Why Not Take a Road-trip?

By Kenin Bassart @Constantramble

So you like to explore and you want to live a travel experience in a unique, independent and absolutely fun way.  A road trip might just be the right option to consider. Today’s article offers a perspective on some of the ingredients that make up a great road trip.

What makes a road trip a good idea?

If you are still uncertain about road tripping and why you should definitely consider it as an option, here are a few reasons: A road trip gives you the opportunity to visit several different places in a free, comfortable and independent way. You won’t be dependent on schedules of public transport, the rigid structure of organized tours and you will be able explore the most hidden and off-the-beaten-path places, for an authentic and original experience.

Why not take a road-trip?

How to get started: comparing is saving

Assuming that you’re renting a car for your road trip (which saves wear and tear on the vehicle you own), you should take some time to research and compare the different rental options available and make sure that you’re getting a deal that is best suited to your requirements and budget.

A website like allows you to accomplish this and also to customize your experience, with flexible pick up and return dates and times.

Plan your route carefully 

Of course to get things started you need a plan: winging it is usually not a very good idea (unless you have a very flexible schedule and budget). So why not have at least some highlights in your itinerary with prefixed routes and then, using them as a starting point while allowing for some deviation? It’s always nice to have a plan B if unexpected circumstances arise on your trip.

Don’t skimp on the details

When it comes to things like packing for the trip and renting a vehicle, details matter. Things like adding a second (or third) driver to the car rental policy, or packing some extra equipment may end up making your trip that much more comfortable and enjoyable.
