Car Hire

Hello

Just wondering is anyone could recommend any reputable/cheap car hire companies?

Thanks

We have used Drive-a-Matic & Stoutes on occasions without problem, I would say that maybe reputable & cheap don't sit well together!

Try MAH Car Rentals.

I used them in Dec/Jan and found they provided a very good reliable service and were a little bit cheaper than other quotes I had.

They will get back to you very quickly via email for a quote.

Hi,

This year for the first time wehave booked through Holiday Autos for our car instead of booking direct with Stoutes as their prices seemed very steep.

We have been allocated a car with Drive a matic who are meant to be ok.

I always use Stoutes, have used them for years and have never ever had a problem with them, in fact they've gone over and above what I would have expected in the past. You might be able to find a cheaper alternative but I doubt they'll be as reputable, http://www.stoutescar.com/

I too have had cars from MAH. Good at communicating, reliable in pick-up and drop off at the airport - a friendly family run business.

.....and one of the reasons that Stoutes MAY seem to be a little higher is that the offer CDW with a full zero excess ...something that can be reassuring for some people ...and not available with other companies

...and their service has (for me ) always been EXCELLENT

MAH offer a zero excess too MDP and they were cheaper by quite a bit on our last trip. We had a new Terrios, the same jeep we usually hire from Stoutes, so I was comparing like for like. We were very happy with the service at MAH, something that has always kept us going back to Stoutes is their excellent service. We will go with MAH again next trip if they can offer the same lower prices.
