Spring has arrived and there is no better way to usher in the sunshine than a drive in the best convertible car rental Melbourne has to offer. If you have been thinking of driving a convertible, it’s not because you’re looking to just get from Point A to Point B, but driving a convertible is more about the journey than the destination. You keep dreaming about driving that MG or Triumph convertible you remember from your youth, but you just can’t justify the expense or hassle of having a second car sitting in the driveway for the occasional drive.
So why not rent a convertible car? It can save you money, especially if you don’t use a the car regularly and you get access to a modern and reliable convertible sports car. Here are 6 reasons why renting a convertible car is more practical than owning one.
1. Freedom of the Open Road
A convertible car is a perfect drive for the open road. Picture yourself sitting beside someone special, the roof down, the sun shining and the open road ahead. When you’re cruising along, heading to the coast or to the hills, you get the feeling that “nothing is gonna stop me”. No other car can give you that powerful feeling of freedom. Renting a convertible makes a lot of sense, it is an easy and a cost-effective way to experience the open road.
2. The Ideal Weekend Escape
Driving a convertible provides you with the ideal escape from Melbourne. There is no better destination for that weekend escape than the Great Ocean Road, Yarra Valley, Phillip Island or the Alpine Way. Driving alongside that special person, you can create a memorable driving experience and incorporate great dining and accommodation along the way. So, you don’t have to own a convertible car to experience the weekend escape, renting a convertible is the perfect alternative.
3. When You Can’t Take it with You
Even if you have a convertible in your driveway, you can’t always take it with you when you travel, especially when you are travelling overseas. If you are travelling to Melbourne, you should consider visiting some of the iconic tourist attractions, the Great Ocean Road, the penguins at Phillip Island or the wineries in the Yarra Valley. What better way to get there than in a convertible car?
4. A Safe and Reliable Drive
Modern convertible cars are safer than ever. The Mazda MX-5 is not only the world’s top-selling two-seater sports-car, it also has a 5 Star ANCAP rating, the maximum rating that it could receive. Renting a convertible car provides access to a more modern fleet of convertibles that are safer and more reliable than the classic convertibles of the 60s and 70s.
5. Try Before You Buy
Owning a convertible car is not for everyone, but renting is. You may find the car does not quite suit all of your daily needs and it can be expensive to buy a convertible car, only to find that you have to sell it for less than what you paid for it. So, renting a convertible for an extended period of time makes a lot of sense, it allows you to assess the suitability for your daily needs. And don’t forget, that even if it doesn’t suit, then renting remains a viable option when you want to have that special drive or weekend away.
6. Driving a Convertible is Fun
When is the last time you saw an unhappy person driving around in a convertible? Driving a convertible is the kind of fun that doesn't rely on speed or handling. In fact, even driving a convertible slowly can be engaging. It will put a great big smile on your face, so create that opportunity by renting, ensuring that a beautiful day is amplified by a nice drive in a convertible.
