When organizing a trip, it is normal to think about what type of transportation to use: whether to use our own car or resort to a rental car. Sometimes it is difficult to expose one's own vehicle to a long road trip, and it may not even be in optimal condition to withstand the journey. Besides, the option of public transport is not very attractive to many. For all these reasons, renting a car for our next vacation may be the best option.

For all these reasons, renting a car for our vacations can be the best option.

Even if you own a car, there is always the possibility of renting one. If you do not like this option, especially because it is a very valuable item, here are the 5 main advantages of renting a car.

Why should I rent a car for my trip?

A road trip usually involves a lot of driving. Therefore, it is important to have comfortable and safe transport to ensure that we reach our destination without the slightest inconvenience on the road, both there and back.

Renting a car has many advantages, so more and more people are choosing this option as a means of transport to get around their vacation destination. The following are only the main ones.

More comfort during the trip

Many road trips involve spending long hours inside the vehicle. If we are traveling with someone else, or with the whole family, it is important to have all possible comforts inside the car. In this sense, rental companies offer multiple options, adapted to our needs.

In many cases, the regular size car is not our best option, either because of the limited space available, or because of other inconveniences it may have. This is when we should consider renting a vehicle better suited to our preferences.

When renting a car, thanks to the wide range available, we have the freedom to choose the model that best suits our needs. Whether it's a small car to drive by yourself or as a couple, a large van to travel with the family or even an all-terrain vehicle for touring a large nature reserve.

Total independence

Another of theadvantages of renting a car is that it allows you to enjoy total freedom and independence during your trip. In particular, we stress that you will not have to depend on public transport, allowingyou to free yourselves from timetables and limits on your route.


Most car rental companies offer the option of renting a car either at the airport, train station, or at their offices in the city. It is just a matter of landing and choosing the vehicle to drive to the hotel where we are staying, without the need to call a cab or take the bus.

Very competitive prices

Another advantage of renting a car is that in cities such as Madrid, Barcelona or Seville it can cost an average of 3 euros per day, depending on the category or model of the vehicle you choose. Making the same trip by public transport can be even more expensive.

It should be noted that the most advisable thing to do when renting a car is to book in advance, since it is always much more expensive at the destination and when there are lots of tourists it can be difficult to find availability.

No maintenance costs

Finally, one of the biggest advantages ofrenting a car is that you don’t have to cover the maintenance costs that may be required. This is because the company is responsible for keeping it up to date. What is more, should any problems arise, we can always count on the company's support and assistance.

In many companies the basic vehicle protection is already included in the initial rate, so we can enjoy the trip peacefully without the need to worry about any breakdowns.

Undoubtedly, renting a car on vacation is one of the best ways to get around on your trip. Whether for a family vacation or a business trip, it is important to have a safe and comfortable car in optimal conditions, to fully enjoy your journey.
