Want that interstate holiday, just not the driving part?
Driving across the country can cause wear on your car and sanity. From restless family members and long stretches of open road, travelling on holiday can be more of a chore. Here are some reasons you should skip the drive and meet your car instead.
Wear and tear
Long distance driving racks up the Kms, works the engine and wears down tires. Even more so if you’re only stopping to swap drivers and just want to get there. From someone who’s driven interstate for over a decade, “take breaks” there is an alternative, but more on that later.
Holidays can add up quickly. From flights, accommodation, food and things to do, add the car hire fees and it’s more strain than anyone wants. In most cases, transporting your own car can be more satisfying and cheaper.
For some families the use of their own car isn’t a luxury, it’s a requirement. Wheelchair access, door extensions, space, motorised ramps and other disability functions. Those with needs that limit their movement may miss out on an awesome adventure. With Door to Door Car Carrying’s vehicle transport service, it’s easy to include everyone in your holiday!
Large family car
When you live in your car as much as your home, you could feel lost without it. For large car families with extra seats and custom fitted baby carriers, it makes sense to use your own vehicle. Why settle for a hire car that may not meet your seating or space requirements. Especially if you want that interstate holiday, just not the driving part.
Custom built pet enclosures are hard to find (if at all) with a hire car. As most hire car companies don’t allow pets in vehicles, due to fur and other things pets do in cars. Regardless, we love our fur family with their weird dribble and funny back scratching requirements, “makes you wonder who’s in charge sometimes”. Share your holiday moments with them by transporting your car to your holiday destination.
The frustration of driving for long periods of time, with fatigue and other factors. One option is a hire car, which isn’t the car you know and trust can make holidays more annoying than enjoyable. Flying allows for hassle-free, safe travel, with your car waiting when you get there.
Have your pride and joy waiting for you
If you prefer to travel in the comfort of your vintage, classic or collectible, then renting a car doesn’t have the same feel as driving your baby. If your car has special security features that you can’t get in any other car, why compromise on luxury when you can take your own car with you?
In Adelaide, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth Door to Door Car Carrying has an Airport transfer service. Now you and your family will be taken to or picked up from the Airport while your car is held in a secure location.
This is a great option if you want that interstate holiday, just not the driving part.
Long distance driving
Things to consider if you decide to drive to your holiday destination:
Take breaks, not just to swap drivers, fatigue is real.
Have plenty of fluids and food available.
Setup a playlist of your favorite music, this really helps.
As always, be safe on the roads, we all want to get to where we are going.
The alternative is to have your vehicle transported and take the hassle out of your holiday so you can spend more time enjoying it.
