Road trips are fun, they give you a chance to take some time away from home and work with your other half or friends and to see somewhere new.
But what car should you choose for your big journey? There are so many hire car options out there that you can pretty much rent anything for a long weekend if you look hard enough.
What car you need does largely depend on where you’re going to go. An off-road adventure? Long distance motorway cruise? Just want to go fast? We’ve rounded up some of the best vehicles for all kinds of road trip experiences to help you make the most of it – don’t forget the snacks!
Best For Off Road Trippin’: Land Rover Discovery
Alright, we know that Land Rovers are supposed to be great at off-roading. That’s kind of what they’re designed for, but they’ve survived for so long because they’re great at creating vehicles which can handle rough terrain whilst offering a comfortable ride, with the Terrain Response system making it easy to go off the beaten track without hardly knowing it. Remember to open drinks on a flat part to avoid throwing them on yourself.
Best For Long Haul Comfort: Aston Martin DB9
If you’re going to rent a supercar for a road trip, it’s going to have to be comfortable. The best road trips are often the longest, and many supercars are built for speed and performance rather than comfort these days. But an Aston Martin is the perfect candidate for a comfortable ride across country. Aston pride themselves on comfort and style as well as performance, so you’ll get to ride in comfort AND look good doing it!
Best For First Impressions: Bentley GT Continental
The Bentley GT Continental. Even the name oozes class and style, making this the perfect supercar to hire for a first date or important business meeting where first impressions are everything. Roll up in this and you can be sure of a great first impression, as long as you don’t fall over when you get out of it. Or stall it. It’s on you, really.
Best For Adrenaline Junkies: Lamborghini Gallardo Sypder
Lambo’s are built for performance, as well as Italians working hard to make them look as outrageous as possible. With a 0-60 time of 4.1 seconds, this supercar is bound to get your motor running. An ideal road trip for this monster would be a track day to really stretch its legs and get your adrenaline pumping. One thing’s for sure, you definitely won’t want to give this supercar hire back at the end of the day!
