5 things you will never get from economy rental car
Category : Cars, Transportation
When it comes to renting, your choice of a vehicle is usually influenced by certain practical matters. These are the price, safety, and comfort.
Depending on your priorities, you will put one of these factors over the others. For example, if you drive with a group of people or you have to stay overnight in a car, you will most certainly aim at the vehicle with a comfortable interior.
People who rent a car to drive with kids would prefer an auto with a higher safety rate. People who aren’t able or don’t want to spend much money on hiring a car, but still want to do so, will first look at its price.

Moreover, a 4×4 SUV, like Range Rover, is designed in such a way that it gives you the ability to drive on a rough terrain, mountainous, or wooded surface.
Keep in mind that if you choose an off-road vehicle to drive on a rough track, you must equip it properly. Extreme roads are as damaging for regular cars as for SUVs.
However, if you plan to drive short distances and park in well-organized lots, then the economy car will be a better option…
