Put Some Fun In Your Getaway With Car Hire

By Ben Reeves

Despite the fact that the purpose of a getaway is to relax and relieve yourself of duties, concerns as well as responsibilities, you get a lot more out of one by putting in a little bit of effort. In the example of those visiting Gran Canaria, car hire can make the difference from a varied and memorable time and the potential for boredom.

The Canary Islands are a particularly well-liked tourist destination for Northern Europeans, including Britons. It is an superb location to go for some winter sun because it is on the same latitude as the Sahara Desert but, as a Spanish island, has a European culture and menu which is at least vaguely familiar. Consequently, while even southern Europe gets cool and damp weather in winter, Gran Canaria gets simply glorious sunshine for the whole year.

For some, simply having good weather is enough. Those who favour the "sun, sea and sand" method of selecting a holiday destination will get all of that on Gran Canaria, with the added bonus that getting familiar foods is guaranteed and the local populous will speak a language which is widely known. Some, however, get bored of 14 days around the same pool area or on the same beach.

With the simple use of car hire, Gran Canaria could be your oyster. There is plenty to see and also do in the mountainous interior, the desert south and the stunning coastline with a number of excellent beaches. Rather than fighting for towel space on a resort beach, a quick trip in a borrowed vehicle could have you taking pleasure in miles of unspoilt beach with not a single other soul in sight.

Naturally, it is generally simple to achieve the same degree of liberty with public transport or taxis, but these are restricted because you cannot leave your possessions in them and they will not watch for you. If, for example, you locate that stretch of beach for yourself (which would be a small miracle if you were using public transport), getting back to the hotel again depends on when the next bus comes or when - if ever - you can flag down the next cab. You might find yourself with a very long walk back ahead of you.

With car hire, Gran Canaria and also her charming cities, great geography and wealth of opportunities for the tourist with a little bit of a sense of adventure are at your disposal. You can still get the sun, sea and sand, but you can also add other important aspects to your list, including "fun".
