Often the car hire services operated by budget airline companies can be much more expensive than booking car hire with a separate company
(PRWEB UK) 17 May 2012
The Guardian recently reported on the additional costs that make “cheap” flights with certain airlines so expensive. Often the car hire services operated by budget airline companies can be much more expensive than booking car hire with a separate company. The team at Airport Car Hire maintain an easy to use price comparison site which allows their customers to find the best deals for car hire from airports across the UK. A member of the team explains why it is always worth looking into the car hire solutions on offer from a separate company.
“In booking their holidays, many people assume that if they are flying with a low cost airline firm, that the cost of their car hire services will also be at a lower rate than the rest of the market. However, booking your car hire solutions with a separate company is usually much more cost-effective. To save our customers even more money we’ve compiled this advice.”
- When comparing prices for car hire, it is always advisable that customers look further than simply the base rate. To get an accurate idea of how much the end cost is likely to be, it is always worth considering all fees and taxes involved, making further enquiries into these if necessary. At Airport Car Hire, the team offer a comparison service that prides itself in having no hidden costs, but the team are keen to stress the importance of looking into each deal fully before signing.
- UK consumers are one of the biggest targets for soaring credit card fees. The government is expected to ban “excessive” card fees from the end of 2012, but for anyone planning on travelling this summer, it is worth noting how much extra money these costs can amount to. Airport Car Hire offers a comparison service that charges no credit card fees, but the team recommend that people are aware of these, sometimes now referred to as “administration fees”.
- The team have also issued advice when visiting price comparison sites for quotes. They suggest it is extremely beneficial for the customer to go through a website that has a large enough number of companies on board for customers to get a realistic idea of the best quote available to them. With quotes from over 550 car hire operators, Airport Car Hire specialise in helping consumers find the best deals on the market.
