Get maximum value from your travels with cheap car hire

Holidays are for letting your hair down and going where the spirit moves you – so what could be more liberating than to have your own 4 wheels at your beck and call? When you hire a car for the duration of your trip, you can look forward to exploring your chosen destination in total freedom. No more puzzling over public transport timetables to reach that off-the-beaten-track site or spoiling your evening worrying about missing the last bus back to your hotel. No more struggling with heavy luggage or fretful kids. Simply book in advance to secure the best choice of cheap car hire, pick up the keys from the hire company’s desk in the airport terminal, and head off for an independent adventure.

You can rely on ebookers to find you the best car hire deals

Thanks to ebookers’ comprehensive search facilities, it’s never been easier to coordinate all your holiday needs on one site. As soon as you’ve confirmed your flights and hotel bookings, simply click on the ‘Search Cars’ tab, then enter your pick-up and drop-off points, dates and times to see what’s available. You can even customise your search to isolate your particular car preference – from budget-friendly run-arounds to top-of-the-range limos. With ebookers it’s easy to locate the best car rental deals to support even the most complex holiday plans.

Tips for choosing the most appropriate car rental option

Before you commit to a particular car rental deal, consider what kind of vehicle will best serve your holiday needs. If you’re heading off on a city break with plenty of sightseeing and shopping, it makes sense to choose a compact model that’s easy to park, nippy in traffic and economical on short runs. If you’re planning a long journey on the open road, you’ll appreciate the extra legroom and enhanced comfort of a standard saloon. For multi-centre holidays with the whole family in tow, it pays to upgrade to a model with plenty of luggage space as well as all the extra souvenirs you’re bound to pick up en route. Special occasions call for special treats – turn heads with a flashy supercar, go for off-road thrills in a 4-wheel drive, or feel the wind in your hair with an eye-catching convertible.

Do your homework before you hit the road

Although you’re probably an experienced driver with thousands of road miles under your belt, it’s worth doing a little research before you leave home so that you’re fully conversant with the rules and regulations of the country or countries you’re planning to visit. Even with today’s sophisticated technology, it’s easy to innocently break the speed limit or incur fines that can turn a pleasant day out into an expensive and frustrating disaster. ebookers has handy links to all the major car hire companies, which means booking the best deal is a breeze.
