How to keep car hire costs down

One reason that car hire costs are creeping up is that there is shortage of available vehicles in some destinations, such as Spain.

Holidaymakers should book in advance to make sure they can get a carand lock in a good deal.

Comparison sites can help you find the best deals, but be careful to check the small print.

Watch out for things such as whether the hire includes a full tank or petrol, which could add to your expenses if you only plan to do a few miles.

Check prices for different sized cars toodon’t just assume the smallest one will be the cheapest.

Buying your own insurance in advance can also help cut costs, rather than being sold pricey policies at the hire kiosk.

It might also be worth checking whether there are cheaper alternatives to hiring a car, particularly if you don’t plan on driving much.
