Family holidays are the things memories are made of; everyone remembers those long days at the beach, trying their first rollercoaster and staying up late to go the drive-in movies. Nothing puts a downer on the day than having to wait in the blazing sun for a bus. Make the most of your holiday and hire a family car and arrive and depart from the beach on your timetable and not the bus timetable.
