Are you planning a relaxed weekend trip with friends or would you like to go on holiday with your family including lots of baggage? Then hire a practical station wagon for this time. The two vehicle types offer ample storage space for your baggage and a lot of comfort while driving. In addition, almost all models are characterised by high driving safety and low fuel consumption.
The spacious loading area of a station wagon not only offers space for people, but also enables the transport of bulky objects. For example, if you want to store a pram and several suitcases, the cargo space of a station wagon offers you enough space. Since this type of car is usually equipped with five doors and a tailgate, the vehicle can be loaded from all sides. Another advantage of the station wagon is the fold-down rear seats. If you need additional space after a major purchase or a visit to a furniture store, you can load the car up to the front seats. If you want to let another person ride with you, you can fold down only half of the rear seat on most models. In this way, you can enjoy maximum flexibility in all companies.
Share the car with friends on a weekend trip instead of driving multiple cars. Everyone travels much cheaper than by train or plane. If you still have free seats, you can easily find passengers by using a carpooling offer. Advantage: You can share not only the fuel costs, but also the rental costs. In order to avoid additional costs, you should also return the hired car with a full tank of fuel. Otherwise, most providers will charge you a refuelling fee in addition to the missing fuel.
Ask your car hire company whether additional services such as free kilometres, winter tyres or an additional driver are included in the offer. You should also consider what your security needs are. Is a fully comprehensive insurance with excess sufficient for you? Or do you prefer all-round protection with no excess?
If you need additional storage space, it is best to ask your car hire company in advance whether roof boxes or bicycle racks are available and how they are attached to the car. Child seats and navigation equipment should also be booked in advance. If you intend to fold the rear seats down, it is best to let the provider show you this as well. Wherever you go and whatever you want to transport, you are guaranteed to find a suitable hired car that will take you comfortably and cheaply to your destination.
