Car Share for College Students for the Holidays

December means that the holiday season is in full swing- with Thanksgiving under out belts and Christmas, Hanukkah, the New Year, etc., there is much to look forward to! For many, the holiday season means traveling to visit relatives or making room for relatives in or homes. With extra people, places to be and things to do, car share is a great option to get us all from point A to B!

Day Trips to Visit Relatives using car share for holiday with relatives

The holiday season is best spent surrounded by people we love. Not all relatives are plane rides away, but rather a few hour car ride away! If you’re a college student, rely on public transportation or otherwise don’t have your own set of wheels, you’re in luck. Programs like uhaulcarshare make it possible for us all to get around. What’s a better season to plan a day trip to visit friends and family and enjoy the best of the holiday season together.

An Extra Car, for Extra People

Not that you mind lending your vehicle to loved ones, but sometimes you both might need it at the same time. Car share comes in handy in this situation because you can get an extra set of wheels, hourly or daily, as you need. Another great perk about programs like uhaulcarshare is that, insurance is included! Plan ahead and get the whole package- wheels, insurance, and even a gas card.

To the Airport, Please

Another commonality for college students is traveling to the airport to get back home. If there isn’t a shuttle, subway, bus or other means of transportation available to or from your campus, you could be in a pinch. If you’re at a more rural college campus, ask a friend to drop you off at the airport with a car share program. When you can rent by the hour, it makes this an affordable option.

We’re hard pressed to think of a busier time for shopping! Car share is a great option for college students who don’t or can’t have a vehicle on campus. Gather your friends and enjoy a group shopping trip to the mall for your holiday presents. In addition, if you’re on the hunt for larger items, they may not fit in your vehicle when you’re ready to buy.
