Now the fleets vary from supplier to supplier, country to country and even location to location. Below is a sample fleet guide against the size categories use in the car hire industry.
Each car shown on our systems (any other brokers too) are example cars making up the majority of the fleet. You may be given a choice of vehicles but you are guaranteed the size and specification shown.
For example if the car shown has “4 door” and “air con” shown then these extras are guranteed on the car.
All vehicles shown on Automatic Car Hire are 100% guaranteed automatics. Please note: last minute bookings may be on request but each of our suppliers will do their utmost to confirm the vehicle quickly and will constantly be in touch with you offering other options if required.
