"CAR OR TRAIN?" - Q4


Question 4:

How many people are traveling in your group? What are their ages?

The more people in your group, the more affordable a rental car becomes. And if you're traveling long distances with children, you may find a car handy for the privacy and luggage space that it offers. (Just make sure the car is big enough. Anything smaller than a VW Golf or an Opel Kadett won't have much room for luggage.)

Still, don't automatically assume that a rental car is cheaper than the train when several people are traveling together. Visitors from outside Europe can buy Europass and Eurailpass "saver passes" that offer savings of about 15% for groups of two to five people, and national railroads often have their own "family passes" and group discounts.

Need a car in Europe?

If you live outside the EU, a tax-free Renault or Peugeot tourist lease can be cheaper than renting. Minimum driver age is 18, there' s no upper age limit, and rates include insurance.
