    Car rental availability on Weekends

    Usually, the availability of car hire is dependent on a combination of factors, such as booking during high and low season, or how popular your chosen destination is. However, if you choose to book through Auto Europe, you can be sure that no matter what time of year or how busy the city, we will find a car for you, thanks to our relationships with a vast number of international and local suppliers in locations worldwide. This means that our customers can simply focus on choosing the car hire that best fits their needs, without worrying about competing with other customers over a limited selection of vehicles.

    Our most popular vehicles tend to be the same cars that most of us drive at home. Year in, year out, our customers return to Auto Europe and choose compact, estate, mid-range and full-size vehicles to enhance their weekend city breaks and road trips. The number of persons travelling and their combined budget has a large influence over which cars our customers tend to choose, however low cost cars in the mini and economy categories often prove very popular. Bigger groups usually choose to hire a full-size car or a seven-seater van, so as to comfortably fit each person and their luggage. Other factors that commonly affect the availability of our fleets are:

    • Choice of destination: popular city versus lesser-visited rural location.
    • Choice of date: peak versus shoulder or low-season.
    Shoulder Season Weekend Car Rentals

    The terminology, ‘shoulder season’ refers to the months just before and after peak season, which varies from place to place. This period is usually synonymous with decent weather at slightly lower (often more pleasurable) temperatures than summer, less crowds and lower prices. During these periods, lower demand means greater car hire availability for customers.
    Off-Season Weekend Car Rentals

    Generally, this quieter period has an effect on local businesses that revolve around the tourist trade. Often restaurants and shops close temporarily or reduce their opening hours. In some locations, the weather will be less desirable, unless of course you are planning a snow-sports holiday. In terms of car hire, this can have the positive knock-on effect, meaning that fleets are fully stocked and prices are often unbelievably low.
