mini, economy or compact category. As you will spend most of the time soaking up the sun, there’s no need for a spacious vehicle and you’ll save on fuel. What you need to pay attention to in European seaside pick-up locations is fuel and insurance. Although it may seem that full to full fuel policy is more expensive at the first glance, you’ll learn that it’s the cheaper choice in the long run. Last but not least: have your credit card with you for the security deposit to avoid paying extra for local insurance.

One more thing – before you book, be sure to check our free upgrade deals to see if you can have a larger vehicle for less money! Happy 2017 travels!
