Fall is the perfect time to take weekend trip and get out of the city to enjoy nature and reconnect as a family. The weather is cool and crisp, the kids have a few school breaks, and the foliage is something to behold. When planning your fall getaway, the first step is to choose a destination and the second is to book your rental car, van, or SUV. Fortunately, your friends at Empire Rent A Car can help you with both steps. Here is a list of our favorite weekend getaway destinations near NYC.
No matter how seasoned a traveler you may be, adding kids to the equation makes traveling more complicated. The sheer amount of luggage and gear that you need to bring, combined with the numerous logistical details to work out, often makes traveling with kids difficult and stressful. To reduce stress and spend more time enjoying your family trip, plan ahead and rent a kid-friendly vehicle. Empire Rent A Car has an extensive fleet of vehicles with plenty of space and comfort features that your family will love. Here are the top 3 for you to consider on your next trip to NYC.
You’ve been considering all your car rental options, and you keep wondering whether that full-size SUV rental is a good fit for your family. “Does it have enough space for all of us to ride comfortably and to store our luggage?” “Will it make our road trip simpler?” “Do we need or want the extra luxury?” Well, let our team at Empire Rent A Car answer all of those questions with a resounding “Yes!”—and here’s why.
When you’re in a new city and you need to get around, renting an SUV instead of a car can be very appealing. SUV’s offer more seating, more power, and an extra hint of luxury that you don’t get in a basic rental car. However, many people opt for the car because the cost of renting an SUV is often higher. At Empire Rent A Car, we offer midsize SUVs at competitive rates so that you can travel in style and comfort without breaking the bank.
Let’s face it, it doesn’t matter what time of year it is, NYC always has the best and most unique events around. This fall won’t be any different! It’s a great time of year to get outside and enjoy the crisp, fresh air before it turns bitter cold. You can take public transportation to some events, but for others you might want to rent a car and take a day trip. Whether you choose to experience many or just a few of the happenings around New York this fall, Empire Rent A Car has just what you need. Here are some ideas to get your fall itinerary started.
