UK Travellers Should Plan Ahead as Summer Shortages Hit Spain Car Hire – Carrentals.co.uk

UK travellers taking their summer holidays in Spain this year have been warned to plan ahead as news emerged of a rental car stock shortage in Spanish resorts this year.

The advice on planning ahead comes from leading car hire price comparator Carrentals.co.uk, which has advised that there could be up to 18,000 fewer rental cars available in Spain following the news that AurigaCrown has gone out of business. The website warns that the impact of the shortage will see increased hire prices and lower stocks throughout the busy summer months.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “There is a real chance that people heading to Spain this summer will find a shortage of rental cars when they come to book. As such it is vital to book your rental car as soon as possible and as early as possible – since there is every chance the busiest Spanish resorts are going to have lowers stocks, no availability at all or very high prices this summer.”

“We can help Brits out by allowing them to compare car hire from up to 50 of the sector’s leading hire companies. Our service offers people the best chance possible of getting a good value deal from a smaller provider if the bigger providers are sold out this year.”

Hire deals for a week’s rental in Malaga are available from just £17* a day right now, with other deals to be had like £18* a day in Alicante, from £19* a day in Palma and from £21* a day in Ibiza.

Gareth goes on: “Rental suppliers who had their own customers’ reservations in place with AurigaCrown before they went bust have had to transfer those bookings to alternative providers. However, we do also advise any tourists who have got a deal in place already to rent a car in Spain this holiday season to check their paperwork and see who their supplier is. Then you can contact them to check the status and availability of your reservation.”

Carrentals.co.uk compares car hire deals from up to 50 rental companies, including Alamo, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt in over 15,000 locations worldwide.

Avoid extra insurance payment on hire cars by checking out online information provided by Carrentals.co.uk

Few things frustrate travellers more than paying for things they don’t need. How much insurance to buy for a rental car is one of the most confusing issues out there, but Carrentals.co.uk has written an online guide to help people avoid paying for cover they don’t need.

After polling some of the two million Brits who rent a car during the summer holiday season, Carrentals.co.uk discovered that the most common annoyance was the pressure exerted by rental agents to purchase additional coverage at the time of pick up. Most of the time, extra coverage in unnecessary and can add up to £2,000 to the bill.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “Having the right amount of coverage on a rental car is important, but most car hire companies try to take advantage of their customers by pushing them to buy extra insurance. It’s an annoying game they play, and sadly often neglects the most frequent trouble areas like lost keys or damaged windscreens.”

The rules of the road regarding proper rental insurance cover is nicely presented in a new video by carrentals.co.uk that can be viewed at http://www.carrentals.co.uk/extras/car-hire-insurance. They also have an excellent site devoted to common questions and the correct answers at http://forum.carrentals.co.uk/collision-damage-waiver-excess-insurance.

“One of our goals is to arm travellers with the right information to help them manage their budget effectively,” Gareth adds. “The video lays it all out there in black and white so that you won’t feel pressured to pay for cover you don’t really need. There definitely is a good case for buying extra cover, so we’ve created our own policy for our clients that tosses out the unnecessary things and keeps the good ones at a price everyone can appreciate.”
