The Ford Mustang Convertible

Tour one of the premier vacation spots in the country, sample exotic cuisines, enjoy stunning, sweeping views of gorgeous, sandy beaches, breathtaking sunsets, take the family to one of the many theme parks, or just go driving along the coastal highways.  For those of you planning a trip to Miami, there is no better way to see all the sights than by renting a car.  Though, finding the right rental car can take a bit of time, a little extra money, and knowing where to look for the best deal on the sports car can make your vacation truly memorable. My personal favorite for taking in the stellar panoramas of Miami and South Beach is the singular Ford Mustang convertible, preferable in a candy apple red.

When you rent any car, typically the first concern is budget, but the second concern is style.  Nothing is worse than trying to find a sports car and only being able to find a minivan available for rent.  First thing to do when you’re looking for a great rental car – give yourself plenty of time to find just the right fit for you.  Keep in mind the timeframe you need the car for – sometimes you can save some money by renting for a longer period of time or renting on certain days of the week.  If your travel dates are flexible, look into when you will be needing your hotel and car, and you can easily shave five to ten percent off your fixed vacation costs.  Also, keep in mind what extras you need, from GPS to satellite radio, always know what you’re looking for.  Often times, after I’ve secured a rental car, I call the car company and ask if they can include a few extras at little or no extra charge.  You would be surprised at how often you can score small upgrades for little or no charge by simply asking for them.

Next question you have is where to find such a pristine Ford Mustang to rent for your trip and how to make it fit your budget.  For me, a little research goes a long, long way.  From car dealerships to standard car rental agencies, there are many avenues you can use, but here are a few ideas off the beaten path – to help you find the best deal on the car of your dreams.  See what your credit card company can do – often times they have discounts that can save you money, they can also provide complimentary car rental insurance, saving you from purchasing it through the car rental provider.  Also, check with any clubs or memberships you have, often they can provide discounts for car rentals, or help you score more upgrades.  Do an online search for coupon codes for car rentals, check with your bank or credit union, there are plenty of discounts available, you just have to ask for them.

Explore the beaches, shops, parks, and unique eateries that Miami is known for and do it in style and do it at your leisure.  Seeing Miami at your pace, leisurely taking in all the fantastic sights and sounds from the drivers’ seat of a sleek Ford Mustang convertible will make this the vacation of a lifetime.

For the last few years, I have been saving up money to buy a sports car for myself. Now I have saved up enough money to buy a nice car. This Ford Mustang sounds like a nice car. It looks good, it has good horsepower. As it is possible to rent this car for a few days, I might rent it. Then I get to check out how good it is. If it is good enough, I will buy it.

  4. Recently I had an opportunity to borrow a new Mustang from a friend while my car was getting repaired in the body shop. It wasn’t a convertible, but it had many other fun options including a fantastic stereo. The Mustang was fast,smooth & handled great!
