What kind of rental car should I get for Yokohama?

Having your own set of wheels in Yokohama will give you more freedom to go wherever you want. Maybe you're planning to leave the big city behind, explore the country laneways, and go where the wind blows. If that's the case, collect the keys to one of our SUVs and have a look at the active volcanos in the surrounding area. If you'd prefer to experience the bright lights of the city, go for something small. Dashing around bumper-to-bumper traffic will be a lot less stressful in an economy or compact car.

Should I get a luxury rental car in Yokohama?

You'll be pleased to hear that there's an impressive variety of luxurious vehicles to rent in Yokohama. What you end up going with depends on how much you're willing to spend and what you plan to do. Specialty vehicles are all about mod cons and comfort. If you feel like splashing out, why not go for a fully kitted-out SUV, or perhaps a cushy mid-size sedan? Alternatively, if you just need something to get from A to B as efficiently as possible, stick with a versatile compact vehicle (or something else that's unlikely to break the bank).
