5 Reasons Why Renting a Car is Perfect for A Family Trip

Vacations can be fun, but they can also be stressful, especially when you’re unsure of how are you are going to reach your destination. If you’ve decided on taking family trip, whether you’re from California or just visiting, spending time together with your family is probably the most important part. So why not maximize your time by spending it together in a rental? We’ve gathered up five reasons why we believe renting cars the best option for a San Diego vacation!

Save Your Money for Souvenirs

Believe it or not, renting a vehicle is often cheaper than other options when it comes to travel. These days, when you’re in a new place you most likely splurge on Ubers or Lyfts. These can be great options, but their prices are often unpredictable and can change depending on the weather and traffic.  For you know it you could end up spending half your vacation money just on transportation. When all is said and done, renting a car often means you’re only paying the vehicle rental price, insurance and gas at your own rate. Rather than spend $30 every ride multiple time a day, you can spend $30 for a whole day’s worth of trips in your rental.

Precious Privacy

While taking a cab, bus, or any other shared transport can be a great way to meet new people, more often than not you’re probably looking to enjoy some peace in the car. A rental means no strangers, so you have the option to talk or enjoy the quiet whenever you want without any awkwardness. It also means that you don’t have to worry about your safety around unfamiliar people, especially if you’re travelling solo or have kids.

Turn The AC Up! (Or down)

Travelling in a rental means that you get to be the one who decides everything, from the make and model of  your vehicle, to  the music and temperature. No more sitting through songs you hate, or feeling nauseous in the back of a hot  Uber. Instead, you’re in control and can truly enjoy yourself knowing you have taken care of the little things just the way you  like them.

No Plan, No Problem

you’re able to travel anywhere you want with as many unforeseen, interesting stops along the way as you want. You can choose to stop for ice cream right as you see a shop, change routes last minute, and avoid traffic altogether when you’re the  one calling the  shots.

Convince is Key

Oh no! You forgot to pack a toothbrush, but it’s already past 8, and you know transport is going to be pretty pricey this time of night. No worries, because you rented a vehicle and are able to drive 10 minutes to the store and back without the hassle of waiting for a driver and paying a fee. The convenience of  a rental cannot be overstated, especially when you’re working with a company like SD Cruising Rentals.
