Give yourself a break!

In the hectic world we live in, it is essential to take a break every now and again! We need to give our mind, as well as our bodies a chance to relax and more importantly, recover. We are often so caught up in our day-to-day routine and daily chores that we can lose touch with our bodies and not realise how physically and mentally exhausted we may actually be. So if you do one thing this summer, give yourself a break. Take the time off work and escape to a destination opposite from your norm. The most important thing is to keep your holiday as stress-free as possible. This will ensure that you get full benefit from being away, and you will feel like a new person post-break! So hop on a plane, then hop straight in a car from Airport Car Hire, drive to your accommodation and simply soak up your surroundings!



We recommend somewhere by the sea with plenty of sunshine. Breathing in the fresh sea air will do wonders for invigorating you. And because we use our senses to associate things, every time you hear or smell the ocean you will think of your holiday and should feel more invigorated. The sun can also have more benefits than just a glowing tan. It can help improve your mood as well as enable your body to use vitamin D more efficiently. Relax your mind, and leave the stresses of work behind. Physical fatigue can generally be alleviated with some rest and a good night’s sleep, and don’t be afraid to sleep in, however, mental exhaustion requires a longer recovery time. A holiday is the perfect way to do this. This will enable you think more clearly and be more productive upon your return to work.



Finally, take full advantage of your surroundings. Your car rental is ideal for hassle-free exploring. Delve beneath the surface of the country’s’ culture. Eat traditional food, visit magnificent sites, just enjoy every minute of it! As soon as you have decided on your destination, book your car rental with us and avail of the best prices on the market!

The spectacular views and abundance of things to do along the way, is what makes this route so appealing, however the options are endless.

It also allows you to give children a change of scenery and keep them entertained, while visiting well known sights and areas of interest. Playgrounds are a free and convenient way of burning off energy while getting in some exercise! Why not give the kids a map, or get them to create their own before the journey? You can trace the route together and point out interesting landmarks so that they will have a sense of where they are going.

Stock up on plenty of snacks and drinks while travelling by car too! It is much more convenient and cheaper than stopping for nibbles.

Here are 5 simple reasons why everyone needs to visit Australia!

For the landscape

The Australian landscape is extremely varied. The rainforests at the peak of Cape Tribulation are among the oldest in existence, while the red sands of the outback offer miles of untouched desert. The lush green acres of the state of Victoria and Tasmania show off forestry to rival the nearby islands of New Zealand.

For the beaches

The beaches of Australia are an obvious draw, with approximately 50,000 kilometres of coastline and more than 80% of the population living within 100km of the coast, Australians are all about the beach.

The world famous sands of Bondi and Coogie in Sydney are must see if you want to try your luck on a surfboard while ticking off your beach barbeque experience.

For the weather

Australia’s famously clear weather is probably one of the main reasons so many people want to visit the country and the sunny outlook seems to rub off on the local mind-set. Average temperatures in Sydney sit at around 26C in summer, while Perth rises as high as 30C.


For the outdoor activities

Australians love to be outside, and with the brilliant weather, who can blame them? Surfing is as synonymous with Australia as crocodiles and boomerangs, but it is not just the standard version Aussies are fond of, there is also windsurfing, kite surfing and even sand boarding.

Hiking, climbing or trekking the Blue Mountains just north of Sydney are popular choices with the adventurers, while water babies will enjoy white water rafting down the fierce rapids of the Tully River in the surrounds of ancient rainforest.

For the wildlife

Australian wildlife is a fascinating, feral law unto itself. Famously home to 10 of the world’s 11 most deadly species including the taipan snake, box jellyfish and funnel web spider, not to mention all those salt water crocodiles.

The country is also home to some of the cutest animals: koala bears, sugar gliders and bilbies will melt your heart. Then there are the just plain strange: echidna, cassowary and platypus, although our favourites are still the endlessly energetic kangaroos.
