24 Car Hire Tips and Tricks! Part 2

Welcome to part 2 of the Auto Europe “Car Hire Advent Calendar”, where we bring you 24 car hire tips over two blog posts. These tips will help you pay less for car hire on your next holiday, and hopefully give you some new travel ideas!

Window #13: Luxury Car Hire

If you have a special event coming up and need a car that will make an impression, or simply want to splurge on your next trip, you should take a look at Auto Europe’s luxury car hire service! Make a search on our luxury car booking engine, or read more about the different brands, and contact our luxury car specialists who can make your sports car dream a reality!

Window #14: Best Price Guarantee

Auto Europe is committed to finding the best price for your car hire. As proof of our commitment, we offer the Best Price Guarantee: if you find a better deal from one of our competitors, fill out our form and we will try to match the price. The deal you have found must, of course, have equivalent terms and conditions with our offer.

Window #15: Toll-Free Call Centre Number

If you have any questions about a potential or upcoming car hire booking with us, you can call our reservation centre free of charge from UK landlines on 0800 358 1229. You can also book with us over the phone, or make changes to an existing booking. If you wish to call us from abroad, please do not use the call centre number, but use the number provided on your voucher instead.

Window #16: Fuel Policy

It is important that you pay attention to which fuel policy is included in your booking. On our search engine, you can now filter results according fuel policy, and see only results for Full to Full or Full to Empty offers. A Full to Full policy generally allows you to save, as you only pay for the fuel you use. More information can be found in our Fuel Policy Adviser.

Window #17: Free Cancellation and Amendment

One of the main benefits when booking with Auto Europe is that we allow you to cancel or modify your booking for free up to 48 hours before the pick-up time. This allows you to make a booking without having to worry, as you can amend it if your plans change. A few exceptions apply, so please check your voucher.

Window #18: New York City

Who wouldn’t want to see New York? As a busy travel destination, New York City also sees lots of car hire bookings. What many customers may not know, though, is that car hire prices in New York City are much higher than in the surrounding region. Hence, our tip: book your car hire in a destination close to New York, and drive into the city to save some money!

Window #19: Different Categories

A great way to make your car hire more budget friendly is to make sure you book the right car category. If you are travelling with lots of luggage you will want to make sure that the category is large enough, or if you are planning a city trip in Italy, choose a smaller vehicle for ease of driving and parking. Take a look at our car category pages, which explain what each category is best suited for.

Window #20: Gold Rate

The Gold Rate is an excellent way to save in the USA and Canada! This fantastic offer includes the first tank of fuel and three additional drivers in the rental price, perfect for a North American road trip. Find out more about this offer here.

Window #21: Motorcycle Hire

Enjoy the feeling of ultimate freedom and book a motorcycle with Auto Europe for your next holiday! This service is offered in the USA, and you can find motorcycles using the filters on our search engine. Get ready for the adventure of a lifetime!

Window #22: Chauffeur Services

For your next business trip or special event, you can now also book a chauffeur with your luxury car hire. Just sit back and enjoy the ride with one of our professional drivers behind the wheel! Find out more about this service here.

Window #23: Social Media
