Sure, you can explore East Montpelier without wheels. But with so much to see and do, having one will definitely make your trip much easier. If you're hoping to venture out into some nature, choose something with a little extra power. A full-size car or an SUV could be exactly what you need. A smaller car, like a mini or a compact, is a great choice if you're only taking shorter trips.
First of all, there's a huge variety of both economy and luxury rental vehicles on offer in East Montpelier. What you go for depends on your budget as well as what you plan to do. Prestige vehicles offer the best in comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not pick an SUV with all the bells and whistles, or perhaps a cushy mid-sized sedan? On the other hand, if you just need something to get you from A to B at the cheapest price possible, you're better off choosing a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that won't blow your budget).
