Most drivers understand that pricing is the primary deciding factor when renting a car. Yet considering the usage that the driver may have planned for the vehicle, one may want to take a closer look at various rental car size categories. But what details should drivers pay most attention to? Car Rental Express recommends that drivers look at the following areas:
1. Purpose of the car rental
Most of us are familiar with the car rental for a business trip; one either takes the smallest, cheapest car available from the car rental counter at the airport or simply accepts whatever type of car the company has already set up. Of course, if it’s a personal trip, one might think twice about renting too much car for a couple of days. Perhaps it might be fine settling for an economy or compact rental car class. These are the smallest cars available from a standard car rental counter, and may either be a two-door or four-door without much room in the back seat. Certainly not what one would call a 'road' car.
2. Length of the car rental
If this is a long-haul trip where one is going to have to drive to the destination, going to the new Legoland Hotel in Carlsbad, California for example, one would probably want to have more room for luggage, especially if it is a family trip. A compact car is no match for the traveling needs of a family of say two adults and a couple of kids, and a road trip becomes much less fun when the entire trip is cramped. The smallest car class one would probably want to go with in this situation is a 'standard' class, but the fact that these cars can also come in two-door models means most family travelers want to opt for at least something in a 'full-size'.
By taking into consideration the length and purpose of the trip, drivers can better understand their options when choosing a car size category. Car Rental Express provides more information in this area for drivers to help them plan their road trips.
