10 Reasons to Hire a Vehicle at Christmas

Posted on by Whitgift Hire Team

That time of the year is upon us yet again; Christmas, with all its festive highlights, is here. Those highlights range wildly from the great, namely in the form of a cracking dinner and awesome presents, to the downright horrid, as anyone who’s been caught in the manic Christmas shopping crowds will attest!


However, getting everything sorted out on time so you can relax and enjoy the festive season is a very stressful experience for a lot of people. Therefore, to help you out this Christmas we’re going to show you why hiring a vehicle for the holidays can make your life so much easier.

1. Collect Discounted Furniture and Technology

Following the Christmas period, the sales hit, and they hit hard. Expect massive discounts on all of last season’s furniture, as well as on various tech appliances such as televisions, computers and various other gadgets. If you didn’t get it for Christmas, now’s the time to go pick it up, and your hired vehicle will be indispensable in doing so.

2. Embark on a Christmas Holiday!

Christmas holidays have never been easier than with a hire car from Whitgift Hire. Avoid the horrors of the public transport timetable during Christmas by taking matters into your own hands. Make this Christmas a magical one with a holiday not to forget!

3. Christmas Shopping Made Easy

We all know that getting the Christmas shopping in is a bit of a nightmare, but it doesn’t have to be. With a hired vehicle, you can get to and from the shops on your own terms and have all the space you need to get your shopping home, too.

4. Visit Your Friends and Family

Visiting your loved ones over the Christmas period is an event in itself, one not to be taken lightly. Hiring a car makes the trips between family members and friends easy, providing you with your very own Santa’s sleigh to deliver everyone’s presents!

5. Pick Up Your Christmas Tree

As the cornerstone of any family’s home Christmas decorations, the tree is absolutely essential. If you still haven’t picked one up, your vehicle hire will come in handy when shopping for and collecting your Christmas tree.

6. Avoid the Ghastly Public Transport Crowds and Costs

Delays and extortionate ticket fares, as well as the throngs of people all moodily trying to get somewhere to celebrate Christmas is enough to spoil what should be a joyous time. Hire a car out instead and avoid the ghastly public transport mess altogether!

7. A More Suitable Vehicle for Long Distance Travelling

Cramped coaches and awkward changes from one train to another make long distance travelling over the Christmas period very tiring. Vehicle hire, on the other hand, is a far more suitable method of travel. Your route will be direct and you can stop when you like for refreshments, and not to the schedule’s say-so.

8. A Christmas Present to Yourself

Ever wanted to drive the faster, smoother, more attractive car of your dreams, even for just a short time? With vehicle hire, you can do exactly that. Also, by removing your normal, everyday car from the equation, the Christmas period will feel extra special.

9. Make Budgeting Issues a Thing of the Past

Cars are often a godsend to those who have them at Christmas, but budgeting to own one outright can prove too much of a strain for many people. By hiring a vehicle when you need one, rather than owning your own, you don’t have to worry about monthly insurance costs, road tax or maintenance costs – simply hire the car, drive and return.

10. Do Christmas in Luxury and Style

With an array of vehicles to choose from, you can ride out Christmas and New Year in style with a luxury car of your choice. Impress your friends and family as you cruise around taking in the sights and sounds of the festive season. All hire vehicles come professionally maintained and cleaned, meaning you’ll have no trouble throughout your hire period.
