The Benefits of Car Hire Abroad

Driving your car abroad may seem like an extremely easy way to see everything you want to see and award you the opportunity to go off on a whim to brand new places and explore hidden, remote treats you might otherwise have missed.

However, there are certain implications when driving your own car that must not be overlooked. Firstly, you must ensure your insurance policy covers you for travel abroad. Many people overlook this and find themselves with huge fines when discovered. Also, most policies only cover you third-party meaning that if you have an accident you will be left to pick up a rather large, holiday-ruining bill. If the car needs to be recovered, you need to ensure you have the correct recovery insurance to be towed back to the UK.

These few facts alone, not to mention the initial costs of getting to and from your destination, mean that for those who want to roam abroad, car hire is almost always a better option. Cheap car hire can cut costs as well as the massive headaches should something go wrong. With differing road laws abroad, car hire in Spain for instance will also give you the spare tyre, fan belt, bulbs and tool kit you may not have even realised you legally need. Car hire in France will furnish you with the regulatory fire extinguisher, first aid kit and emergency triangle. So by choosing to rent, you are not only saving money, but you are also staying safe.
