How can I guarantee the car that I will hire is not ‘old’?
Are you looking to rent a car that is new or nearly new? When you search for a hire car with Clarify there is a unique filter which allows you to sort your results by the age of the vehicles the hire company provides in its fleet. The options to select are from under 12, 18, 24 and 36 months old, allowing you to choose your level of ‘newness’. The filter can be found by scrolling down the left-hand side of the page:
Through our great relationships with suppliers, we have been able to negotiate preferential terms for Clarify Car Hire customers with some car hire companies – even if a car hire company’s complete fleet is not all new stock, they have contracted with us that Clarify Car Hire Customers will get the newer cars (simply select the 12 month filter on your results in the normal way). Some of the companies that offer cars that are guaranteed to be under 12 months old include:
- Budget Ireland - 12 months
- Guerin Portugal - 12 months
- Hertz Greece - 12 months
- Locauto Italy - 12 months
- Olécar Spain - 12 months
- SIXT Malta - 12 months
Although not a category on our current filter, OK Rent a Car Spain go that bit further and offer cars that are guaranteed to be under 6 months old!
Perhaps with a family holiday with small children and all that entails, the thought of looking after a pristine car for a two week beach holiday fills you with dread, then simply leave the ‘Car Age’ filter blank. You will then see the full range of options available – the default age of a car hire vehicle is around 5 years. The cheaper firms tend to keep their fleets for longer periods of time and their prices reflect this.
This is a constantly evolving project for us here at Clarify Car Hire. We are continuing to liaise with our suppliers and will be updating the details of the cars on offer so that you the customer, get to choose a hire that suits you best!
