Car hire could be best option
Sometimes the best way to travel in another country is to hire a car. By hiring a car you allow yourself a lot more freedom than having to rely on public transport or taxis. Public transport in foreign countries can sometimes be very uncomfortable and unreliable while the cost of taking a taxi on a long journey can often be comparable to the cost of hiring a car anyway.
There is also no denying the fact that having the luxury of a car to yourself is much more enjoyable while travelling; you're not subjected to the crazy driving of anyone just thinking about their next fare and small things like what music is played can make a big difference on a long journey. The freedom to make changes to a journey plan such as stopping at an idyllic area discovered along the route is priceless and can often be the most memorable parts of a holiday.
Avis and Hertz are two of the most recognisable car-rental operators. Both companies offer car hire services in a multitude of countries across the globe. Cars can be booked directly online before you reach your destination or alternatively both companies have a presence in many international airports and cars can be availed of there. Just make sure you know what side of the road you're supposed to be on before you leave the airport!
