For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
Solo, you can listen to your music, podcasts or audio books as you wish — even on repeat. On a group road trip, pass the time with grown-up versions of classic road trip games, or catch up on life with old friends. Rent a car with hands-free audio and you can chat with friends and family on the phone while driving solo, as well.
Rental cars aren’t just convenient for road trips; they make any trip customized by putting you in the driver’s seat and allowing you the freedom to define your ride. We’ve all been there with the super chatty rideshare driver or one playing a genre of music you hate. Or there’s the lost taxi driver and the overcrowded public transportation where you’re stuck standing. Don’t let those factors dictate your ride; decide that for yourself.
