What types of cars do you rent?

Car Hire Comparison UK: Most rental companies categorise the hire cars and broadly speaking, these are as follows: Mini, Economy, compact, Standard or Intermediate, Full Size, Luxury or Premium, Vans/Minivans (also referred to as MPV's or People Carriers), SUV's and, depending on the location, Exotic and/or Special Cars which may include such icons as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Bentley, Lamborghini and so on. The 'vans' or people carriers are typically available in derivatives from 5 seats through to nine seater. Some locations will also have soft tops (convertibles/cabriolets) available, from a sports car through to a family soft top or 4x4 with a removable, canvas top. Compare Car Hire.

The range is exhaustive and we invite you to look at the 'information' section for additional details on individual vehicles and specifications. Remember, that the extent of the range will be dependent on availability, location and country. 

Where can I get my rental car?

The good news is that 'Car Hire Assistant' has access to over 550 suppliers who, combined, have some 30,000 locations in 175 countries. Therefore, if you want to collect your rental car from a large city, small town, holiday resort, sea port or airport, there is an excellent chance that one of the rental companies we use will have an office near you. If you want to collect your hire car from one location and return it to another, this is also possible with some hire companies, although a premium is charged. Many of the companies we deal with also have kiosks or stations at major airports. 

Remember, our service is free, there are no hidden charges or booking surcharges. We search, so you can compare, not just the price of your rental car, but the options, types of vehicles, locations and service.

List of Official Tourist Boards or Authorities by Country

Anyone that has tried to find a single location for a list of the 'official' tourist boards/authorities for each country or significant tourist destination in the world will, most likely, have been disappointed. Yes, some websites have attempted to do this but, many lists are incomplete or simply out of date. We have attempted to address this by providing a comprehensive and updated list of Government sponsored or managed official tourist sites.

We have deliberately excluded countries where their only reference to tourism is a small section of a website run by one of their embassies. We have also excluded websites where we doubt the veracity of their claims to be an "official" or Governement sponsored website. However, we are human, and if anyone notices any glaring errors, please let us know and we will update the list.

Not all countries have an offical tourism website and we have elected not to provide an alternative source, given private sites tend to be too commercial, lacking any real objectivity. However, whilst some islands can't claim to be independent nations, if they have taken the time to build a tourism site, then they have been included in this list. We have also included locations that we believe are popular tourist destinations. 

This is not intended to be a definitive list of all the official tourist websites in the world, that would be a full time job, but it does list more than 200. Nonetheless, the internet is dynamic, things change quickly and resource lists get outdated. We welcome any contributions to this list, whether they be new offical websites or updates. Wherever possible, the links are defaulted to the English language version of the website.
