Maybe not, prices go up and down like a fiddler's elbow. I saw someone on here post a few weeks back how Virgin was really cheap just then and went on and booked.

I used to use Virgin Atlantic for my car hire all the time, always cheaper than Brits.
However things have changed with them. Some dates are good prices, others aren't
But in their defence I would say that Brits has some insane prices for certain dates.

An example is an 8 day rental in March 18. I paid a tad over 200 and now it's over 400.

My advice from many years of booking and tons of research. Book it the day your return date for the car is available. Book it with a firm that gives you free and hassle free cancellation e.g. Brits and Andy etc.

Pays off every time for me and I very rarely have to cancel and rebook as it's become cheaper.

Also dont ignore Netflights, tend to have good rental prices with Alamo.

My dates are July 27th to August 10th.

Also I thank everyone for their replies but I am looking for a 7 seat minivan not a SUV.
