Most people don’t need to own a 10-seater van, which is why the next best solution is to hire one. The next time you have an overnight function with a group, or are travelling with friends or family, rent a van for the following three reasons.
You Can Spread Out
Say you and your colleagues are going away on a teambuilding weekend. Or, you and your extended family are going on a vacation. It’s more cost-effective to travel together; however, eventually, you’ll need some space. Long drives can get uncomfortable and claustrophobic, so you need the extra space to spread out and enjoy the ride.
There’s Enough Space For Storage
A great benefit to travelling with a group in a van is how much extra space you have for storage. When you go separately in your own cars, you have to try to squeeze every bag in the boot of each car. And that doesn’t take fishing, snorkelling, camping, golfing or hiking gear into consideration. If you have a full itinerary of fun things to do during your trip, you’ll need the extra space to store everything, which makes a van the perfect vehicle to use.
Travelling Together Is Better For Everyone
If you’re going away with a group of friends, it’s much easier to rent a van and split the cost between everyone going. It’s more affordable as well. When each person takes their car, they’re paying costs in mileage, wear and tear and petrol costs. Not forgetting to mention that some vehicles are more fuel-efficient than others, so some parties might even pay more than others, which isn’t fair. If you rent a van, you can split the costs evenly between everyone.
Travelling together also provides an element of safety and punctuality. If one person is driving their own vehicle, which is unreliable for long stretches of driving, there’s the worry that they’ll break down. Others can have trouble with staying punctual, following road maps, or driving long distances. But when you rent a van, you don’t have to worry about someone falling behind, getting lost or breaking down. You can all travel and arrive together, on time and in one piece.
If you’re planning a getaway, a Christmas function over a weekend for your colleagues or a vacation with friends and family, the best way to travel is together. Rent a van, stay safe and in a group, and you’ll have stress-free travels.
