On the 1st day of Christmas my true love said to me: "I'm booking the hire car for the summer holiday, why are the rental webistes so confusing?"

  • Yep you're not alone, car rental websites are notorious for their lack of transparency leaving even a canny customer feeling like they're driving in a winter fog. 
  • To navigate your way through them successfully make sure you're clear about what you've paid for in advance and how much any extras will cost you when you pick the car up. This means you can budget for ALL your costs rather than getting any surprises at the rental desk.
  • If costs aren't clearly laid out go to a different website.
  • Save time by knowing which car you want to book. has a brilliant and simple-to-use widget on our home page which helps you choose the perfect sized car for your next trip. Click here to launhc the car hire size widget!
  • Book early, our quarterly benchmarking data has found that, whilst there are sometimes some good last minute deals, if you want to guarantee a good price, and the car you want, it pays to book early.
