Research Your Destination

This is a huge first step towards making this decision. Is there public transit? What is the traffic like? Are there safety considerations to think about when taking public transit? There really are a lot of things to consider, and you’ll want to take advantage of every resource available to you. Go online and do some research. What are the reviews for the public transit at your destination? Did people experience being stuck in traffic for hours when they had rented a vehicle to use during their trip? Are there crime issues like pickpockets to consider when using public transportation? Ultimately, you’re going to want to maximize the time you have at your destination, and avoid potentially unsafe situations, so be sure that you do lots of research before deciding how you’ll get around. Every destination is different.

What Are The Options Available To You

More important to consider than you might think! It’s important to know what methods of transportation are available to you at your destination. There are often many options to consider. Public transportation is always a big one, and you’ll want to be sure that you take a look at the efficiency of the public transit system, before firmly deciding to go that route. Renting a vehicle is always something that you’ll want to consider. If the conditions are ideal, this can be one of the best ways to explore any destination. If you’re staying in a city, is it better to consider getting around by foot? If the places you wish to see are all close enough together, you’ll definitely want to consider getting around by foot. A lot of cities will have other alternative methods as well, such as bicycles. This is a great way to get around, if it’s feasible, and in addition to walking, it’s also a great way to enjoy your destination without leaving a footprint.

Do You Plan To Venture Out Of Town?

This is a very important consideration. Having a rental vehicle will be one of the major considerations that you’ll want to make, if you’re deciding to venture outside of the city that you’re staying in. Bear in mind though, that there are some other options to consider! Taking a tour to any external destination will surely provide you with all of the transportation you’ll need to enjoy the places on the itinerary. There are also often bus systems that are available for travelers who wish to leave town for the day – just be sure that you know when the last pick-up is, so you don’t get stuck! In a lot of cases, there are also train systems that that can take you in and out of town, and are generally very convenient and cost effective options. Again, be sure that you’re aware of when the last pick-up time is, so that you can make it back to your root destination.

How Much Money Do You Plan To Spend?

Transportation can be a very costly part of any trip, and it’s important to take everything into consideration, and make the best available choice, prior to making a final choice. Renting a vehicle is likely to be the most expensive option. You have to pay for the vehicle itself, fuel, and in a lot of cases, you will also have to pay for parking. If it’s essential to accomplishing everything you want to on your trip, then definitely rent a vehicle. It’s very liberating to have your own vehicle while you travel, for sure. If you’re staying in town though, it’s likely not practical. You can often purchase daily and weekly transit passes in just about any city, for very reasonable prices so keep that in mind when you’re deciding how much you want to spend on travel, while at your destination.

Do What You Think You Will Enjoy The Most

This is the most important part of any trip, and it’s important that you get the most enjoyment possible out of your experience, so be sure that you choose whichever method makes the most sense for you, and leaves you feeling the most comfortable. Enjoy exploring your new destination!
