If you are going on vacation or taking a trip, you should rent a travel van! With summer coming to a close, people are trying to get their last-minute vacations and road trips. Planning the trip isn’t always easy. For the most part, figuring out where to go, where to stay, and what to visit is fun to do. However, deciding who is driving and what vehicle you should take is another story. Like it or not, long-distance trips can put a strain on your car with miles and maintenance needs. If you don’t want to pull out your keys, then renting a van is an incredible option!
Preserving Your Car
Like it or not, travel causes wear and tear to your vehicle. Although the wear and tear isn’t always noticeable, over time it can be a problem. Your tires, engine, and other moving parts will suffer a bit every mile you drive. According to the It Still Runs, some vehicles can experience $0.34 of damage per mile. While it seems small, this number only grows! If you are on a 1,000-mile road trip, that is $340 of wear and tear. In addition, to wear and tear, your miles will begin to pile up as well. If you want to keep the miles low on your car, renting is a better option.
Your Vehicle is Not Reliable
If your vehicle has seen better days, it should probably stay in the garage. Maybe you got into a car accident or it’s just old. Regardless, you should never drive a vehicle that is not 100% ready for travel. If you’re taking a long trip or will be driving a lot of miles or in sparsely populated areas (like across the Mackinaw Bridge and into the U. P. ), driving a damaged or defective car can put you and others at risk.
Need a Bigger Ride?
Although driving your own car is nice, sometimes it is not the best option. All cars have pros and cons. Many cars have limited space for storage and passengers, leading to people needing to take more than one car. However, a travel van can give you better storage options and give you plenty of space for extra passengers. Need to bring some wakeboards to the lake? A van can fit that! Have to bring extra items? Not a problem. During the winter, a travel van can be the perfect solution to taking all your snowboard and skiing gear up to Boyne Mountain.
