Election Buzz in the Air

No matter where you live in the country, there’s no way that you missed Election Day on November 6th. Whether you voted or not, you knew it was here. Presidential Debates and spin-off Saturday Night Live skits have been filling up the TV lineup. Social media websites have been clogged with political opinions, jokes and a few arguments. Every few miles, another sign with an American flag on it and the words “Vote Here” was placed at the nearest church or school. With all of the things that the election affects, travel is just one of them.

To Vacation or Not to Vacation?

That’s the question on many people’s minds this year. While you can certainly send in an absentee ballot if you know you’re going to be out of the state on Election Day, some people don’t trust this method. What if it’s not private? What if it gets lost in the mail? This concert alone has prevented families from booking flights at the beginning of November. One solution is to stay put through November 6th and then get a cheap car rental for a few days away somewhere within driving distance.

The Election and Hurricane Sandy

The election couldn’t have come at a worse time. Residents of New York and New Jersey are barely back on their feet after Hurricane Sandy and many have had to spend the past several days staying with a friend or family member. Since you have to cast your vote in your own district, this means that a lot of people have had to travel over the past few days just to get back home. Luckily, cheap rental cars were available for those who carpooled out of their hometown.

Traveling to D.C.

If you spend election week in Washington, D.C., chances are you had to depend on a cheap rental car to get you around town. People flock to D.C. to be closer to the action during an election, which means that public transportation is packed. The easiest and most convenient way to get around D.C. during election time is to depend on your own cheap rental car.
