3 Things To Consider When Renting A Car In Chania

Published by:

You can easily rent a car in Chania with all the companies that operate there in such as Flisvos. However, there are certain considerations in order for you to get the right unit. It would be better to be more conscious when booking for a car as it could give you a better holiday experience while in Greece. Here are some of the things to consider when hiring a car in Chania.

Car rental purpose

Think about why you would hire a car. If you are going to Chania for an important business meeting, it would be proper to hire a car that conveys importance to the meeting such as a black luxury car.  However, if you are in Chania to take leisurely trips along the city, a car suited for urban use such as Toyota RAV4 and Fiat Panda would be fitted. There are cars for huge groups or you can also opt for SUVs or cars suited for off-road applications.

Number of passengers

Another thing to consider is the number of passengers who will be in the rented car from Flisvos. Make sure that your passengers will be comfortable while in the vehicle and there would be room for everybody. If there would be 5 or 7 of you in the vehicle, a KIA Picanto would be ideal. However, if youare on your own, a savvy Peugeot 207 CC would be ideal for a breezy tour around the city. If you are travelling with your family and you need to take along strollers or baby pram while travelling, a van would be an excellent option.

Rental car budget

If budget is not an issue, you can go for high-end or luxury cars from Flisvos. However, if you are working on a budget, you can opt for budget or economical cars such as a Chevrolet matiz or such types. To lower your expenses, you can search for special deals or promo to stretch the value of your money. Compare rates with other car rental companies to get the lowest deal.

Free Lunch For The Underprivileged At A 5-Star Hotel

Published by:

Many people indulge in a perfect holiday at 5-star hotels. For example, if you stay at a 5-star hotel in Bangkok you literally do not have to do anything because there will always be staff to take care of every need. However, in Melbourne, a 5-star hotel will do something different which is not very common for luxury hotels.

The Langley Group was forced to cancel an event at the Intercontinental Melbourne. Since the cancellation for the event was done at the last minute, it was too late for the Langley Group to get a refund. The company will push through with the event but it will be held in-house. In order not to waste the scheduled public breakfast, Langley decided to donate it to charity.

Hundreds of homeless and underprivileged people will enjoy a free lunch at the hotel courtesy of the Langley Group. According to MahtaManzouri of Langley, normally, these people will never have the opportunity to experience 5-star dining. Most of the diners will be homeless youths and asylum seekers.

Even if the hotel cooperated with Langley Group, assembling a hundred disadvantaged people to free lunch at the hotel is not easy particularly since there is only a week to prepare.  Manzouri had to call several charities but they were unable to organize that many diners given the little time.

However, Melbourne City Mission, St. Mary’s House of Welcome and Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project were successful in gathering people together. House of Welcome will be sending 30 of their regulars for the free lunch.

Several of the young visitors are about to restart their lives with a career in hospitality so that the hotel will take them on a tour of the facility after the free lunch. The event will be something special for these underprivileged people and will go a long way in easing their pressure.

Every year the sameset of guests return to 5 star hotel in Bangkok because the rooms are clean and comfortable with technology right at their fingertips. Many of the guests prefer to stay in Bangkok to escape the bitter cold of winter in their countries.
