Our quarterly benchmarking research is becoming a rich source of information to the national media. Just this weekend both the Independent and the Observer chose to use our inside knowledge of the industry to inform their readers how they could save money:
The Independent, 18 January 2013
Research by iCarhireinsurance.com found that a holidaymaker who booked a hire car in January 2013 for travel over the summer months saved on average £154 compared with those booking in April 2013. However, beware hidden extras, which can add hundreds to the original quoted cost. The additional costs of fuel, adding an extra driver (particularly one under 25), a car seat, and excess car hire insurance, alongside the age and quality of the car you get and the service you receive, will all make a huge difference to the true value of the deal.
The Observer, 19 January 2013
January is the best time of year to book your summer car hire, according to iCarhireinsurance.com. It says that in 2013 a traveller booking in January saved an average of £154, compared with those who booked in April 2013 – while some saved as much as £562 by booking early.
