Sat nav is now among the favourite tools for UK motorists today and has become the way of finding directions for millions of people. However, award-winning car hire price comparator www.Carrentals.co.uk is telling drivers to keep a map in the car and not rely too much on the technology.

Many motorists today have the utmost faith in their sat nav to find a route for them, but the technology is still not quite entirely reliable. Sometimes sat nav GPS can find itself ‘lost’ in an area or post code it does not recognize, so Carrentals.co.uk is recommending that drivers also carry a map book in their vehicle.

Gareth Robinson, managing director of www.Carrentals.co.uk, says, "Millions of motorists today have total faith in their sat nav to plan their route for them, but sometimes a GPS can fail and leave the driver in the middle of nowhere and with no real idea of how to get to their intended destination."

Gareth continues, "Sat nav has multiple benefits for the modern road user, but we are nonetheless advising people to keep a back-up map in their car just in case their sat nav fails. Another handy tip is to plan a route on a map before setting out to understand directions in general."

www.Carrentals.co.uk provides drivers with sat nav hire in its range of holiday car hire packages which encompass 38 countries worldwide, prices starting at only £27.08 per week. Late holidays and trips are catered for too with delivery of sat nav by 1pm the following day* for reservations made before 4pm Monday – Friday.
