Choosing a Car for a Mountain Road Trip

Mountain road trips are a great way to explore the natural beauty of your surroundings.

Before you hit the road, choosing a car that can handle the trip is important. Not every type of car is

equipped for mountain driving, and if you’re not careful, you could end up stuck on the side of
the road. This blog post will give you tips for choosing a car that can make the most of your
mountain road trip. Get quote for Mountain transportation.

1. The terrain

The first step is to think about the terrain you’ll be driving on. If you’re planning on sticking to
paved roads, any type of car will do (depending on the time of year). If you’re venturing off the
beaten path, you’ll need a car that can handle rough roads and potentially even some off-
roading.
In the mountains, you’re likely to encounter winding roads, steep inclines, and tight turns. Make
sure your car can handle these conditions by checking the specifications before you buy. If
you’re not sure what to look for, ask a salesperson and do some research online. There are
plenty of forums and articles that can give you advice on which cars are best for mountain
driving.

2. The time of year

Wintertime driving is far different from summer driving, and the conditions in the mountains
can change quickly. In the winter, you’ll need a car that can handle snow and ice. For example,
when traveling to Aspen for a ski trip, all-wheel drive is essential. Without it, you could easily
get stuck in the snow.
In the summer, the snow and ice are gone, but you’ll still need to be careful on the roads.
Mountain roads can be slippery, even when there’s no snow or ice. If it rains, the roads can
become even more dangerous.

3. The cost of insurance

In some cases, the cost of auto insurance can be a deciding factor in which car you choose. For
example, if you’re planning on driving an SUV on your mountain road trip, the cost of insurance
will be higher than if you were to drive a sedan. This is because SUVs are more likely to be
involved in accidents
, and they’re also more likely to roll over. Before you choose a car, get
quotes from several insurance companies to see how much the premium will be. You may be
surprised at how much the cost can vary from company to company.

4. The size of the car.

The size of the car is another important consideration, especially if you’re planning on doing any
off-roading. A smaller car might be able to maneuver around tight turns and narrow roads, but
it could get stuck if the terrain gets too rough. An SUV or a truck will be able to handle more
difficult terrain, but it might not be able to fit in some of the smaller parking spaces. And if
you’re planning on camping, you’ll need to make sure your car can fit all of your gear.

What If I Can’t Find the Perfect Car?

There are a few options if you can’t find the perfect car for your mountain road trip. The first is
to rent a car. This is a great option if you’re only planning on taking a trip for a week or two.
Another option is to buy an older car that’s been built for off-roading. These cars are usually
cheaper, and they’re more likely to be able to handle the tough terrain. Finally, you could hire a
professional driver
to take you on your trip. This is the most expensive option, but it’s also the
easiest.

Endnote

Mountain road trips can be a lot of fun, but you need to make sure you choose the right car for
the trip. Consider the terrain, the time of year, the insurance cost, and the car’s size before you
make your decision.

Every year, my wife and I make at least six visits to Vail to see our grandchildren. When travelling from Denver to Vail, we ALWAYS employ a intermountain express . They are consistently trustworthy and reasonable. Anyone and everyone should use the intermountain express , in my opinion.

Absolutely AMAZING This past weekend, my family visited a ski resort, so I set for a luxury mountain limousine service to pick them up in Vail and take them there. They were accurate! The dialogue was excellent! As they had previously promised, they called to discuss the pickup location and to confirm their arrival. My family's first experience travelling with luxury mountain limousine service was made incredibly easy and worry-free by the fact that they arrived exactly on time. For dependability and  peace of mind. Not to mention expense! In the future, I wouldn't think twice about using their services again. I appreciate it very much!

We recently used InterMountain Express for transfers between Denver, Aspen and Vail. They provided good, prompt, reliable service with nice cars and good communication. We had positive encounters. The drivers are very kind and well-versed in the area. Large, spotless, comfortable cars with DVD players were available. Would advise."

To go from keystone to Vail, I use this company. I had my family with me on the trip. The SUV was excellent and on time. The driver was extremely friendly and courteous. They make two calls on the way back, once the day before, to confirm the pick-up for the return. The return driver to keystone was also quite kind and courteous. Both SUVs were immaculate and attractive. I'm sure to use them again when I return to Vail.

Such great service! Arrived early and assisted with carrying and loading baggage. The driver was very nice and provided us with tips for navigating the Denver Airport. All passengers felt extremely comfortable in the car and with the driver. So much better than a shuttle service!
