City Living – Rent or Buy that Dream Car?

Filed under: Cheap Car Hire — Tags: , , , — admin @ 10:39 am September 30, 2010

Transport is often a point of major stress when living in a city. Whether it’s a traffic jam that stretches for miles on end or yet another late train, it seems whichever mode of transport you prefer there will always be a problem. But which is better – owning a car, or relying on public transport and renting a car for those long distance journeys?

Although the freedom of owning a car may seem appealing, as soon as you enter into the city centre it turns into a nightmare. Congestion charges need to be added on to the cost of buying, insuring and maintaining your vehicle, as well as that ever increasing cost of fuel. Add to this the time wasted sitting in traffic jams and suddenly the nightmare is a reality.

On the other hand, despite the bad press it receives, public transport does have it’s benefits. A weekly ticket will often save you money, save long queues, do your bit for the environment and also solve the problem of a value depreciating vehicle.

When you need to travel further, maybe getting away from the city life and visiting that wonderful greenery we call the countryside, car hire can be a cheap and reliable option. With the newest vehicles and insurance included, and with an abundance of cheap car hire companies around, car hire doesn’t have to break the bank.

Although you may traditionally associate it with being on holiday, car hire in the UK may well provide you with just the freedom you need.
