A Reason to Consider a GPS Rental in Europe

For those of you who ski or snowboard, the mountains in and around Innsbruck, Austria offer some of the finest winter slopes in the world. The region attracts millions each year with it’s powder fields, massive snowfalls, and active night life. A few years ago, I was lucky enough to take a ski trip to this area. My friends and I picked up a rental car in  Munich, Germany and were soon on our way to Innsbruck, Austria.

Why You Need a GPS Rental in Europe
Austria

I was asleep for about an hour and a half when my traveling companions woke me up with some news I didn’t want to hear: We were lost. I was baffled. I had printed out directions that I thought were clear, but somehow we were in the town of Fugen. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, and could understand why we were lost. We had after all just been on an intercontinental flight.  Apparently when my companions stopped for a bathroom break in their haste they got on the wrong highway.  We were only an hour behind schedule once we made it to our hotel in Innsbruck, and ended up having a terrific time, so all was forgiven.

There are many places in Europe that are great to get lost in while on vacation. Scenic parks, museums filled with beautiful art and ancient ruins are a few places that come to mind. However, getting lost while driving to these locations isn’t something that most of us would consider a good time. That’s why there are many options for finding your way back on track, including a GPS rental from Auto Europe.
