When you arrive at a new destination by air, there is always the issue of travelling around. You do, of course, have taxi’s for this, but the cost for getting taxi’s everywhere, will certainly mount up and who’s to say, that the taxi driver is going to take you, by the most direct route. Having the option to rent a car when you land at an airport is a great option, and one that you should be thinking about. There are many advantages of renting a car and we will look at some of them here today.
- Save Money – The amount of money you will save by using the car rental at Auckland Airport, will cover other outgoings that you may have. The money saved from not having to pay taxi fares, may allow you to upgrade your room or even to book a hotel, that is in a better location. Having to pay a taxi to take you everywhere just doesn’t make any sense, when you can hire a car at the local airport, for a very reasonable and affordable price.
- Take It All In – When you come to a new destination, you really want to have a good look around and take in all that area has to offer. The rivers, the mountains and the lakes are all there for you, but you won’t get to see them all properly in the back of a taxi. If you want to stop and spend a little time there, you probably can in a taxi, but for every minute that you are standing there enjoying all there is to look at, it is costing you money.
- All Part Of The Fun – Sometimes, things don’t just go to plan and you may get a little bit lost. Most rental cars have satnav installed, but sometimes where you end up may not be on the map. Now, some might say that this is a bad thing, but it really isn’t. Getting a little lost, is all part of the fun of going on vacation and renting a car. You get to see places that were not on your itinerary, and you will always find your way back, to where you wanted to go in the first place. This is something you and your family can look back on and have a good laugh.
- Hybrid cars are now available to rent at most car rental places and this can offer you additional savings. A lot of cities, now offer free parking for hybrid cars by rewarding people for choosing the greener option. Also, most rental cars are quite new or are serviced on a very regular basis, and unlike your own car, they most likely will use less petrol and be kinder to the environment. By choosing to rent a car, you are taking a very responsible approach to protecting Mother Nature.
So, the next time you fly into somewhere new, forget about hiring a taxi and get yourself a hire car. It will be reliable, comfortable and clean and will save you a tonne of money, over the duration of your trip. Look into hiring a car the next time you travel, you won’t be disappointed
