Everybody loves the fantastic feeling you get from booking a holiday. You may have found a great deal to make it just that much sweeter. Now all you have to do is count the days until it’s time to head to the airport.
However if your trip involves hiring a car when you get to your destination it can be easy to be caught out by paying well over the odds for your hire car.
The hire car industry doesn’t always have the best reputation, caused in part by extra charges and fees, so it’s worth taking the time to follow advice on how to find cheaper deals on your holiday car hire. Well, who else is better than the UK’s very own Money Saving Expert to give you his top tips on how to ensure you get a good deal.
Summary of the Car Hire Tips from Martin Lewis:
- Don’t leave it until you get there, make sure you book early. The earlier the better.

- Insurance policies for the excess of any claim. Shop around before you pick up your car as you can often find better deals on excess insurance elsewhere
