Can Renting an RV Save Holiday Travel Time?

When someone is traveling with a large group for the holidays, they want that trip to go smoothly and efficiently. Thanksgiving and Christmas are a time for family, fun and relaxation. The last thing travelers need is the stress of getting to the airport at four in the morning only to find out that their flight was canceled or delayed. Here at RV Dallas we can help.

When someone is traveling with a large group for the holidays, they want that trip to go smoothly and efficiently. Thanksgiving and Christmas are a time for family, fun and relaxation. The last thing travelers need is the stress of getting to the airport at four in the morning only to find out that their flight was canceled or delayed.

Let's face it: Flying may be fast once in the air, but the whole process isn't nearly as fast as people make it out to be. Airlines ask passengers to show up two hours early, so that means waking up at least three to four hours before the flight. After driving to the airport, passengers have to pay to park their car, take a shuttle over to the terminal, check their bag, find the gate and then wait for them to call the section and finally depart. After arriving at the destination, waiting again as the plane approaches the gate, and finally walking to the baggage claim to pick up checked bags, that process can take thirty to forty minutes. Then there’s always the stress of hoping the bags weren’t one of the many that got loaded onto a different plane destined to a far off land that you may take days at best to get back.

At the end of the day, that “quick” flight took hours longer than it should have, it cost an incredible amount of money, and it puts some people on a stressful schedule that may have started the holidays off to a bad start. Is there a better way?

Renting a Premium RV

Here at RV Dallas, we have premium RVs for all of your travel needs. We get it; most don't want to make the investment and buy an RV that is used just during the holiday season. With our rental vehicles, travelers get an affordable option that can transport as many people as needed to their holiday destination. Some of the perks include:

  • Travelers gets to travel on their own schedule.
  • They get to stop whenever they want.
  • Can travel in comfort that they will never find in economy class.
  • Their RV rental will not get canceled or delayed.
  • They can bring as much luggage as they want/need; forget about those surprise bag fees.
  • Travelers don't have to spend nearly as much time waiting around, but get to spend it crossing the country in style. Driving allows one to experience that trip and broaden their horizons, while flying forces them to breathe recycled air for hours without seeing anything of note.

The winter weather can wreak havoc with flights. As of Oct. 16, 2019, in the past 30 days, there have been nearly 35,000 canceled flights in the world, and more than 125,000 flights got delayed. It happens constantly. Historically, more than a quarter of all flights get delayed, and December is by far the worst month.

With a large family, holiday travel is stressful. If a winter storm grounds the plane or at least means it's going to be significantly late – possibly causing people to miss their connection – it gets that much worse. People can lose entire days. Airlines apologize and offer to put one in a hotel, but they may not get the whole family onto a new flight until the following day. It can ruin plans in a heartbeat.

Opening up ones Home

Another advantage of a premier RV is that it acts as an instant home addition, giving one the space they need when their loved ones are in town. The holidays bring everyone together, and it's that joy and closeness that families love so much. Logistically, though, one home often doesn't have enough space for everyone's growing families.

An RV is a fast, comfortable, convenient way to add space. Parked on your property or simply on the street in front of the home, it adds sleeping space, living areas, bathrooms and even food prep options. Instead of sending family members to a hotel miles away, they get to remain just as close as possible, while still ensuring that everyone has enough of their own personal space.

The RV Life

Compared to flying, it's clear that an RV is more accommodating, more comfortable, less stressful and often even faster. It also opens up your home and keeps your loved ones close.
