Rental Vs. Public Transport

One of the biggest concern people have when it comes to exceptional travel experience is transportation. Regardless of whether it is a family trip to the closest national park or a long-distance destination, what kind of transportation to use is an essential part of any trip. People are often deciding between renting a vehicle or using public transportation such as train or bus. We are very well aware of the benefits private transportation has. Aside from comfort, rental allows greater flexibility, reliability and freedom. Yes, exploring countryside is fun, but will a bus driver stop for you to take a picture of a beautiful sight you’d like to capture. Of course, not. Or at least not as often as you’d like.

With rental you can stop as many times you like and take a road which suits you the most. And, lets not forget about time. No need to rush to get to the station on time and carrying a driving schedule with you at all times just to make sure you don’t miss your ride. However, regardless of all these benefits, many avoid visiting car hire Richmond companies and turn to public transport as they are afraid something may happen to the rented vehicle and they’ll be held reliable for it. All rental companies offer insurance which will not make you responsible for any damage to the car. Now, this is a bit pricey option, but it’s worth it. And you can always negotiate on the price of daily rental to lower overall rental price of the vehicle. There are many cheap van hire Melbourne companies that will certainly satisfy your demands in terms of comfort, availability and price. And keep in mind that rental price is not fixed, thus do some negotiating. It will still cost less then going on a family trip with a train.

Another concern when it comes to car or van rentals Melbourne is theft. Not that this cannot happen, but rental companies have solution for that as well. You can always purchase a ‘theft insurance’ and be worry-free on your dream trip. The cost of this insurance will probably cost you as much as two train tickets would. Of course, being cautious is imperative. Do not park in dark alleys nor leave any personal belongings in the car such as passport, wallet or similar stuff that may allure local thieves. Traveling by rental vehicle may seem a bit discouraging at first, but the freedom and memorable experience surely overshadow this part of your trip.
