Making the Most of Your Holiday

Many Brits head off into the sun every year with the intention of doing little more than covering themselves in cooking oil and basking in the glorious heat until they are golden brown or burnt to a crisp. But for the rest of us, there’s often a lot more to a well-earned break than the local beach.

Making the most of your time away can be a nightmare of family and friend politics and compromises of time and plans. One of the easiest ways to overcome any potential arguments is to hire a car. Car hire may seem to be an unnecessary additional cost to an already expensive time, but unless you’re taking a city break, then public transport may leave something to be desired.

Even in countries where public transport is both clean and frequent, holidaymakers may still have trouble trying to enjoy the more remote treats. Natural beauty spots and hidden gems are often only reachable by organised excursions, where the cost for a family or small group of friends can be much more than that of the cost of car hire for a number of days.

For example, cheap car hire in Spain for one day may be cheaper than the cost of a day’s excursion for one person, so if you can fill the car, the savings can be tremendous. The freedom that cheap car hire offers will also mean you’re not only saving time and money, but also a fair few arguments along the way.
