Car Hire

The best car hire deals are through specialist "broker" companies, that can offer better rates than the actual hire companies. You get quotes and book over the Internet or by telephone, but you must book several days in advance. It's worth checking ALL the company web-sites listed below, because they vary greatly; by country, time of year, pick-up, etc. It is not safe to rely upon a company simply because you have used it before! Over the years, good companies we have personal experience of are:-

World Wide Reservations

Auto Europe Car Hire

Holiday Autos

Travel Supermarket.

Don't forget that we are very close to Spain, and you will certainly want to cross the border to make the most of your holiday in this area. Whether you hire in France or Spain,

PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR INSURANCE COVERS YOU FOR BOTH FRANCE AND SPAIN!! Increasingly, people are discovering that companies at Gerona in particular are charging extra for insurance cover in France, but this is not always made clear. It seems that car hire in Barcelona usually does not include driving in France. Also watch out for companies that make you pay in advance for a full tank of fuel and say you should return it empty - which is of course nigh on impossible!
