Choosing your vehicle

When looking to book car hire, it's important that you choose the right vehicle for you; one that suits your needs. With such a great selection of vehicles to choose from, regardless of destination, we'll get you on the road happy and hassle-free.

Where will you be going?

If you're looking to drive around cities or busy towns, or scoot around seeing sights, a compact/mini car is ideal. Its small size and great manoeuvrability makes getting from A to B in built up areas simple.

Who will you be travelling with?

If you're looking to travel with family or friends, a larger sized vehicle could be the right choice for you. The extra space will make for a much more comfortable drive, especially if you have young children.


If your luggage consists of just carry on or a backpack, then large boot space won't be a necessity, so you may be better suited to a smaller car. If however, you have a large amount of luggage, then mid-sized vehicles may be more appropriate for your needs.


There are 2 options when it comes to fuelling your car:

Full-to-Full - Pick up your vehicle with a full tank of petrol, and return it with a full tank.

Full-to-Empty- Pick up your vehicle with a full tank of petrol, and return the car with any amount left, but be charged for the difference

We highly recommend choosing the Full-to-Full option, as not only can you fill up at regional pump rates, you will not be affeced by additional charges and potential management fees when returning the vehicle

*The prices quoted are based on one driver, aged 25, with a full UK driving licence hiring a car for 7 days, picking-up and dropping-off at Alicant Airport, Spain. Prices correct at time of writing.
