Why rent a family car?

A family car will not only give you and your family more freedom to travel, but it will also ensure you enjoy a more comfortable experience along the way. You will have more legroom, be able to travel at your own pace .

Travelling by car is also more reliable and stress-free than using public transport. Trains often don’t run on time which means you miss connections, while buses can be even more unreliable, especially during the peak holiday season.

These cars benefit from having high ground clearance, active stability control, active traction control and emergency brake assist to help keep you and your family safe during the journey. Our family hire cars also benefit from seating for up to five passengers and provide generous luggage capacity. So you won’t be limited to a few suitcases like you are on public transport. You will also have the space to bring the family pet along for the ride, so you and the whole family can enjoy the experience of a lifetime.
  • City driving – If you prefer a city holiday, then we can supply a range of competitively priced family cars to hire which are better suited to city driving. These cars typically have lower ground clearance than our SUVs and are more compact, making them easier to manoeuvre in and around town.

They also offer plenty of luggage capacity and come fully equipped with in-car entertainment, including Apple CarPlay on some models, allowing you to keep the family entertained while on the move.

Benefits of our family car hire

Hiring a family car has several benefits over using public transport to get around. First of all, you can travel at your own pace and set your own itinerary. This will give you the freedom to visit the places YOU want to see and stay as long as you need to see everything.

This makes for a much more relaxing stress-free holiday because you won’t be tied to train timetables or reliant on busses. You can set off when you want, to wherever you want and travel at the pace you want. This is a particular benefit if you have young children because kids often get bored on long journeys.

Not having a car will also limit you to the places where trains and buses travel. This means missing out on some off-the-beaten-track destinations which can be much more fun and exciting. The places where buses and trains terminate can also get very busy during the holidays. So if you’re looking for a more relaxed holiday, a family hire car is the way to go.

So don’t compromise your holiday by keeping to the train or bus timetables, enjoy the freedom of having your own car and visit the places you want to see.
