Traveling by car is a great way to experience convenience and
privacy. However, just like with any means of transportation, traveling by
car will not always give in to your advantage. It can also have some
disadvantages, which we will be tackling in this post, to give you a better
idea of what you are likely to experience when traveling by car.
To give you a more detailed explanation, below are some of the
pros and cons of using a car while traveling, in order for you to
determine if using a car is going to be the right choice or not.
If you are traveling using your own car, then you are
guaranteed to have the best flexibility while on the road. This is
because you can plan where you want to go even with short notice,
which you can’t normally do in case you want to travel by train or a
bus, because you know that you have to book your tickets in advance
Cargo security is also another advantage. If you have a car
to use for traveling, you can bring your bags, suitcases, and other
stuff with you securely, which is again something you cannot do if
you are on a public transport.
When you have a car, you can prevent delays, which often happen when
you are in a public transport. You own your time while on the road
because you are not relying on anyone to get you to your destination, but
yourself. In short, you are in total control when you are on the road, and
traveling with your car.
- If you are traveling with a child or an elderly person, traveling by car
will give more convenience & comfort for both the child/elderly and the
companions. This is because you want to avoid any possible hassles that
may cause some issues with you and the co-passengers.
These are the different advantages that you can likely get when you are
traveling by car. Now, let us see some of the possible disadvantages for you to
somehow determine if it is really best for you to travel by car.
Traveling by car can be costly, considering the constant hike in
Driving long hours can be exhausting.
Traveling by car in a place you have never been can also cause
delays, especially when you are not familiar with the roads.
So far, these are the only disadvantages that you can get when you
choose to travel by car.
To bring or not to bring a car will rely on a situational basis. Normally, if you are an
all-adult group traveling together, and everyone can endure the pressure and
discomfort of being with other people while traveling, then traveling using public
transport can be an option for you. But if you are traveling with children, elderly,
and you want more privacy and comfort, then traveling by car will be your best
On the other hand, travelling by car is not very comfortable for a driver.
He cannot relax, he has to be careful all the time. Vehicles are forced to
stay in traffic jams, it is also very uncomfortable. Passangers can sleep or
doing what thay want. When driver is very tired, he can be as dangerous
on the road as drunk driver.
Travelling by car is dangerous, too. There are many crashes on the roads
and we should be very careful and sensible. There are many people, who
want to drive after alcohol, they cause a lot of accidents. In my opinion
they are irresponsible and immature and people who drink and drive
should lose their driving licence for life.
To sum up, if we have money and remember about politness, patience
and responsable driving even when we have problems with finding a
parking space and we get nervous- we can enjoy driving for many years,
