You can remove the excess at a fee of £2.99/day, thats another £36, £357 total, for full size car. Even with 20% off its still way too much.Hope someone finds a deal.

Hope someone finds a deal.

I used these when I went to Ireland in December and had a car from a company called 353Ireland (I think) and the car I got had out of date road tax by 6 months!, only one headlight and more scratches and dents than were reported on the paperwork.
Personally I wouldn't use this company again and would pay extra and use a well known car hire.

We used Holiday Autos when we went to Spain last summer. Despite paying for the extra insurance, we still had to pay more once we arrived for the full waiver.

We'll be dealing direct with a car-hire company this year

please search others tried this yesterday and they were so expensive. best deal I could find for where we are going was carhire3000 they were over £200 cheaper.

Have had also bad experience with Holiday autos, so this summer for my trip to Lisbon I tried to book directly from car rentals companies, contacted about 6-7 companies, but still couldn't get any car, absolutely sold out. Had no choice, had to seek brokers' help again since they have special agreements with agents and have better chances to get a car. Everything went more or less smoothly except they charged me twice and I haven't had all my money I counted with on my accunt till they returned it back.
So it depends on location and obstacles, sometimes brokerr are irreplacable.

Anyone got any other linky's?
Im off to Ayia Napa in August and wouldn't mind hiring a car for a couple of days

Its quoting me 82 quid for a renault clio for 2 days in august!

Got a much better deal from easycar, £140 for 10 days at the end of August + 10% quidco cashback, making it £126 (£12.60 per day)

Got an even better deal 2 years ago - £60 for a weeks hire and £10 quidco cashback, making it £50 for a week! Then when we arrived we got a free upgrade on the car too ....although that was in November, when prices are cheaper

Direct?

One thing I never use is third party hire car services. Having hired … One thing I never use is third party hire car services. Having hired hundreds of times, I have been in many situations waiting for my keys at Hertz, Europcar etc and having to listen to the person in front being told that there is no booking, or something wrong with their booking etc and the only advice they can offer is to phone the people they booked it through - obviously leaving them standing in an airport (usually) with an onward journey and nothing to get them there.Off topic maybe, but I thought worth sharing my experiences, it may make someone think about playing safe and dealing direct.


whats the alternative to third party?

VERY new to this. How exactly did you paste the link over the URL after you had gone to Holiday autos from quidco? I tried all ways and got nowhere. Would be nice to get both discounts, but if I can only get one I'll go for the 15%.

If you click on the link provided the site states the price with 15% already taken off. You can check this by doing it normally or checking lastminute.com
I booked using a debit card as it had a 2% surcharge for credit, the price didn't change throughout the checkout.

Voted cold for me, looking for Faro in Portugal, nothing came up when I clicked the link, I've called the helpline and got a very unhelpful guy saying that maybe the Faro deals (on an offer claiming to run from today till the 17th) have 'run out'

Don't forget £10 quidco too. Heat added as works out lots cheaper for me now.

You never said what size car you had and did that includeSLI , CDW, LDW … You never said what size car you had and did that includeSLI , CDW, LDW , State fee's and charges , milage allowance etc etc.Still this is the average price for a hire car in the US.I booked a Large SUV for 5 days with all the insurances and fee's, unlimited miles , unlimited drivers over 25, free tank of fuel, to drive from Las Vagas to San Francisco and back for £92.good post for those who are not aware or never consider car hire when in the US.IMHO.. i would pay a few pounds extra and book a Dollar or Alamo rental car their customer service's are First Class and the two times i broke down ,once in orlando and once in Boston i had a mechanic come out, took one look, busted drive chain on one, faulty petrol cap on another and within an hour had a new fully fuelled rental car.



Sorry, I had the smallest 'compact' size (i'm travelling on a small budget!) but, it was larger than my standard car in the UK! lol. US 'compact' = UK full size ford mondeo size! I had a Dogde calibare, awesome high powered car. More than enough room for 4 people, although boot space was limited, so would probably go for a large size car if you want to take more than 2 people and gear!

But upgrades = £2 extra for the next size up, £5 for the next and £7 for the next, so it's still cheap!

my experience is you get a fiat punto not a ford ka also air con is very sore on petrol if you hire a car abroad

Well looked for a car for next weekend from Nottingham and the cheapest is a Range Rover at £632 for the day to a Lamborghini Gallardo Roadster at £1384 and thats not cheap as I can hire one for less than a grand!

Voted cold, you can get a cheaper rental from enterprise atleast for Bristol area.

This is not that cheap i hired a car from hertz for £42 for 4 days last month and £8 quidco paid out fast so £34 for the 4 days. I hired the car for newquey airport and it was a ford fiesta and i had no trouble at all try hertz.
