Book Car Hire in Advance

Comparison shopping and booking in advance are two of the most highly recommended things to do whenever you need to purchase a service from anyone.

This is exactly the same when it comes to car hire abroad. It is an incredibly sensible idea to do your research on the types of car available in that destination and shop around to find the best deal before heading off on holiday, as care hire in Cyprus will be considerably different to car hire in Florida, for example.

A great way to compare prices in your own research rather than using a comparison site is to select any car that you would hypothetically like to hire, and then run it through several different agencies to get a more genuine idea of how their prices and inclusions differ.

Also, rental rates tend to be higher whenever car hire is arranged over-the-counter, as opposed to pre-booking online before the holiday has even begun. By using price comparison sites for car hire before you leave, you will have access to a wealth of information about which companies are the most ethical and affordable, and which aren’t worth your time.

Booking car hire in advance, whether online or on the phone means that you are much less likely to become a victim of salesman-like persuasion – particularly if you are a person that is quite easily influenced by supposed ‘one-off offers’.

Check, double-check and check again to make sure that everything you need is included in any offer you’ve made. Many fraudulent car hire companies abroad choose to take advantage of the fact that tourists aren’t familiar with the law and persuade them that some types of insurance are compulsory – just to get an extra few hundred pounds out of their pockets.
