Why do Car Hire Companies Encourage Customers to Book in Advance?

It's simple really, we are not trying to trick our customers into paying higher rental prices, but simply to offer the widest selection of cars at the most competitive rates.  At Rhinocarhire.com, we take the time to review car hire statistics over the last 2 years to show our customers the average rental rates per month and by car type.   Our top 100 destinations such as Milan and Malaga display car hire statistics to make your decision easy as when is best to book.  Don't just take our word for it, look at our prices as far back as 2009 and compare to the prices we have today.

We ran a study a short while back which indicated that only 1 in 4 customers booked their car rental in Malaga more than 4 weeks in advance!  Our advice has been and always will be to book as soon as your travel plans are confirmed.  The further in advance you book, the greater the choice of car and competition in the market place and so the best value car hire is at your disposal.

When planning travel, we have a tendency to be forgetful as the excitement of your holiday or trip takes over.  We should not forget the car hire crisis witnessed in the summer of 2009 where car hire shortages throughout Europe led to sky high prices as stock was stretched, or some locations, such as Spain having no stock at all leaving holiday makers stranded at the airport with no car.  Prices shot up to around £50 per day if you were lucky enough to get a car as all the mini / economy class cars sold out!  Book a week's car rental in Spain today from as little as £17 per day.

Don't run the risk like 35% of customers still do and leave your car hire booking to less than a week before you travel, book early with Rhino for the best price and to guarantee the car you need.

By showing our customers average car hire prices at our top 100 destinations we do more than just say we have the best rates, we prove it.  Yet another reason why we were voted Best Car Hire Website 2010!
