Obviously we are talking about travel by plane or bus, where it is not possible to have your own car available for excursions. If you plan to take a holiday in a resort (or to always remain stationary in a structure), the problem does not arise, if instead you like to visit the country where you are on holiday, the ideal solution is car rental. We can therefore state that, after flights and hotels, the most important service for the success of a holiday organized entirely “do it yourself” via the Internet is certainly the rental of a car that allows you to move freely. So let’s see what there is to know about rental, from choosing the best booking sites.
Which car to rent? If there are two of you, the smaller one you find is generally fine, especially if you are in a seaside resort: it will be cheaper and you will have fewer parking problems. If you are traveling as a family or in two couples, consider larger cars, directly a station wagon as with suitcases you will need a lot of space.
More and more used, especially if you have to cover long distances and want to travel comfortably, are minivans: the rental prices are not low, but you will gain space and comfort, especially if you are traveling with small children. SUVs are very expensive to rent, but are an indispensable choice in some locations that involve dirt roads. If you are a large group, instead, renting several cars, consider choosing an eight or twelve-seater minibus: it usually does not cost much more than a normal car and you will also divide the expense among all the participants.
