Travel is full of those ‘pinch me’ moments — the destinations that are so breathtaking, it’s like you’re on a film set, or the nonstop action that makes you feel like you’re the star of your own movie.
Now you can add an extra pinch of Hollywood to your travel plans with our transportation partner deals inspired by the movies.
Rent a car with Avis
Movie: Thelma and Louise, 1991
If you’re a fan of road trips, the next great adventure of your life could start with a car rental. Yep, really. All you need is to find the Thelma to your Louise and hit the road to a destination fit for a film star, like the Grand Canyon. Pro tip: rent a Thunderbird to feel like scene-stealer.
Choosing car rental gives you the freedom to plan your own timetable and suit yourself on your trip. Avis offers up to 15% off your car rental in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia. They offer a 5% discount in Australia, a 10% discount in New Zealand and inbound into North America (USA & Canada).
For drivers that spend precious time searching for a parking spot, look no further than Onepark. Find your perfect parking space, and book it with 10% off your first booking, then with a 5% discount on subsequent bookings.
Take a taxi or transfer
Movie: Breakfast at Tiffany’s, 1961
Feel like the leading lad or lady on your stay— take advantage of taxi travel life. Having a handheld round the clock service tailored to your agenda is one of the best things about choosing to hail a cab, without having to do that New York City style whistle that Audrey Hepburn makes look easy. If you’re a sustainability conscious traveller, Travel Electric in Amsterdam is perfect for you —get a 25% discount on your eco-friendly ride. Choose Minicabit to get around in the UK with a 10% discount. Get Transfer are offering Bidroom members up to 10% off your pre-booked transfers.
Catch a flight
Movie: Bridesmaids, 2011
Get inspired by Kristen Wig and live it up on your flight, whether you’re in business or first class. Strike up conversation with a fellow passenger, pop some champagne, or bring a good magazine and have your in-flight playlist at the ready. It’s a chance to get cosy and binge-watch some movies — our suggestion? Definitely do not watch Airplane! on an airplane. Get a cheaper offer on your flight with Jack’s Flight Club membership, where Bidroom members get 30 days free.
Go by train
Movie: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, 2001
Bring a touch of magic to your journey and opt for a train ride. Not only do you get the chance to watch the enchanting, whooshing views out the window and pack a tonne of tasty snacks, but the difference in carbon emissions for rail as opposed to air travel is pretty significant. So you can be a responsible traveller while you roam. Keep watch out the window for anything magical, perhaps even a flying car with students that missed the Hogwarts Express… Catch the Heathrow Express with up to 10% off.
Rent a bike
Movie: E.T, 1982
This one is for fitness fans and chilled out travellers alike. Cycling is one of the most popular ways to explore — you get to feel like a kid again, with the wind blowing through your hair on a bike ride in the sun. Peddle around the city, breathe in the fresh air, and feel the endorphin rush after a bit of exercise. Baja Bikes are giving Bidroom members a 10% discount on their rentals.
P.S. Always check your basket for aliens.
