With so many incredible destinations and experiences waiting in Australia, making the most of them is essential. Deciding on the right travel arrangements is a vital part of this, and there's no better way to get the most out of your Aussie experience than road tripping.

Here are three reasons why you should hire a car in Australia today. 

1. Comfort

Having your own space is one of the leading factors in feeling comfortable. When sitting on a crowded bus, or trying to get settled in an aeroplane, it's easy to lose the excitement of seeing a new country out of frustration and awkwardness. It can soon leave you wishing that you'd hired a car from Melbourne airport as soon as you touched down.

With a car, you leave all these uncomfortable troubles behind. In sharing a vehicle with only your travel buddies, there's no need to be on edge imagining that embarrassing moment when you fall asleep on a stranger's shoulder. Instead, taking a nap while someone else drives has never been easier.

When it comes to music and entertainment, the privacy of your own hire car means you won't have to think twice when turning up the volume on your favourite song. Line up an epic road trip playlist and let it keep moods high for your journey ahead. 

A hire car allows you to wind down windows, adjust temperatures, converse as much as you want and relax in comfort while taking in the incredible sights of Australia.

2. Freedom

On holiday, the last thing you want is to race against the clock daily, rushing to catch planes or buses, or paying extra to take a taxi.

Hiring a car gives you freedom and the ability to organise your time to work for you. If you've had a big day, and catching a few hours extra sleep the next day sounds ideal, having a hire car gives you this choice. Or, if a last minute an opportunity comes up to go somewhere incredible, like the Atherton Tablelands, forget about stressing over organising how to get there. Instead, grab your gear and jump in the car.

You can even choose to get lost for a day if you'd like to try a different way of exploring. See what you can discover by chasing the roads that call to you. Having the freedom to make your own travel plans allows you to be spontaneous. 

A hire car brings flexibility to your journey that other modes of transport can't match.

3. Luggage

No one enjoys lugging bags around with them on their journey. 

Choosing to road trip around the East Coast of Australia minimises this painful part of travel. Instead of heaving luggage from location to location, finding it after bus trips or anxiously waiting for it after flights, you can load it into your hire car. While you'll still encounter the short distance from vehicle door to room, your arms and back will thank you every day for your choice. 

It also allows you to stock up on food and liquids for your travels as well, so you never have to worry about going hungry. Whether it's the ability to make a quick and easy trip to a local grocery store, or simply not having to carry it with you, by road tripping you no longer have to think about what you're taking with you every step of the way. 

Knowing you have a hire car waiting at the airport when you touch down means you can pack a little more. Bringing hiking gear, or a snorkelling mask, is much more appealing when you don't have to carry it around and allows you to make the most of the range of experiences available along the East Coast.
