Most car hire companies operate on a 24 hour clock - so if you take a car out at 2 p.m. you only pay one day's hire as long as you return it before 2 p.m. the next day.
Some car hire insurance companies operate on a 24 hour clock (as above) but others on a calendar day basis (where the hiring above would count as two days rather than one).
Our comparison service asks you to put in a date and time when you are requesting a car hire quotation so that we can accurately calculate the correct premiums for you. We want you to understand why some prices may differ!
