Take the pressure off your festive travel plans

Christmas is nearly here again! Festive adverts are back on the TV, and present shopping has started. You may be beginning to think about when to pre-order the Turkey. There’s lots to consider when it comes to Christmas planning. One way to reduce the list is to consider a hire car for your winter break.

Organising travel, either to a holiday destination of your choice or to return to your family home, can be difficult over the festive period. Hiring a car at Christmas will relieve some of this stress. Here are three reasons why booking a hire car with us will help your plans run smoothly.

1.Avoid Public Transport Worries

Travelling by public transport at Christmas can be expensive, stressful and busy. Hiring a car for your journey home will prevent the stress of getting stuck with bags of presents at a train station when everything gets delayed. Easily pack all your luggage in the boot and zip down the motorway in one of our hire cars. You can choose what time to set off and who you want to sit next to in a comfortable and guaranteed seat. Play your favourite Christmas tunes through the stereo and arrive at your family’s house in your own time, ready to start the festivities.

Our small compact cars are the perfect choice for your Christmas drive home. An affordable option, the range includes the likes of a Vauxhall Corsa, Kia Picanto or Toyota Aygo. These are available as manual or automatic, whichever you prefer. With all four seats, you’ll have space to transport your presents and give a lift to a friend or family member. Sat Nav is available as an optional extra to guide you safely and help avoid traffic jams.

Festive train prices seem to rise every year, with many planned journeys being cancelled due to maintenance work. Hiring a car from us means you can be certain you will reach your destination.

2. Space for Family

If you have a large family, you will know the complexity of planning Christmas travel arrangements well. How do you distribute the family between three cars in order to calmly and effectively get everyone to the pantomime or the pub lunch? Maybe you have booked a family trip away this Christmas. Travelling to your picturesque holiday cottage in one vehicle will simplify everything. We have solutions for you so everyone can travel with comfort and legroom.

Our large cars include 4-5 seats and plenty of space. Options include a BMW 3 Series, Kia Optima or a Ford Focus. Child seats are also available as an optional extra through our service, ideal for your smaller relatives. Other extras include Sat Nav and a collection and delivery service. Our larger cars generally have larger boot space, too, so you can be confident packing everything you need for the big day.

If you are planning a trip away with a larger group, we recommend our MPV (Multi Person Vehicle) Hire. Seating between 7-9 people, MPVs are ideal for travelling together with the whole family. For more information about the available models check our page on MPVs. Some of our MPV model examples include Vauxhall Vivaro, Mitsubishi Outlander and Mercedes Vito, amongst others. Hiring an MPV will simplify your travel plans, allowing you to enjoy travelling together.

3. Peace of Mind

We all love a white Christmas. However, travelling by car in winter can be unpredictable. Cold temperatures, icy roads, and even snow can cause complications.

At Caversham Vehicle Hire, we are constantly updating our fleet of vehicles. When hiring from us, you can be sure you receive a reliable, quality car. Every car in our fleet has been fully serviced and well-maintained, ready to overcome the winter weather. For extra peace of mind, we offer complete breakdown assistance to ensure you’ll be well looked after should anything unexpected happen.

By choosing a hire car for Christmas, you can travel without the fear of unwanted car repair bills. We take care of any car maintenance needed. When the wintery weather hits, you can be assured that we have checked everything ahead of time, ensuring your hire car is in excellent condition and will provide a relaxing travel experience.

In addition, we offer all of our customers the option of purchasing a Collision Damage Waiver (CDW), providing the ability to reduce the excess on the insurance in the event of damage.
