I’ve set a reminder for 17 Jan: Holiday Autos are offering a 35% discount for hire to Italy on that day so it will be worth checking out their prices. Auto-Europe has been the hands-down winner in the price war over the past year but last week both companies were neck and neck, charging about £170 for 2 weeks’ hire of a compact car so it will be interesting to see if Holiday Autos can better that on the 17th.
Incidentally, one of the Casa Capena guests had a bad experience with a car hired through HA over Christmas. It was unfair to blame them for the faulty car, though, as they simply act as brokers and find the cheapest deals from among the array of local car hire companies. In this case, it seems Allegiant was the culprit.
