Renting a car can be a source of stress rather than joy. Having your own transport has becomeincreasingly popular as regular overseas holidays make holidaymakers seek alternatives to the hotel swimming pool,the beach and the confines of many Mediteranean resorts.
The Institute of Advanced Motorists has some good advice about hiring abroad fromthe danger of hidden costs to the need to check the car's condition. Remember that if you hire a car in some counties you as the driver are still responsible for faults such asdefective tyres and brakes.
