Are you planning to go on vacation soon? Have you got detailed plans written down, or do you just want to get there and then figure out how to get around?
Hiring a car service for a vacation seems like too much of a luxury for most people. But what they don’t consider is the amount of time they can save by doing so, which can greatly affect their enjoyment.
Below are 5 compelling reasons why you should hire a car service on your next vacation.
Vacation at Your Own Pace
Tour buses leave at a set time, usually early in the morning, and have to go around all the routes before coming back to the drop off point.
But let’s face it. Not all of us are morning people. Not all of us like to listen to a person drone on about whatever while we sit cramped together with strangers.
With your own car service, you can be picked up right at your hotel’s doorstep (or wherever you want to be picked up) and dropped off at the same place. You can tell the driver to skip places you’re not interested in. He might even suggest a replacement that not many tourists get a chance to go to!
If you suddenly feel sick or get into an accident, you’ll be delivered straight to a hospital as well.
More People? No Problem!
If you’re traveling with family or a group of friends, one of the most difficult thing is transportation. You have to go in two cabs, which costs a lot. Sometimes there’s not enough room for all of you in the bus, so either split up and take 2 trips, or wait for one that’s empty. This wastes time.
If you hire a car service, you can specify the size of the vehicle to fit everyone in the party.
No Time Wasted Figuring Out Routes
This is one of the reasons people miss trains or buses – they can’t figure out which ones to get on! Instead of stressing over what line number subway to ride or which bus stop to get off of, simply sit back and trust your hired vehicle’s expert chauffeur to bring you to your destination safely and quickly.
Discover Places That Locals Love
Since your chauffeur would also be a local, he can introduce you to hot spots unknown to tourists. You can sample the real cuisine they eat everyday. You can score great bargains at markets or shopping centers that don’t have “tourist price” by default. Chauffeurs of hired services are trained to give professional guidance and the best customer service.
Make a New Friend!
The drivers do want to genuinely welcome you to their country. If you’re nice to yours, you may even make him a friend for life, and so you’ll always have someone you know in that country whenever you come back!
