Stay positive and plan ahead with St Helens car hire

Hands up if you’ve a strange sense of Deja vu? Yep, us too.

As we enter lockdown 2.0, yet again all but essential shops are shut, entertainment venues have closed their doors and socialising with anyone outside of your household is strictly off limits.

If lockdown was hard the first time, it’s definitely tougher second time around. Not only have we dark nights and dreary mornings to contend with, adding to the sense of gloom is the fact that whilst this feels all too familiar, in so many ways November 2020 couldn’t be much further removed from the same period in previous years.

Normally, now is the time you’d be starting to plan your festivities, hiring a minibus for the big work’s night out and looking forward to catching up with family and friends over the holiday period.

But don’t be too disheartened. It’s hoped that this second wave of lockdown will help to gain control of coronavirus. And, whilst there are no guarantees, if it’s successful, restrictions may lessen in time to save Christmas. Either way, it’s important to stay positive and the team at PSD Vehicle Rental are here to help. And what better way than by making plans for happier times ahead?

How to stay positive

  1. 1. Pencil in a family reunion

There are no guarantees on when things will return to normal, but one thing we do know is that when we are finally allowed to meet up with our loved ones, it’s going to be one heck of a party.

Co-ordinating multiple diaries can be tricky, so how about pencilling in the reunion now? Chances are people haven’t got much booked in and it will give everyone something lovely to look forward to. It doesn’t need to be a huge affair, just organise a date and a central location for all the family to meet up. You can maximise your catch-up time and minimise the stress by sharing the journey with other nearby family members – take a look at the range of vehicles we have available including car and mini bus hire.

  1. 2. Plan a road trip

Tired of the same four walls? Fancy a change of scenery but not keen to go abroad at the moment? Once travel restrictions are lifted why not discover the delights right here on your doorstep and use your time now to plan a road trip?

Perhaps there’s a city you’ve always hoped to visit or a part of the countryside you’ve never explored – open the maps out and enjoy plotting your trip. And don’t forget we have great car hire options available for both short and long distance journeys, with small cars to make city parking a breeze and larger vehicles if you’re planning a adventure that requires lots of equipment and baggage!

  1. 3. Offer help

Finding ways to reach out and help others can be a great way to gain a sense of control, boost your mood and help those around you. Could you volunteer to make deliveries for the local community, helping out those that are self-isolating or particularly vulnerable?
