Road trips are the best part of summer, so you want to make sure you rent a car that’s capable of handling everything that comes with life on the road. Here is our breakdown of the best kind of vehicles to rent for your summer road trip.
Ok, a minivan may not sound very cool, but the truth is a minivan lives up to all your road trips needs. They are incredibly durable, get decent gas mileage, and can store all kinds of luggage and road trip supplies. If you’re traveling with a dog, they make things more comfortable as well. If you’re traveling with little ones, a minivan is almost a must. Being able to accommodate multiple car seats while also having room for storage is nearly impossible in other vehicles.
An SUV is a perfect choice if you plan to be active on your road trip. Have a camping trip planned? Or are you going mountain biking? An SUV has plenty of room to store all your trip necessities while having plenty of leg room for those long driving hours. The gas mileage may not be as good as the smaller vehicles, but since you’re just renting and comfort is a top priority, it may be worth the extra expense.
If you’re traveling solo or just with one companion, a smaller hybrid would be an excellent choice. Hybrids are extremely fuel efficient and can be quite roomy for a smaller sedan. The quiet, comfortable ride will take the edge off the long hours of driving, while their high safety ratings can give you peace of mind while driving on unfamiliar roads.
