With many car hire companies, if a vehicle is damaged, the driver has to pay the first amount of the repair bill. In some countries this can be over EUR1,000.
tip' Where possible, take out Damage Excess Waiver (DEW). With Your Car Hire, this costs just £2.50 per day and gives you the peace of mind that any excess paid will be refunded back to you at the end of the hire as long as our booking agent Your Car Hire is sent a police and accident report form from the local company.

Fixed mileage

(Unlimited Mileage is included in the price on all Car Hire International/Your Car Hire rentals).

Local Car Hire
Cars may not be as reliable and you could find yourself on your own if you hit problems.
Language can become a barrier in the booking process, leaving additional costs hidden.
This is all providing there are cars available!
tip' It's better to leave home knowing you've got everything sorted for when you arrive.

What Car is best
tip' Consider your luggage requirement, how many passengers, budget, comfort, economy.
If you are booking for a holiday it is worth thinking about your requirements and taking the above into consideration.

Also, if you aim to use the car to cover large distances during your trip, a larger car may make this more pleasant.
One other thing to consider is 'fun' - If your budget permits, you may want something a bit special or sporty. This could make your break more special. A convertible in a pleasant climate can leave you with fond memories of a particular place as your car hire could actually be part of the break, giving you the chance to drive something you perhaps would not normally drive.
