Road Trip

Who doesn’t love a road trip? We enjoy the freedom and exploration that a set of wheels allows. Sometimes public transport can be unreliable with taking us to the start of particular hiking trails. Therefore, our hiking trips often require a car. With that, a mini road trip emerges. Generally speaking, a car provides the necessary means to properly explore a place. Sometimes public transport will suffice. It’s also more cost efficient. For instance, we didn’t hire a car in Patagonia due to many factors. Firstly, hiring a car for a road trip would be very expensive. Secondly, logistically it would prove very difficult. This was because we would bounce around Chile and Argentina. Car hire companies can sometimes be strict with driving into another country. Thirdly, the bus system in Patagonia works very well. So there was no need to have a car for that trip.

However, for many other trips, having a set of wheels was essential. Usually, our weekend trips around Europe from London would be road trips. Our itineraries were often jam packed. So we would need a car to be able to see all that we needed. A road trip gave us absolute freedom in that regard. For instance, our Lithuania Weekend Road Trip Itinerary is one of our most popular European guides. This trip is a prime example of exploring the breadths of the country with a car. It was this style of trip that allowed us to see as much as we did. Also, a road trip for exploring islands is often unavoidable. As far as we’re aware, the public transport options available on Bruny Island, Tasmania would be minimal. So having a car for that trip was perfect!
