As a side note, when buying a car with kids we don’t recommend doing this or letting your kids do this to the car.
What’s new in the rent a car business
But there is the idea of a coloring book car program, it’s for rentals by Hertz rent a car.
The idea is that the upholstery is able to be colored on…awesome idea for kids and long car rides. There should be a national release of this program.
The program was started to reduce the common kid question of “Are we there yet”.
Oh and if you’re wondering how you can color on a dashboard? Hertz puts “special upholstery” over everything in the vehicle.
Alternatives for family vacation cars
This might beat the idea of having to buy a “family car” for a little while if you’re in the process of looking for your next family vehicle.
Sometimes renting a car for a vacation can beat buying a pre-owned family car for a vacation, it might be lighter on the money and down payment aspect.
