Choosing a Rental Vehicle for Your Road Trip

October 08, 2019, 6:09

If you are preparing for a vacation, you are likely thinking about how you’ll get to your destination. Before you embark on your journey, you need to consider how you can make your trip as comfortable and stress-free as possible. In many cases, the vehicle you use will determine whether your trip will go smoothly. Whether you’re planning on traveling far away by car or want to bring your boat with you, transportation is a vital part of your trip.

Rental vehicles often offer features that most cars do not provide. Here are some of the questions to ask yourself that we believe are most important for a successful road trip. Read about them, and when you’re ready to rent a vehicle for your vacation, call Marcus Allard Truck Rental!

What Kind of Trip Am I Going On?

Not all vacations are equal: every trip requires a different kind of vehicle. For instance, maybe you are headed to the great outdoors. You need a reliable vehicle to get you and your camper to the campsite, which is why our pickup trucks are perfect for you. Many of our pickup trucks are installed with hitches so you can pull your camper or boat behind you. With short and long decks available, you can haul your kayaks, bikes and other large items, too. What’s more, our pickup trucks come in several sizes so you can comfortably fit 3 to 5 passengers inside! 

How Much Space Do I Need?

Depending on the length of your trip, you could feel like you need some extra space for your luggage. You might also be bringing cases of water, tents, backpacks and anything else relevant to your trip. Whether you are renting a passenger van or a pickup truck, you will see just how much room you have! You won’t need to leave items behind or feel limited by the need to “pack light.” A rental truck has much more space than your conventional car. This makes rental trucks perfect for longer vacations where you need more space for luggage. 

How Many Passengers Will I Have?

Longer road trips can be physically taxing, especially if you’re short on legroom. No one wants to be stuck in the middle seat. If you’re planning on bringing lots of family and friends with you on your road trip, you’ll be satisfied to hear about our passenger vans! These vans comfortably fit between 8 to 15 people, so you won’t need to bother with cramming your guests into multiple cars. Bring the whole family with you by renting a passenger van.
