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 Driverso promises to introduce you to a parallel automotive world that’s less supermini, more supermodel.

There’s no better way to appreciate the natural landscapes that Europe has to offer than with a road trip.

Se tradizionalmente i beni e i servizi di lusso sono stati definiti dalla proprietà, dall'esclusività, dai prezzi elevati, dalla produzione ad alta intensità di manodopera e dalla qualità eccezionale, oggi il lusso sta assumendo una nuova definizione, legata alla percezione che il bene più grande che possediamo sia in realtà il nostro tempo.
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.

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.
