Why Rent a Car for Your Next Trip Instead of Using Uber, Stamford, Connecticut

With the popularity of Uber® rising, you may wonder why you should bother with a car rental on your next vacation or business trip. Harbor View Auto Sales of Stamford, CT, doesn’t deny that Uber is a convenient way to get around town. However, if you plan on staying somewhere for an extended period, it makes more sense to rent a car. 

When deciding whether to rent a car or rely on Uber rides, you need to know how many stops you will make every day. Uber is convenient when you want a quick ride from the airport, but what if you want to explore the place where you’re staying? You’ll notice the price of taking Uber all over town starts to rack up substantially. The initial cost to rent a car will start to pale in comparison after just a few trips around town.

Plus, even if a driver will take you to run errands, they may not have any extra storage space since it’s their personal vehicle. When you rent a car, you can also go anywhere on a whim without having to wait for a ride.

If you plan on exploring the destination of your vacation or business trip, rent a car instead of relying on Uber. Harbor View Auto Sales of Stamford, CT would be happy to set you up with an affordable car rental, and no credit card is needed! You are more than welcome to use cash as your deposit. Check out their website or Facebook to see their selection of quality used cars available to rent.
