– Tourists who want to rent a car on their summer holiday to Spain this year may find themselves facing a shortage of vehicle stocks following the closure of one of the country’s foremost hire car providers.
The warning has been issued by Carrentals.co.uk , the award-winning car hire comparison website. With AurigaCrown closing its doors, the website predicts that Spain’s car hire sector could have as many as 18,000 fewer vehicles available to tourists this year. As such car hire prices will be higher and availability will be reduced.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “Travellers and tourists are unfortunately going to find there are not so many cars around to rent this year, with AurigaCrown going out of business. With that in mind we want to remind travellers to get their rental cars booked as soon as possible to get themselves plenty of choice and value for money.”
“Users of the Carrentals.co.uk service can compare car hire from up to 50 providers, both large and specialist, to help them get the right rental deal for their Spanish holiday.”
This summer Carrentals.co.uk can help people book Spain car hire deals like one week in Malaga from only £17* a day, £18* a day in Alicante, from £19* a day in Palma and from £21* a day in Ibiza.
Gareth continues: “Those car hire suppliers who were AurigaCrown customers have had to ensure that people with existing bookings are serviced by alternative suppliers. However to cover yourself and for increased peace of mind, we also recommend that anyone with a deal in place to rent a car in Spain over the summer read through their booking information and contact the named supplier to check that their booking is still OK.”
