Advantages and disadvantages of hire car
A hire car is preferred by many visitors as it provides freedom to follow one’s own time table when visiting this beautiful culture rich country. However, there are also certain drawbacks. Traffic and undertaking a long distance drive on your own can take much of the pleasure out of your journey.
Despite the very good conditions in roadways, travelling is lethargic in most parts of the country due to congestion. Both private and public transportation systems take long to arrive at a certain destination. On the other hand a hire car provides you a more luxurious ride as opposed to a packed bus ride with several stops on the way.
