5 Reasons Why Self-Drive Cars are better than Hiring a Cab for a Road Trip

We all have been, at one point or another, stuck with a cab and its driver which has been obnoxious for some or the other reason. Some of the common woes of the people who take cabs regularly include, unhygienic or poorly maintained cars, bad attitude of driver, high cab charges, wrong routes, and unnecessary delays. To avoid all of these problems, a great option for commuters or travelers, is to utilize the self-drive cars options available in most cities. This is especially true when you are heading for a road trip and may need the cab for extended period of time. Many great road trips and vacations have been ruined due to the many of the inconveniences mentioned earlier. So, here are the five reasons which will explain a lot about how self drive cars are better than taxis.

5 Advantages of Self-Drive Car Rental

  1. Hygiene
  2. Privacy
  3. Safety and Security
  4. Flexibility
  5. Affordability

1. Hygiene


Hygiene is one of the most important issues for many of us these days. And especially in the times of a pandemic, it is actually very important for us to maintain hygiene at all levels and every possible way. If we hire a taxi, it is not always possible for us to check if it has been sanitized properly, and the fear of coming in contact with virus persists in us. However, when we opt for a self-drive car, we are aware if the car is sanitized or not, and even if it is not sanitized properly, we can carry out the process ourselves. 

2. Privacy

Imagine a driver whom you have known for some hours, is listening to all your conversations that you are having with your partner or friends, or even family. In some of the cases he even looks at all of you through the mirror, and participates in your conversation. And, if you are traveling to a distant place and taking the car for two to three days, you have to talk to the driver every now and then, and have to be concerned about his whereabouts, and so many things. On the other hand, if you take a self-drive car, you can have the entire time with your family or friends or partner. There will be no one else who will be watching you or listening to your conversations and taking part or laughing on your jokes. You can be yourself completely and do not even be bothered about where the driver is staying, what is he eating and if he is always around the car. 

3. Safety and Security

One of the biggest challenges faced by the drivers is lack of sleep. Most of them stretch their working hours and that is the reason sometimes they even meet with accidents. When you hire a cab, there are chances that the driver hasn’t slept well and you cannot find it out. However, while you take a self-drive car, you can be very sure that you are taking 6-8 hours of sleep and you can drive without a problem. There will also be not a problem of rash driving. The steering will be in your hands and you can decide the speed at which you will drive the car.

4. Flexibility

As you hire a cab, you will have to rely on the driver a lot. Even if you want to stop in mid of your trip to buy a bottle of water, you will have to tell your driver about it. You need to call the driver before you start the trip and discuss the time when he can pick you up. When you stay at a hotel, you will have to make plans to explore the new place keeping the convenience of the driver in mind. However, one of the benefits of self drive car rentals is that you can actually enjoy the freedom of being your own boss and drive wherever and whenever you want. You do not have to think about the driver and can stop at many places to explore the area. If you want to extend your trip, you can do that without even thinking about anyone else’s convenience. There is no running meter and no extra cost for a driver. 

5. Affordability

As compared to a cab, a self-drive car is much affordable, especially if you are taking the service from Revv. One of the Revv car benefits is that it is available at pocket-friendly rates. You can take sanitized car subscription from Revv at INR 339 per day. You can even extend the subscription for one month. If you take a cab, it will either charge you per kilometer or on hourly basis, and you will end up paying way more than a self-drive car.

These five points are enough to understand how Revv cars are affordable, safe and convenient. The process of booking the car and using it is very easy. You can choose the car of your preference and book it with mentioning the place and time as well as specifying the time period for which you need the car, which will be followed by paying the booking amount. You can then receive the car at your doorstep or pick it up from the designated centre. You can enjoy the self-drive experience, and once you are done, you can return it to Revv. The cars are properly sanitized after receiving it from the clients and before delivering it to the next client.
