Why you should take a road trip instead of flying

If you have to travel somewhere, typically the first thing that comes to your mind is going to be flying - especially if the place that you're travelling to is quite far away.

However, let's talk about some of the benefits of taking a road trip instead of flying to your next holiday destination!

Less stress

Taking a road trip can be a lot less stressful than flying. Although flying definitely gets you there a lot quicker, there's a lot of stress involved with air travel, such as long lines at the airport, having to plan your time impeccably so that you're able to make flights, then there's also the issue of delays and then you perhaps have to be crammed into a tiny airplane seat for hours, which can be very uncomfortable, and you also lose out on a lot of time when traveling by air despite the fact that it's quicker.

Travel at your own pace

When traveling by car, you can go at your own pace unlike when traveling by plane, you can make stops if you want and you don't have to stick to a set schedule.

The other good thing about driving, is that if you're for example, renting a car from somewhere like Bayswater Car Rentals then really the only schedule that you have to keep is the one where you drop off the car at the next city, and those times can be really flexible, so you really can travel at your own pace and you don't have to worry about missing your connection.

You’ll see some great places

When driving instead of flying, the travel actually then can become part of the trip! You can, if you have time, stop at certain places that you have perhaps wanted to see for a while, but never had the chance to since you've previously opted to fly.

When traveling by car you get to see a lot more on the way than you do when flying. Of course, the view from an airplane is pretty spectacular, but often times - especially when traveling at night, you're not really going to see much until you start to descend, so when traveling by car you'll definitely get to see a lot more, and this can also be a fun part of the overall journey.

Of course it always depends on how far you have to travel, which travel option would be best for you, but taking a road trip is definitely a good option if it's available to you since it's easy, flexible, and can be fun if you plan it the right way, and it’s definitely a lot less stressful than hanging around in airports and on planes for hours on end!
