The holiday season is upon us and it’s time to create lasting memories and celebrate traditions with the ones you love the most. However, the feelings of nostalgia and fun can be overshadowed by stress if you are not careful. In order to make your holiday dreams a reality, your friends at Value Van and Car Rental recommend keeping a few things in mind this holiday season.
Book Your Rental Car Early
Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year in the car rental business. Families are traveling all over the United States to visit their loved ones, and renting a car is a popular way to go. Between people renting for road trips to save the wear and tear on their own vehicles and people renting from the airport, the supply is almost less than the demand! Don’t risk not being able to find the right rental car for your family by waiting too long to book.
Check the Weather
If you are traveling out of state or to an area you are unfamiliar with, it’s a good idea to check the weather forecast ahead of time. You may be dealing with weather that you don’t normally have to drive through. Snow, ice, or other conditions may make your holiday travel more stressful, especially if you are in the wrong vehicle. If your plans are going to take you to a tricky weather area, make sure you choose a rental with 4-wheel drive like a full-size SUV.
Don’t Blow Your Budget
Finally, as you plan your holiday travel, make sure you aren’t blowing your budget on a rental car when you could be spending that money on other holiday fun. At Value Van and Car Rental, we believe that bigger isn’t always best — in fact, sometimes smaller is the smartest and most cost-efficient option. That’s why we offer cheap, economy car rentals that are easy on the environment and your wallet. With rates starting at just $29.99 paired with reduced spending on fuel, you can feel confident that you are getting the most for your money.
The key to a successful road trip is in the planning, so don’t wait to book your rental car. If you need a rental car in the Union or Newark, NJ, area, contact Value Van and Car Rental today at (908) 851-9595 to make a reservation, or book online anytime.
