Low-cost car hire with Auto Europe

Low-cost car hire with Auto Europe

Anyone who has travelled internationally by train, or any other mode of public transport for that matter, might possibly lament the amount of time spent hanging around at railway stations and/or bus terminals waiting for a departure that’s often delayed or even cancelled due to ‘unforeseen circumstances’.

Travelling by car certainly alleviates all of that.

With the enormous cost of university tuition these days, it’s fair to say that money is much more precious than ever. And the good news for students is that hiring a car is a major cost-saving exercise that doesn’t extend to rail or coach travel.

Up to five people can travel in an Auto Europe car hire at a fraction of the cost of a train ticket, with the added convenience of being able to stop where you want, when you want, and be back on the road in an instant.

And the opportunities are boundless. Take Croatia’s magnificent Adriatic Coast as an example, a road-tripper’s dream come true where car hire in Dubrovnik costs from just £5 per day, or an amazing £1 each (!) when five people are sharing the cost.

A more tried and tested destination for students taking to the road in an Auto Europe car hire is Spain’s sun-drenched Costa del Sol, less off-the-beaten-track than the Adriatic but equally appealing price-wise, with car hire in Malaga costing from as little as £4 per day, which is less than £1 per person with a group of five!

For around the same unbelievable low price, who could ever resist a relaxing drive around the gorgeous Greek island of Rhodes, where the sun shines for over three hundred days each year!

Alternatively, you can make your journey even more cost-effective by hiring one of Auto Europe’s mini-vans with seating for up to 12 people, making long-distance road-trips in places as far and wide as Australia, South America and Russia even more affordable.

By splashing a bit more cash, Auto Europe can offer you an exciting road trip in many of the world’s most exotic locations, such as Thailand, Malaysia, Mexico, Costa Rica and the beautiful Dominican Republic.

Success story

The story of Auto Europe began in 1954 when a young man called Alex Cecil started renting out his VW Beetle to travellers in Europe, hence the company’s name. Alex very sadly passed away in 2009 at the age of 79, but today the successful rent-a-car firm he founded all those years ago operates in all four corners of the world with a choice of 20,000 locations in 180 different countries!

It’s not just basic car hire that Auto Europe specializes in; customers can rent all sorts of vehicles ranging from a motorhome to a Maserati or a Fiat 500 to a Ferrari – always at the cheapest prices in the market.

When booking a car rental with Auto Europe, students benefit not only from the company’s sixty-plus years of experience but also from the reputation of its many distinguished partners, names you can trust like Budget, Thrifty, Dollar, Avis, Hertz, Alamo, Enterprise, Sixt and Europcar.

There are many distinct advantages for students booking an Auto Europe car hire. For instance, did you know that the company does not charge any cancellation or amendment fees up to 48 hours before pick-up? And were you aware that as an Auto Europe customer, you will never pay a credit card fee, ever?

Another important consideration for people travelling on a tight budget is the fact that Auto Europe’s daily car hire rates also include fire insurance, liability, collision damage waiver (CDW) and theft protection, giving you plenty of peace of mind whilst on the road.

By offering the most extensive car hire fleets and guaranteeing the lowest rates worldwide, no other company competes with Auto Europe on car hire.

Besides finding the best deals in the market, visitors to the Auto Europe website at https://www.autoeurope.co.uk/ can take advantage of special offers such as free car hire upgrades, free winter tyres, free additional drivers, GPS included, special weekend rates, etc.
