7 Seater Car Hire in Spain (Barcelona) 2 weeks in Aug/Sept. Help Please?

Hi Guys and Gals,

We're trying to book a 7 seat hire car for 22/08/09 - 05/09/09 from Barcelona Airport and we're getting some shocking quotes back!

It's actually working out a lot cheaper to hire a family sized car and a small car, but we'd rather not do that.

Can anyone offer any advice?

TIA,

CJ

Have a lovely time

Hi
I've just had the same problem. Was trying to get a 7 seater for August and all the cheaper deals seemed to have gone. The cheapest I could get was around £800-£900 mark. We ended up just hiring 2 cars as it worked out cheaper. Didnt want to do this either but we were left with no choice. Our pick up point is Alicante Airport. Hire companies have a limited stock of 7 seaters and if you don't book them early then the price seems to go up with them. You would think they would rather get a hire out of it and reduce the price with a late booking.
Soz!

car hire in Spain is going to be a nightmare this year and very expensive, so it might be a case of taking what you can get ..

This is who I booked my car hire through and it found the cheapest for me. £268 for 2 weeks Renault Clio.
anycarhire.com/
The car hire company was SIXT who are one of the big companies.
Also try skycars.com/
Put in your dates and this will search all the major players in Baca!
Good luck

Don't know if this is any good

doyouspain.com/for…=EN

it came up at £465 for me now its gone up to £510 for the Citreon grand picasso

I'm not sure how good your spanish is, but amigoautos.es/alq…na/ is good. your better off using the .es site to the .com site, and it's cheaper. I can translate for you later if you wish, but the site has errors when viewing from work so will have to be when I get home. I notice bitter wallet have an article on car hire today

All these sites people are putting on, I had tried them all.
Each site had different prices for different dates, locations etc. If my booking had been a day earlier then the price was dearer on the site I booked it with but cheaper on another.
If you've not already tried these sites (which I suspect you may have) then it will be a case of just searching through them all until you find your best deal. I spent 2 days going through sites until I was sure I found the best deal. Good Luck!

Thank you for your booking enquiry.
We are sorry to inform you that we do not have any vehicles available for the dates requested due to the increase in bookings during the last week.

Any more ideas?

Well, let's see what happens with this!

I found a website with over 100 corporate codes for AVIS.

One of said codes reduced the price of a people carrier from £1,200 to £640.30!!!

Needless to say, I booked it straight away, through Quidco (6%).

We'll see what happens next!

Thanks for your help guys.
