This is not specifically a WDW question. We’re thinking of spending next Thanksgiving in DC. It’s a shame we’ve never taken the kids there (and, added bonus, I won’t have to see DMIL on Thanksgiving!).
It’s about a 425 mile drive from the Boston area to DC. I’ve heard of some people renting cars for long trips. The car that we’d take is the Toyota Sienna (DS15 and DD10 need to be in separate rows for rides longer than 1 hour or we’d end up leaving them both at a rest area in New Jersey). We’ve taken longer car trips but now the van has 100,000-plus miles on it and is less reliable than it was 10 years ago. So, I’m wondering, should I rent a car?
Why do people rent if they own a car? Is it more economical than putting miles on your own car? Are there other reasons?
