Here are the best ways to help you save more money:
Sure, you can do Newcastle without renting a vehicle. But with so much to see and do here, having one would definitely make your trip more fun and convenient. If you plan to head out of the city and into the countryside, choose a car with some power. A full-size or mid-size SUV will take you to the surrounding tablelands in roomy style. Planning to spend most of your getaway in the city center? A compact or mini car is the way to go. Driving through narrow lanes and squeezing into tight parking spaces will be a cinch with one of these.
You'll be pleased to hear that there's a huge variety of luxurious rental vehicles in Newcastle. What you end up going for will depend on your funds and the activities you've got planned. Specialty vehicles are hard to beat if you're all about comfort and class. If you're splashing out, why not pick a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-size sedan? Alternatively, if you're just after something to get from A to B as efficiently as possible, maybe go for a no-frills compact vehicle (or something else that won't burn a hole in your pocket).
