"CAR OR TRAIN?" - Q5


Question 5:

If you're spending most of your time at a single destination, what will you be doing there?

Rental cars aren't cheap, and an idle car wastes money that could be spent on other travel pleasures.

Once you've reached your destination, will you be running errands and taking excursions? (This is likely to be the case if you've rented a cottage or villa in the countryside.) If so, you need a car.

If, on the other hand, you're just driving to a city or resort and parking the car for a week, you're better off taking the train.
