The days when estate cars used to be regarded as a basic tradesman’s work vehicle are long gone. Having plenty of boot space is still a primary consideration for those hiring an estate, but space is far from the only thing today’s vehicles have to offer. A premium estate car has all the advantages of the saloon or hatchback model, and comes with a sleek, modern design that provides eye-catching, stylish lines. Enterprise Rent-A-Car sources their fleet of estate cars from leading manufacturers and they are all maintained to a very high standard, including being valeted inside and out prior to collection. The engine in an estate is generally more powerful than the saloon model; usually starting at 1.8L. You also get the benefit of alloy wheels as standard, a large petrol tank so you don’t have to keep stopping to refuel, and great suspension for the most comfortable of rides. An already large boot can be extended simply by dropping down the rear seats. This is where the estate really comes into its own, and because the boot is usually lower to the ground, heavy objects slide in, so there is no lifting. With an estate from Enterprise, you aren’t just hiring an estate, you are buying into a lifestyle.
Enterprise’s premium range includes the largest estates in their fleet. A premium estate car is the ideal family vehicle. Going on holiday in Germany for a week or longer isn’t like taking a day trip to the seaside – apart from clothes, there are all sorts of things that need to be included in the itinerary, particularly where children are concerned This can be problematic, even in a normal salon with a generous-sized boot, but not in an estate, which is easier to load, into the bargain. There is no point in cramming everyone into the confines of a hatchback to drive hundreds of uncomfortable miles, when, for a little more outlay, you can drive off while enjoying the luxury a premium estate affords. Perhaps children aren’t something you have to worry about, since you may be taking a group of friends on that fishing trip you've been planning. Estates take countryside driving in their stride and there is plenty of room for rods, fishing boxes and other equipment. Enterprise has over 7,600 branches worldwide, so even if you and your friends are flying to the Black Forest to see what the area has to offer, Enterprise premium estate car hire in Germany will be within easy reach.
