The freedom and flexibility of car rentals is an appealing factor.

car-in-motionIn order to maximize your vacation to Amman, Jordan, you’re going to want to be sure that you hit an assortment of destinations that showcase the wonders of the city. And, the best way that you can do this is through short term leasing a car in Amman Jordan. This way, you’ll travel on your own time and not have to worry about dealing with the strict time schedules of a tour bus.

You’re the Boss

Not to place a knock on tour companies, but some of them tend to rush through locations to keep on track with their schedule. This could mean that you would feel rushed after visiting each location instead of taking the time to explore the ins and outs of every stop. By choosing car rentals in Jordan over a tour company, you could essentially go wherever you want to whenever you want. This opens up a plethora of options for you and your family when it comes to some of the famous tourist destinations.

Prices Are Cheaper Than Tours

In addition to the flexibility that you’ll have, you’ll also save a significant amount of money that you can place elsewhere. Tour companies need to make money. In order to do so, they’ll offer packages that will take you to specific locations. The only downside is that it can be quite expensive. Having a car of your own will cut those costs and provide you with the same benefits that you’d receive with a tour company (minus the guide).

Being stuck in a hotel room for a long time can be difficult, especially if there is no quality entertainment available. One trick that lots of tech savvy travelers do is use the Google Chromecast streaming stick to cast video to the hotel room TV. It does require some work, a few accessories you can buy online, but for extended stays, it is worth the hassle. Here is a basic rundown of how to get a Chromecast working in a hotel room

You will need a laptop or tablet with local video/audio content, a smartphone with internet access, a Chromecast and power adaptor, a TV with HDMI port. Most of this is necessary as hotel room wireless networks use a technology which does not one device access another device on the same network, for security reasons.

First, on the internet enabled smartphone, setup a Wi-Fi hotspot for the Chromecast and other devices to use. Keep this phone powered at all times, as this is going to be a drain on the battery. Any online shop will carry all the cables needed for this setup. Now connect the Chromecast to the TV and connect it to the hotspot network.

Next, connect the device (tablet or laptop) with the local content to the same hotspot network. Now from any Chromecast compatible software cast to the TV.

Note that there are some countries that have affordable short term unlimited data connections for phones. In this situation alone, it can be cost-effective to actually cast content from the internet to the TV.
