For those travelling for pleasure there is a wide selection of attractions to visit; having your own transport will be useful when visiting these great destinations.
At Cardiff Castle, those who like history will be fascinated by the differences between the Norman keep and the much later Victorian mansion.
Today the castle hosts a number of events including musical performances and sporting occasions.
Also of interest is Llandaff Cathedral, a site that has had a cathedral upon it for almost nine hundred years; the current façade is much more modern however, thanks to a reconstruction effort during the nineteenth century.
You do not of course have to stay in the city to experience all Wales has to offer.
A hire car will enable you and your party to head in to the majestic Welsh countryside. The coastal areas of the Bristol Channel and beyond are worthy of a visit and it is advisable to head into the interior of Wales.
With stunning valleys and imposing hills, it really is a feast for the eyes. For those with a real penchant for nature, heading to the Brecon Beacons should be included in you itinerary.
If you feel this driving may be too much for one, it will be worth adding an extra driver to your hire package when booking with Budget.
Modern attractions in Cardiff are in abundance.
Firstly, there is the Millennium Stadium which has hosted a wide variety of sporting events from the national past-time of rugby to football matches while London's new Wembley was being completed.

Just remember to look at the larger cars in Budget's range to accommodate all of those shopping bags.
Cardiff as a modern contemporary tourist destination is fascinating. It gives visitors the chance to sample Welsh city life as well as being close enough to the countryside to experience rural activities.
A Budget hire car will truly assist you in getting the best from your trip whether travelling for business or pleasure.
