Get a Quote for Automatic Car Hire Fast
It is becoming more and more common to own and drive an automatic car, especially with the rise in electric cars on the road, and when most people go away and rent a car, they often want to stick with what they know. Use our filter to compare quotes for renting automatic cars.
Why should I choose to rent an automatic car?
Whether you have an automatic car at home or you took the driving test for an automatic and therefore cannot drive a manual, hiring a car which does not require manually changing gears can really take the stress out of driving abroad. Navigating unfamiliar roads along with being in control of a car that is new to you can be difficult alone without throwing in driving on the 'wrong' side of the road. One of the hardest skills is using a gear stick which is on the other side than the one you are used to. With an automatic there is no clutch or gear stick to worry about.
What are the benefits of hiring an automatic car?
Hill starts are easy! If you are driving in a mountainous region, hill starts are something you would need to have mastered in a manual vehicle. In an automatic there are no fears about the car rolling backwards or stalling.
Sitting in traffic is less tiring. That constant up and down with the gears when you are in a traffic jam or queuing is a thing of the past with an automatic car.
Less distraction. Your focus needs to be on the road around you and sometimes grappling with a gear stick can make it hard to enjoy the drive. Let the car do the difficult work for you so you feel more in control.
How can Clarify Car Hire help me find quotes for an automatic car?
Using our special transmission filter shown above can narrow your search down to just automatics. Your results will allow you to easily compare cars that you are happy to drive rather than having to wade through quotes to find which ones are automatic and which ones are manual.
We offer reassurance. Most car hires are sold on an 'or similar' basis. If you book an automatic car through Clarify, you will be provided with an automatic car, even if the car model changes.
Are there always automatic cars available to rent?
In countries such as the USA where driving an automatic is far more common then you are highly unlikely to run into any problems. Across Europe car rental companies tend to have lower stocks of automatics as the majority of people drive a manual. This may well change in the coming years though! If you particularly need to hire an automatic car then book early, especially in peak seasons, before supplies run low.
Can I make sure I rent a manual car? What if I can't drive an automatic?
Not everyone is comfortable driving an automatic, though it is probably easier to get used to than a manual. You can use our transmission filter to get quotes for just manual vehicles but do bear in mind that you may not find many options if you are off to the United States where stick shifts are far less common.
