Where do you need Car Hire?

Types of car hire

Looking to hire a car? With so many providers on the market, the choice can be overwhelming at first. To help you choose the right one, we’ve provided this quick overview to the different types of car hire available today.

Small car hire

Ideal for singles or couples looking to enjoy a city break, small cars are perfectly designed to navigate narrow streets and tight parking spaces. And because they’re economical on fuel, they represent fantastic value for money too. Just be aware that your luggage space will be limited, so any generous packers (or dedicated shoppers) might want something a little larger.

Medium car hire

Typically something like a Volkswagen Golf or a Ford Focus, medium cars are ideal for families or small groups of friends. With enough space for five people to sit in relative comfort, these vehicles also offer a decent amount of luggage space - although full cars will be limited to one bag per person.

Large car hire

Although they seat the same amount of people as a medium car, large cars offer more space - which translates into a more comfortable journey and a more generous luggage allowance. Ideal for adults who want to bring several bags with them, these vehicles are also great for extended road trips.

Premium car hire

Similar in size to large cars but with premium features and engineering, these vehicles - typically Audis or Mercedes - are ideal for business travellers or anyone who wants that luxury edge. With extras like air conditioning and cruise control as standard, premium cars offer an enjoyable experience for drivers and passengers alike.

People carrier hire

Travelling with a large family or in a bigger group of friends? People carriers are ideal for hirers who have too many passengers for a large car. However, bear in mind that luggage space can be limited, so you might need to travel light.
