Have rising prices been getting the best of you? Woodford Car Hire has a few tips for keeping your road trip budgets down and bank balances up.
There’s no overstating the need to plan thoroughly when preparing to take a trip. Once you’ve decided on the destination and the purpose of the trip, map out the places you want to visit, including any places of interest, restaurants, and hot spots. Take into account the distances and then build it into the rental deal you’re booking with Woodford by taking advantage of free kilometres or booking more in advance if you need to.
There’s a fine line between packing too little and too much. Apart from the most important items, such as clothes and toiletries, keep an eye on the travel-related goods such as phone chargers, batteries and towels or sunscreen. You can save a lot by carrying some of these items, rather than purchasing them from places on the road that usually inflate prices for travellers. If you anticipate carrying more luggage, make sure to choose the right vehicle to bear the load – Woodford’s website has a helpful set of info detailing how many bags each of its vehicles can take.
It might sound like a stretch, but ensuring that your driving is sensible and above all ‘legal’, will save you lots in petrol and potential fines. Moderate driving between 100 km/h and 120 km/h on highways have been proven by studies to consume the least amount of petrol. It always means you’ll be well within the speed limit on open road. You can always make potential savings on your trip with sensible and alert driving, because according to statistics, reckless or speedy driving results in accidents, both minor and major. Of course, loss of life or injury should be the biggest deterrent, but there’s always the damage of the vehicle to consider as well. Woodford Car Hire has you covered, if you choose waivers to limit your liability in the event of any accident or even any damage to tyres or glass.
