Wondering why no rental car in places where it is dificult without car

Jump to last reply

Get it why people do not want and are often better without rental car - Boston, NYC - primarily cities with good public transit. But wondering about travelers who really want to do more difficult destinations without a rental car. Is it cost, philosophy, no license, discomfort with driving in unfamiliar places, medical issues?

And wondering about how this went and whether or not so much time was spent making bus/train/camel connections as to be a burden. In my area, thinking of a couple of recent threads on navigating Cape Cod without a car - something that would be challenging and time consuming at its best.

Acknowledging that my curiosity is stronger since I actually like driving, always rent a car, and consider getting lost on vacation almost inevitable. And generally find buses time-consuming and annoying,

Keeping an open mind, however - so if you are a non-car renter when traveling, tell me why and how it worked out.
