Car hire. Probably the two least-sexy words in the entire holiday lexicon. Hidden charges, insurance hard-sells, suitcases crammed into footwells to save £17 a day on the next class up. Yep, it’s been a while, I’m guessing, since a hire car got you hot under the bonnet.
It doesn’t have to be that way. A new company called, annoyingly, Driverso, promises to introduce you to a parallel automotive world that’s less supermini, more supermodel.
According to the company’s research, these are the top five cars Brits like to hire for their holidays…“There is no reason why people should leave their love of cars at home when they travel,” says Pierluigi Galassetti, managing director of Driverso, Europe’s largest luxury hire fleet. Although he reckons Brits “will often put comfort and style over raw performance or ostentatious styling”.
Renting a car can be a disheartening experience. Long queues at the airport, signing a Collision Damage Waiver form, waiting to see which depressing diesel hatchback you’ll be spending the week with.
But there is another way. Driverso (not a made-up name) handles Europe’s largest luxury hire fleet, offering everything from supercars to super-plush saloons. The Rome-based company has revealed the most searched-for makes and models across the continent, including the most popular in our nation’s capital. Here, we reveal the rental dreams of Londoners in search of luxury transport.
When renting a car on business, having the right set of wheels counts. Whether it’s making a good impression with prospects, demonstrating your status or bringing some horse-power filled joy into time away from home, what you drive matters.
