Take your own extras

In addition to providing a complete rental quotation that covers you for everything you need for your hire, we give all our customers the option to purchase the extras and additional protection they want to make renting a vehicle more comfortable and convenient for them. We can provide extras like children’s car seats, booster seats and satellite navigation systems. Those looking to save money however may find better value in bringing their own along for the ride.

Making alternative arrangements such as driving your own vehicle or getting a lift to us will also mean you don’t have to foot the bill for other costs like delivery and collection.

Don’t bother with pre-paid fuel

We’ve covered the downsides of purchasing pre-paid fuel before. Whilst this isn’t an option we provide, many hire companies do and make extra money from you in the process. With a little bit of planning you can avoid the hidden charges that go hand-in-hand with these fuel policies. Take a trip to the closest fuel station to the rental company to get started and refuel in accordance with your plans.

Find a car that suits your needs

We work with each and every one of our customers to source the right vehicle for their circumstances. One of the many benefits of hiring a vehicle is getting the look of car you want, but thinking practically is also a must. We can help you make sure that the size and specification of vehicle you choose is right for you.

Shop around for a bargain

Comparing the market isn’t just a must when shopping for home insurance and energy. The same tactic can be used to find the best deal for vehicle rental, and remember the first hire price you see doesn’t have to be the one you go with.
