Car Hire from Cardiff for 1 month

Need to hire a small/compact car from Cardiff this week and keep for 1 month.

Have looked online at the usual suspects and all seem to be around the 450-500gbp range.

Wondered if anybody knows of any good deals lately. Perhaps small little company ?

Will probably try and approach some direct by phone in the hope of getting a good deal due to being low low low tourist season.

Anybody had any luck doing that?

That price sounds about right if it is a new car. That's what it will cost the hire company to run the thing without making a loss. If you get much cheaper than that, it will probably be a much older car, with limited insurances, and you may well get stung if you don't inspect carefully for damage when you pick up.

That seems like a reasonable rate to me. How much were you hoping/expecting to pay, Karen B?

Can't imagine a particularly large proportion of the car hire market in Cardiff is made up of tourists so doubt 'low low tourist season' will have much impact on the price.

Does it have to be from Cardiff.?Have you considered if it's feasible to rent from a nearby city? It looks like you can rent from Bristol Airport for around 315 GBP. (And it shouldn't cost much to travel between the two cities.
