Here are some great reasons to have a car when on holiday in Corsica.

The question is: is it beneficial to have a car when on holiday in Corsica? If you’re debating whether or not you should hire a car during your trip, here are just a few reasons why we, at Corsican Places, think it’s a good idea… 

Reason #1 - A quick and easy transfer from the airport

When you’ve finally reached your holiday destination and you step off the plane and feel that welcoming wave of heat hit your skin, it’s safe to say that you can’t wait to get to your hotel or villa, grab your swimming gear and hit the pool. But sometimes, waiting for everyone to get on the coach can be frustrating – especially if you’re the first ones on! By hiring a car you can be away in no time, and you’ll be relaxing on the beach before you know it. 

Reason #2 – You can explore more, at the drop of a hat

Should the moment strike and you want to get out and about, you don’t have to worry about looking for a bus stop, trying to read the timetable and then hoping a bus will show up. You can all hop into the car and go wherever the moment takes you. Head off and find a beautiful paradisiacal beach you’ve read about or pop to the supermarket in record time to get some tasty breakfast treats. You can even head into the rugged and picturesque centre of Corsica to find some fabulous photo spots – the possibilities are literally endless.

Reason #3 – you can pack up all the things you need for the day

If you’re heading out for the day and don’t know exactly what you might need, you don’t have to worry about lugging it around with you all day as it can all go in the car. All your beach clobber, a delicious picnic, towels, bottles of water, toys for the kids – it can all go in the boot and is there whenever you need it (this makes for a great money saver too as you’re not buying the things you couldn’t carry when out and about).

Reason #4 – Corsican Places makes it really easy for you
