About discount car hire

No car hire company likes seeing vehicles left in the parking lot, so to maximise the number of cars rented at any given time, companies offer deals and discounts to win your business at a competitive price. As a result, this means that there are always promotions taking place as companies compete for your custom, making it easier than ever to find discount car hire.

Discount car hire providers

The problem with so many companies vying for your attention is that it can be hard to choose which car hire company to go with. Your best bet for discount car hire is either through dedicated car hire brands or third party car hire brokers, both of which offer significant deals and discounts when you book in advance, online.

Types of hire cars

People's needs vary greatly when it comes finding discount car hire: if you're away for work you may be after something small and practical, but if you're on holiday you may want something a little racier. Then of course it depends on your party size: couples may fancy a speedy convertible, while families often need roomy people carriers.

To match this vast and varied demand, car hire companies offer a wide range of vehicle types to correspond with every need and budget. From small basic two-door vehicles, to convertibles, premium cars, vans and 4x4s, you're sure to find an appropriate type, while the latest model is almost guaranteed as most companies aim to keep their fleets young.

Car hire extras

Some car hire companies can catch you out with added extras, although with our selection of discount car hire deals and promotions, added extras sometimes come as part of the bargain. Whether it's unlimited mileage, car seats for children, snow chains, sat navs or an additional driver, make sure you read the small print regarding any extras before booking.
