- The vehicle you own might be a small, sporty two-door coupe. It doesn’t have enough trunk space to handle your luggage and all the other stuff you’ll need to bring on a road trip. And a car like this is great fun to drive, but it doesn’t have the most comfortable ride on the highway. Why not rent a roomy, comfy late-model SUV, luxury car or minivan instead of being overly cramped and suffering through every bump in the road? That’s an especially smart strategy if you’ll be traveling with several other people.
- Let’s say you and your family are taking a trip to a destination that’s several hundred miles away from your home. Why drive there and put all that excess wear and tear on your own car? Over time, that’s just going to bump up your maintenance and repair costs. Rent a car instead.
- Again, let’s say you’re planning a trip to a distant destination. Why drive there at all when you can fly and save so much of your precious vacation time? Car rentals are available at most airports. You’ll be able to spend more time seeing the sights at your destination (and less time just getting there).
- Maybe you don’t mind driving your own car, but it’s being repaired at a bad time or you’re not sure it will make the trip without breaking down. Rent a car instead.
- Or maybe you’re driving to a place where the roads are very rough. For example, part of the road to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon is suitable only for 4x4s. Rent one instead of risking damage to your own car.
Those are just some of the reasons travelers rent cars during their trips – there are many more. But why rent your car online, in particular? What are the advantages of booking your rental car through a site like Northwest Airlines? Why not just go to the nearest airport or car rental storefront and pick one up?
- If you try to rent a car on the spur of the moment, there might not be any available in the size, type or price range you need. Your chances of getting the vehicle you want for a price you can afford go up significantly by booking online and in advance.
- Rental rates are almost always cheaper if you book your car online.
- Convenience – booking rental cars online (and hotel rooms, for that matter) through a site like ours is quick, easy and convenient. You don’t need to leave your home or even pick up the phone.
Whether you’re taking a business trip or a family vacation, there are several advantages to renting your car online through Northwest Airlines.Google+
