Easter 2018 car hire

Why are prices for next year suddenly so expensive? Im kicking myself I didnt book a 12 seater passenger van at 895 a few months ago when I saw it - same thing now 1535 so best option at moment is 2 vehicles as 2 of our party are leaving early. Is 751 for a 7 seater for 20 days with Europcar including all excesses a good price? We are going from and returning from Miami.Then a focus for my brother for just over a week at 240 picking up at Miami dropping off at Tampa. Plus the extra parking costs at the theme parks of course! 😫

Supply and demand in action sadly. Plus factor in known busy periods such as easter etc and you have a perfect storm
It's the old story. Book early and use a company that offers free cancellations.

We are doing a sneaky 8 night break in March. I paid 240 and thought that was dear. Now it's double that everywhere.
But for our other 3 trips out there I booked as soon as the dates were loaded on by Alamo Brits. Saved big money.

Edit. If you give me your exact dates for a 12 or 15 seater I will have a look but I am popping out for 2 hours.

That's going to cost! Your times are outside of the norm, you should drop it back before or at the same time you collect it or they can hit you for another day's hire.

OK
Alamo Brits - Cheaper to buy a house!
Virgin - Not showing a 12 or 15 seater
Andy - Similar to Brits
Netflights - Even more expensive than Brits.

I think you have missed the boat and need to drop to plan B with 2 x vehicles sadly.

Andy where is the 890 price? Is Dollar bad? It used to be the one everyone used years ago, what insurances has that got?

It's through myself... I just don't list Dollar on my site as I'm not a fan (v expensive toll system, staff who constantly try and add extras but then that's the same with any of them, trying to upgrade although that's not really an issue for a 12 seater). All the required insurances included so nothing to pay locally. If you want to drop me a quick email I'll send you through the details.
