Planning your next holiday? Instead of racking up an itinerary of flights, why not grab the car keys and head on a road trip adventure.
"Car or motorhome hire offers you the freedom and flexibility to get off the beaten track and explore the unknown," said Caroline Ashmore, marketing manager from DriveAway.
"It allows you to explore at your own pace, so you can stay as long as you want and get completely lost in your own adventure."
Here are four reasons why you should make your next trip a road trip:
1. It offers you freedom and flexibility
While you might have an itinerary and a list of where you'd like to go on a trip, sometimes it's not until you get there that you discover the true gems of the area.
"Having a car or motorhome at your disposal on your trip gives you the flexibility to change your plans as you please. You never quite know when or where you're going to find your favourite spot - and not having to dash off to catch a plane or a train means you have the freedom to enjoy it," said Caroline.
2. It allows you to pack all the essentials (and add new ones)
Knowing you're going to have to carry your luggage with you everywhere can put a dampener on a trip, and significantly cut down what you end up taking with you. But with self-drive, once you've popped your luggage in the boot, you don't even have to think about it getting from A to B.
And it doesn't matter if you want to add some purchases along the way. After all, there's nothing quite like an exotic purchase or bringing something home to remind you of your trip later on. And it's always nice to spoil friends and family with a present from afar.
3. Big money savings
Hiring a car or motorhome can be very cost effective, especially when you travel as a group. Instead of each paying for individual seats, you can split the cost instead.
4. Hire a motorhome and the benefits increase even more!
Take your accommodation with you wherever you go by hiring a motorhome. It'll not only save you money on accommodation, you will never be stuck for a place to stay or a place to relax, it's all there for you.
"Today's fully equipped motorhomes have plenty of room to stretch out, and lots of storage space for food, clothing, and gear with large, comfortable beds," said Caroline.
"And with a motorhome you have the option of preparing and cooking yourself with the facilities all on board with you, which can save you more money."
