Guide to Getting the Best Car Rental Deal

  • Vehicle Size
    How much luggage will you be transporting? How many passengers will you be travelling with? Do you require a three door car, five door vehicle, or a van?
  • Vehicle Transmission
    Able to drive a manual? Automatics are a popular choice and when comparing, you may find they are slightly more expensive than manuals. Ensure you check out the great manual deals on offer.
  • Optional Extras
    When comparing suppliers and rental packages, ensure you check out the inclusions and the prices for optional extras you may need.
  • Excess Reduction
    Want extra peace of mind? Choose excess reduction either direct from the supplier or through a third party provider such as, Allianz Insurance or 1Cover.

Other Helpful Tips!

  • Book in Advance
    Book in advance to ensure you have access to a greater selection of available rental packages.
  • Expand Search Locations
    Try other locations near to your preferred destination as there may be an even larger selection of rental packages available.
  • Pick Up & Drop Off Times
    If you are flexible with your pick up and drop off times, remember to try and view all options. Suppliers do have opening hours and your selected pick up time of 4:30am may mean you are limited with your available deals as most suppliers operate from 5:00am. A half an hour difference can be significant in your car rental options.
  • Age of Driver
    Aged between 21 and 25* but travelling with a licenced person that is 26 and older? If you opt to be the main driver, your rental package will incur an age excess. If you prefer to save on the additional cost and forgo being the driver, you may like to have your travel companion be the designated driver.
    *Certain suppliers will include 25 within their age surcharge bracket. Please refer to the individual ‘Rental Conditions’ of each supplier for further information.
