Christmas holidays aren’t the only time of the year when many travel for a vacation. Understanding the ins and outs of airport car rental and the roads during holiday periods, especially the silly season, can mean the difference between a disaster trip and a rejuvenating holiday. Below are just a few things to keep in mind.

Car hire

It is important to hire your vehicle early when it is holiday season – it doesn’t matter if it is a summer trip at the end of the year, or an Easter lunch with relatives far away, planning ahead is vital. By hiring early, you guarantee your choice of vehicle and will often save hundreds of dollars, particularly when hiring from a company situated at airports like Redspot Car Rentals.


Road trips, particularly with children, can be long and tedious. Keep both the kids and you happy by keeping them entertained with some simple games. Classics like Punch Buggy and I Spy will keep them busy on shorter trips and puzzle books and vehicle extras (like a DVD player) will entertain them while you drive when across longer distances.


Holiday traffic, whether it is for Christmas with the family or camping in Easter, can be frenzied and chaotic. You got everything done in time and even saved a little money along the way, but now you have to wade through the holiday rush. Don’t let road rage get the best of you. Instead, focus on getting to your destination happy and healthy.
