The Open Road
March can be a very strange time weather-wise. With not-quite-spring temperatures, occasional lingering snow and the first glimpses of the season to come in the form of budding flowers and greener scenery, it can be a volatile time to plan a road trip. That being said, it’s also a wonderful time to travel. With many resorts still offering winter prices, enticing car rental deals, current gas prices being more affordable and sunny days starting to become more common, March is actually a great time to take a road trip.
Have you ever traveled alone? Sure, you’ve probably traveled alone for work or taken a quick solo trip for an important event. But have you ever considered taking a vacation by yourself? Believe it or not, solo travel is highly beneficial and recommended to everyone.
Are you hearing the call of the cross-country road trip? It’s something everyone should do at least once in their lives, preferably many times. Of course, if it’s not something you do right after high school or college, real life tends to get in the way. Once you’ve got a full-time job and a family to tend to, taking the time to drive across the nation and back starts to seem far-fetched.
Valentine’s Day is this weekend, and as luck would have it, it’s a three day weekend for most. This is the perfect chance to pack your bags, treat yourself to a nice luxury car rental and take a road trip to a romantic destination with your special someone. And with every part of North America having plenty of spots for sweethearts to stay, your possibilities are endless.
Here are just eight of the many possibilities for enjoying a long weekend of love:
While it may not seem like winter and driving are a good combination, the fact is, some of the most scenic and beautiful drives are best taken during the snowy season. As long as the weather outside isn’t too frightful, you’re used to winter driving conditions and your hybrid car rental contains all the necessary emergency supplies, you shouldn’t be afraid to embark on one of America’s best winter road trips.
East Coasters, Midwesterners, and everyone else who’s tired of winter weather...your frustration is understandable. With subzero temperatures and never ending snowstorms in some parts of the country, an escape to a toastier climate sounds downright irresistible right now. But unfortunately, an exotic vacation just might not be in the post-holiday budget.
For the novice, renting a car can seem like an intimidating and complicated process. And while it’s actually quite simple, between deciding on the best vehicle for your situation and learning what’s included in the fine print, it’s easy to see how it can get confusing. Extra insurance or no insurance? Luxury car rental or exotic car rental. You get the idea.
The phrase “road trip” brings a lot of things to mind—excitement, adventure, and seeing new places in a unique way. Unfortunately, traveling long distances by car can also be stressful, especially if you have a family or group of friends with you.
According to the results of a recent survey, two thirds of adults in the U.S. resolve to travel more every year. Some get specific, with a list of destinations and a plan, while other simply want to see places they’ve never seen before. As we say goodbye to 2015 and welcome the new year, it’s a great time to take stock of your travel-related hopes and dreams and decide which ones to focus on right now.
