New Widget to Find Your Perfectly Proportioned Hire Car

(0 votes), a leading online car hire insurance company, has launched today a fun and practical widget, the first of its kind, called 'Find the Right Car for You', which takes away the guess-factor in booking a hire car and makes sure you never again hire a car which is too small or too large for your needs.

The quick and easy-to-use widget features simple (and fun) graphics of people, children, suitcases, prams and car seats which can be dragged and dropped into an adjacent car icon, which then gets bigger or smaller depending on the load, before giving a recommendation of the most appropriate car, all in a matter of seconds.

A recent survey* revealed that while 82% of men felt it was their job to book the rental car for their holiday, most admitted to being more concerned with the make and size of the engine than the size of its boot.    This might explain why almost one in five (18%) then had to swap their chosen vehicle, on arrival, for a larger one.

"Hiring a car appears to be a battlefield between the engine capacity versus luggage capacity, although luggage capacity will always be the victor on the day!" says Ernesto Suarez, founder and CEO of "At we are dedicated to saving you money and we understand that unless you are a petrol head it's very hard to know exactly which hire car is right for you.   This clever widget will make sure customers book the right car from the start, saving time and stress."
