Holidays in Salento on the road: here's how to get ready for the best
There are more and more travelers coming from all over the world who want to take a vacation on the road in Salento, aware that thanks to the car they have at their disposal the greatest possible freedom of movement and aware that thanks to the car they can reach areas that otherwise maybe they would never have had the chance to visit. Obviously those who arrive in Salento by plane, can rent a car directly near the airport.
Attention, avoid renting the car directly on site at the time of your arrival, because at the last minute you risk spending more than necessary. By making the rental online a few months in advance you will have the possibility to save money and you will also have a wider range of cars available to choose from so as to better meet your every need. If you have young children with you, remember to report it to the car rental agency you have decided to rely on, so that they can put at your disposal a car seat suitable for your children's age.
Before your departure or once you arrive in Salento we suggest you also check the official website of the Italian motorways, available at www.autostrade.it. The site, which can also be consulted in English, allows you to monitor the weather forecasts and road conditions of each motorway. Also through this site you can also find out how to schedule your stops. In this way even the longest routes that you will undertake during your holiday in Salento will not have for you any kind of obstacle.
If you travel in Salento in a period of low or medium season there are no particular precautions to be taken into consideration. If you travel during the high season, in the months of July and August, it is very important to remember that the traffic could be very intense, especially along the coast and close to the most famous places. You should therefore pay close attention to driving and to avoid being in the queue you should prefer early departures early in the morning and return to your accommodation instead the evening after dinner, when most people are back and the streets are therefore free. Remember to choose for your stay a hotel that has a large parking lot completely free for guests or a garage. In this way you will avoid having to look for a place for the car and having to pay extra charges.
