Which vehicle to choose ?

Before planning your road trip, choosing the right vehicle is imperative.

Opt to rent a vehicle that fits not only your budget but also provides sufficient interior space. Ensure that the trunk size is adequate for your luggage. A well-equipped car would also be a plus: a connected GPS and cruise control will be useful.

To reduce the costs of your road trip, choosing temporary transit could be a good alternative to classic rentals. This way, you can benefit from a new vehicle and 24/7 assistance at an advantageous price.
