The Benefits of a Self-Drive Vacation

With all of the changes that have taken place over the past two years, there’s no doubt there have many benefits changes in the travel industry! One of the biggest trends we are seeing is the rise of self-drive vacations. And even though many of us are adapting to the new normal and heading on other vacations as well, these types of trips have certainly proven to have their advantages. Let’s discover the major benefits of self-drive vacations and how you can head on one!

What is a Self-Drive Vacation?

A self-drive vacation is a package that, at the base, includes a rental car, accommodations, and transportation. This involves flying to a destination of interest and picking up your car from the regional airport. There, you will be able to venture out into the open roads and explore sites you are truly interested in while having a pre-suggested itinerary by your side. Travel from city to city as you enjoy pre-planned accommodations in each place and explore the country the way you want to see it! 

What are the Benefits of Self-Drive Vacations?

Lots of Freedom and Flexibility

One of the greatest benefits of a self-drive vacation is being able to explore a destination the way you want to. You will have a pre-suggested itinerary by your side with sites to see and a route to explore, developed by travel experts who know the root by heart. Therefore, you can pick and choose sites you want to see, follow them all, or completely ignore this list and follow your heart! Just make sure you make it to the cities where your accommodations will be booked… which brings us to our next point!

Comfort, Convenience and Ease

While you will have the freedom and flexibility you desire, you will ALSO get the comfort and convenience that comes with having ALL of your accommodations pre-planned and booked for you, in the best hotels our expert partners could find — for the best possible price! You won’t have to do any of the planning yourself, so you can entirely SKIP OUT on the stress that comes with searching for places to stay and making sure they align with where you’re traveling. So go ahead and enjoy your vacation!  

They’re Great for Social Distancing

If you want to stay safe during COVID-19 but can’t help but venture out and explore the world, then we’ve got the perfect solution for you! Can you think of any better way to practice social distancing while traveling than hitting the road by yourself, or in your close-knit group, without having to go to sites that are packed or joining large tours? You can use your judgment and determine which sites are safe for yourself, so you will have complete control over what you would like to see and when you can see it.  

You Can Access Very Great Prices

Another one of the major benefits of self-drive vacations is the pricing. These packages are often much more affordable than you might have expected, as all of the additional costs of inner-city flights, train tickets, and mandatory excursions you are not interested in seeing will be cut out. Instead, you will only pay for sites you want to see, making your trip more affordable and enjoyable! Our supplies also search for the best prices for comfortable and reliable hotels, so you can get the best value out of your trip!

Explore a Country at Your Own Pace

If you’re someone who doesn’t like to wait in line or follow a crowd, whether it’s standing at sites or following a fast-paced itinerary, then self-drive tours might be for you! One of the best ways to travel at your own pace is with a self-drive itinerary, as you can choose how many sites you want to check out, how many photo stops you want to make, or which route you want to take. Shorter or scenic will be up to you, depending on what your interests are and what pace you want to set out and explore at.

Are you thinking about grabbing a rental car and setting out on the roads for yourself?
