Price of car hire

What price have you paid for car hire this year?

I have found that prices are higher this year. £350 last year for standard SUV, fully inclusive with 2 drivers and tank of fuel versus £500+ this year.

I have looked around and can't get a better price, is this the general experience for others booking separate car hire..............?

I've just booked flights & car through BA, worked out cheaper than booking a flight only!

Have you looked on www.tripwheels.com they are quoting £361.37 for an intermediate SUV with additional drivers and fuel for 2 weeks through Dollar in Sept. When are you going?

Agree got great deal myself for flights, accommodation and car hire through BA plus using a cash back website which saves you pennies. Expedia is also good...car hire 3000 too

Have a look at www.alamo.co.uk/ba and select the bottom friends and family option, might save you a bit?
