The joy of having your vehicle is unmatchable. You don’t have to stand in any kind of queue, you don’t have to worry about missing a train, you don’t have to worry about not getting a seat in the metro during rush hour and above all the control is in your hands. Literally.
Driving in one’s home country is not such a big deal as compared to driving in a foreign country.
When you’re on vacation and travel to countries you’ve never been before, it gets a little difficult to go around places, mostly because you don’t know the roads or you don’t know the local language. It’s always better to rent a car. Be it Paris, Auckland, China or even if you need to rent a car in Kota Kinabalu you must consider this option.
Listing down a few reasons why you must rent a car when you’re traveling in a foreign country:
You’re free to drive around at your own terms – when you have your own vehicle you don’t stop at unnecessary stops or pick other passengers. It is also annoying that you end up wasting so much time when you’re traveling with so many people. With your own vehicle you can decide to stay longer at some locations and some places you can simply skip.
You will explore new places and understand the culture better – traveling to a new country should not just be about visiting tourist places and taking a few selfies. If you haven’t experienced the local life, then you won’t have real fun. With your own vehicle you can visit new and unexplored routes and also end up making new friends.
You will end up saving a lot of money – you won’t realize but if you change your mode of travel quite often (which you will have to because you’re in a different country) you will end up wasting a lot of money because sometimes one kind of travel mode will be more expensive than the other which you may not know at that moment.
Having your own car to go around places in a different country is not just very liberating but also very comfortable.
