Renting a car is the best way to get around when traveling abroad. It gives you the freedom to explore the country on your own and to take a break whenever you need to. As long as you prepare and plan for such a trip you’ll be infinitely more comfortable than you would have been on a guided tour.
It’s important that you find a car that’s comfortable and that you’re able to drive as well as to have the proper documents with you.
2021 Subaru Outback
This is a revamping of a model that came out last year meaning that it’s an improvement on it. It has enough room for five passengers and enough cargo space to cover the needs of a long trip. Before embarking on such a trip you should obtain an international driving permit for which you can apply here.
The car also comes with an infotainment system that modern drivers are used to by now. It includes smartphone integration and the use of Apple CarPay and Android Auto. Subaru Outback also has an emergency braking system and a rear-seat reminder.
2020 Chevy Sonic
Chevy Sonic is a great car for long rides since it’s made to be supportive and comfortable, which is something you can appreciate after hours behind the wheel. It can take five passengers and a driver and has standard infotainment features to pass the time while you’re on the road.
It comes with almost 15 cubic feet of trunk space which is enough even if you don’t pack lightly. The car is a bit light on the safety features compared with what’s expected of a modern high-end car, but it’s still safe and reliable on the road.
2021 Kia Soul
The overall aesthetic of Kia Soul is a bit boxy but you’ll be surprised as to how much room it can provide once you’re inside. It has supportive seating in both rows, and plenty of legroom as well. The center of gravity is rather high due to how the car is designed but you won’t notice it on the road.
The car has a high-end infotainment system that can be integrated with your smartphones. It also features a rear seat reminder which can be quite useful if you’ve been on the road for a while and get sleepy.
2021 Toyota Corolla
This is a redesign of the Toyota Sedan and it has been quite popular with rental agencies across the world. It comes with standard safety and entertainment options as well as a traffic sign recognition which is still considered to be novel.
The car reaches 30 mpg and 38 mpg on the open road which makes it a good option for driving across the country you’re planning to visit. The truck is quite small so keep in mind you’ll need to calculate and plan your gas stops. It rides smoothly and comfortably enough to be used on long trips and on harsh terrain, as well.
