Driving and Discovery: Gap Year Freedom

Filed under: Car hire in South Africa — Tags: , , — admin @ 11:40 am January 12, 2011

Taking a gap year is something growing numbers of undergraduate students are attracted to each year. Whilst a number use the time to relax at home (perhaps getting really good at Sudoku or establishing a world-class Battlefield 2142 online gaming clan!), most gap year fanatics head off to foreign parts for a first taste of freedom, exploration and  fun!

The average gap year student isn’t heading off to a year of sunbathing. Gap year programmes are, more often than not, organised and partially funded by Non-Government Organisations (charities) with the aim of helping gap year students mature, learn and experience bountifully in a environment they wouldn’t normally have access too e.g. building houses in Bolivia, teaching English in Cambodia etc. Simply put – frugal living is generally a must!

With free time and finances of gap year students often being so limited, it’s important to make the most of every chance to explore. Car hire affords eager gap year explorers the freedom to discover at will. The more bums in car seats, the cheaper the car hire per person!

The likes of cheap car hire in South Africa are perhaps the most cost-effective, safe and reliable ways to travel. Although globally varying age restrictions apply to car hire in South Africa, New Zealand, Australia and so on, exceptions can sometimes be made at the rental agents discretion. Our access to the best cheap car hire rates around the globe puts us in a wonderful position to seek out such providers.
