Journeys : Dec10 Jan11
December 2010 / January 2011 67 With the summer holidays fast approaching, many families in Tasmania will embark on a driving holiday – and leave the family car behind. Thrifty CEO Bryn McGoldrick says that families need to pick the right car for their getaway, plan their trips to ensure a safe and enjoyable jour ney – and book early. “This is a time of year when many families will spend more time in the car than normal, and if they are leaving Tasmania they are likely to hire a car for the trip,” Bryn McGoldrick says. “It’s important you get the right car for the size of your family – the difference between a perfect getaway and a disastrous holiday could well be the comfort of your family or group while travelling. Thrifty offers a w ide range of vehicles from sedans, SUVs, 4WDs, station wagons and people movers. We aim to ensure our customers get an affordable vehicle that suits their needs,” he says. Planning the journey in advance is cr ucial. You’ ll probably be driving on unfamiliar roads, so a good option is to hire a GPS unit from Thrifty. The helpful staff at the local Thrifty office can help with infor mation and advice. Thrifty operate Garmin GPS units throughout Australia but at this time of year, they do need to be pre-booked. Whether you use a Thrifty GPS or any other device, make sure you enter your coordinates before you start dr iving – it’s unsafe to adjust the device on the move. Thrifty wishes all RACT members a safe and happy Christmas break. To find out more or make a booking, call RACT Travelworld on 1300 368 111 or visit your local branch. *Terms and conditions apply.
