Taking a road trip in the fall is a great time to see some beautiful foliage, enjoy cool temperatures, and just take a break before the stress of the holidays. And if you rent a car for a road trip, you can save some wear and tear on your own car while gaining peace of mind.
Depending on the type of car you own, renting a car for a long road trip may actually save you money. If your car prefers to guzzle gas instead of sipping it, renting a more fuel efficient car can save on fuel costs.
Another good reason to rent is if your personal car is a lease. Since lease contracts include mileage limits, taking a road trip with a rental lets you save your lease miles for your everyday driving and avoid overages.
Finally, if you’ve been considering buying a new car, rent one and consider your road trip an extended test drive.
If you want to take a road trip this fall, there are some great locations right here along the east coast, including Berkeley Springs, West Virginia; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; Asheville, North Carolina; and Savannah, Georgia.
