Travel represents an escape. Something different, dangerous, and romantic. That’s why we all love seeing the photos and reading the blog posts. We imagine ourselves right there, seeing it for ourselves. The colour of India. The charm of Paris. The tree tops and swinging jungle life of Borneo. Beats the grey suits of the Monday morning board room, don’t you think?
Of course, that one perfect selfie with circling Tiger sharks in the Gulf of Mexico doesn’t just happen. Nor does any traveller accidentally find themselves staring up in Rome’s Sistine Chapel or by happenstance find themselves covering their ears on a boat ride into the roaring basin of Niagara Falls. These things take planning.
Planning is everything. If you don’t plan, you risk missing out. Or worse, you risk disaster. Getting around in foreign countries isn’t always easy, with sometimes limited public transport or routes that don’t suit you. Renting a car can be a fast and easy solution, but make sure you do it right to avoid any nasty surprises. Here are some great tips on how to avoid a car rental nightmare abroad.
