Car Hire Prices

Is it just me or do prices seem to have jumped up since last year?!

We got an intermediate car for just over 200 for 1 week last October with Alamo.

In May we got an intermediate SUV car hire through Virgin and paid an extra 220 to upgrade our insurance to Gold to give us an extra driver, free tank of fuel and all car seats for 9 nights.

I'm looking for May 2020 and the prices are coming out at 380/390 for 7 nights ... I'm not sure if we just got a good deal the last couple of times or if this is really expensive?

This is via Alamo. I've sent off a quote request to Andy at Discount Florida Car Hire as I've heard good things. Searching online it doesn't bring up many options through the site though x

380 is very expensive. I'm paying 375 for a Standard SUV with Alamo in November. My advice is to keep checking sites like Netflights, Rental Cars and Auto Europe (sign up for their newsletter).

I started off at 455 and kept checking to get better deals.

Should have said that the 375 is for 14 days rental

Keep looking at the various sites.

I'd booked an intermediate with Alamo through Auto Europe (I usually find these always the cheapest) for 245.
I kept checking especially with their discount letter.
Changed again & got a convertible for 368, which in my eyes is a cracking price.

Ive just compared auto Europe prices with Virgin holiday prices for the dates I need and Virgin came in significantly cheaper like for like.👍🏻

Prices are high just now as it's still peak "where are we going on holiday in 2020" season as people are still coming back from their 2019 holidays, once this period passes then the prices will start to drop off to a more realistic level
