The Benefits of Hiring a Car

Whether you’re jetting off for a week away, planning a day trip in the UK or working away, transport is likely to be one of your top considerations. 

Is the accommodation close to the airport?

How regular is the public transport?

Are the trains running on time?

These are all questions you’ll probably be asking yourself, but with car hire you don’t have to worry. 

Renting a car is all about comfort and convenience, providing you with additional freedom and allowing you to get on with enjoying your holiday or trip. 

The benefits of hiring a car really are endless, and not only can it provide you with extra flexibility, but it also eliminates any added stress to your trip. 

At Gatwick Car & Van Rental, we’ve spent years providing the people of Gatwick, Crawley and beyond with first-class car hire services. Winning countless awards along the way, we know a thing or two about how hiring a car can enhance your trip wherever you’re visiting.  

So, if you’re asking yourself ‘why should I hire a car?’ read on to find out…

Freedom to explore 

Undoubtedly one of the biggest benefits of hiring a car is the freedom it gives you when you arrive at your destination. No more will you be bound by bus timetables and unreliable public transport, instead your destiny will be in your own hands, allowing you to travel and explore with complete freedom. 

Plus, you won’t be constrained to just the areas public transport has access to. With a hire car you can go further afield, allowing you to scratch beyond the surface and explore even more. This is particularly ideal if you’re on holiday, as it’ll give you the chance to discover places your average tourist would be unable to.    

Tailored to you

When you visit a car hire depot or make a booking online, you’ll be able to browse through a vast array of vehicles before deciding on a vehicle that best suits your needs. At Gatwick Car & Van Rental, we’re home to a fleet of more than 300 vehicles and can tailor our service specifically to your needs. 

Whether you need a large vehicle to keep your family comfortable or a smaller option just for you, many hire companies will take your requirements into account – meaning you drive away in something that is perfect for you. 

There is no one size fits all approach, and if you require any additional accessories, such as child seats, our team can cater to your every need. 

If you want an electric vehicle that’s better for the environment, we can help with that, too.   

Peace of mind 

While there are many great benefits of car hire, for most people peace of mind is the one that only really matters. 

When planning a long-distance journey or trip, it’s normal to feel reluctant about taking your own vehicle – particularly if it’s one you use on a regular basis. 

Sometimes, people are worried about breaking down or that their vehicle may not be able to cope with such a strenuous journey. But when you hire a car, you’ll always be provided with a quality vehicle that is safe, reliable and smooth to drive. 

Plus, the rental company will also take care of all the usual obligations such as tax and insurance, so you can focus on just enjoying your trip.
