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.
