India with its pervading taxi and cab culture still needs some time to adjust to the concept of self-drive rental cars. But once you have discovered the thrill of self-drive rentals, you’ll never return to sitting in the passenger seat of a taxi or cab.
There are a number of reasons that prove self-drive rentals are way better than cabs, with a number of the main ones being:
1.Privacy: Weekends and late evenings are the only times that we get to spend with family and friends. Imagine the irritation of having an unknown driver snoop over all of your conversations, smirk at your dilemmas, and laugh at your jokes. This gets even worse once you rent a cab for a tour outside the city spanning one or two of days. And if you’re travelling as a couple, you can see the romance go out the taxi cab window as you wave it goodbye and say hello to Mr. Driver.
2.Safety: Another driver problem in India is that of safety. Drivers are one of the least paid and most overworked people in India. So you can be sure that most of the times, your driver is exhausted, tired and not totally on top of his senses. Apart from that, it’s almost a routine for us to inform the taxi driver to not drive rash, which simply goes to prove how much safer you can be when you are in your own self-drive rental car.
3.Freedom: Going for a self-drive rental car takes out the fuss and irritation of a trip by giving you the liberty to be your own boss. You can get out of the house later than you planned, leave a place early, and stop as and when you please when you are driving your own rental car. There is absolutely no hurry because you do not need to deal with a running meter and a driver who needs to be in different places the moment he’s free of you.
4.Cost Benefits: Apart from all the conveniences of self-drive rental cars, another major point which is in favour of the self-driven rental vs a cab/taxi is the cost. Contrary to the popular belief that rental cars are expensive, we provide self-drive cars at least price than what a taxi or cab company will charge you. For e.g., a self-drive car for 240 kilometer or a full day is available for almost about Rs. 2300, while even the cheapest cab will charge Rs. 3000 for the same distance and time.
So it’s time to ditch the cab and go for a self-drive rental car. Make a choice from our car range and you will never be calling for a cab again!
