Are you planning a ski vacation this winter? Winter in Big Sky, Montana, is a great way to experience all of the nature that the state offers. However, Journey Rent-A-Car encourages you to book your travel and trip details as soon as possible. This article explains four reasons why.
1. Rental Cars Are in High-Demand and Low-Supply
By now, you’re probably aware of the supply chain issues our country is experiencing. In particular, a semiconductor chip shortage has impacted all kinds of industries, especially electronics. As everyone knows, today’s cars are big computers, which means the auto industry can’t fully supply consumer demand. For that reason, car dealerships and rental companies across the country sometimes work with less inventory and higher prices.
Journey Rent-A-Car has an incredible inventory selection of rental vehicles. Still, we don’t like to take chances when it comes to customer experience. If you wait until your plane lands to check out our airport car rentals, you may have waited too long. For that reason, we recommend booking your rental vehicle along with securing the rest of your winter in Big Sky trip.
2. More People Traveling Domestically
Due to the pandemic, people are choosing domestic travel over international travel. Sometimes, that means tourist destinations may have more visitors. The best way to ensure you don’t run into any snags is to book your trip well in advance. That way, you can be as confident as possible that you can get reservations, onboard an over-booked flight, and choose the travel dates you want.
3. Fuel Prices Are Expected to Increase
Some economists say petroleum costs will increase this winter. Natural gas and gasoline costs are both expected to rise. You’ve probably already noticed that at the gas pump yourself. Booking air travel now might save you from higher costs by waiting longer. The same may be true with other parts of your winter in Big Sky trip (or any trip, for that matter). Where you can take advantage of current prices and potentially save money down the road, you should.
4. Make the Most of Your Chosen Experiences
Are you more intentional about where you spend your money, what you choose to do with your time, and where you decide to travel? We think that’s wise. When you commit to taking a trip, we encourage you to be strategic, choose somewhere unique, and experience it fully. Winter in Big Sky truly offers a fantastic experience, the awe of nature’s beauty, activities that deliver adventure and fun, and people as good as they come. Rent one of our SUVs or vans and bring the entire family for a trip they’ll never forget.
