Car rental prices could rise this summer, if dire predictions by UK-based Economy Car Hire are accurate.
Economy Car Hire managing director Ron Sexton says that reductions of up to 30% in fleet size by major hire companies may lead to availability problems and price rises this summer:
Every year we have problems with availability at peak times, and this year it will be much worse, especially as holiday makers are leaving it to the last minute to book their vehicles.
This makes sense – and means that using an effective car hire comparison site is more important than ever, if you’re planning to hire a car during the peak summer season (or any other time, really!).
Why pay more than you have to?
