If I need a car for less than a week, is it cheaper to hire daily or weekly?

We explain at which point a weekly rental becomes cheaper than daily hires, and why it may be cheaper to hire a car for a week rather than 6 days!

When is a weekly rate best for me, and does it affect my car hire insurance policy?

If you are looking to rent a car for 5 or more days you might find that a weekly rate is cheaper. As there are companies around who require a 7 day booking to unlock these rates we suggest you use both options when putting dates in any search. Some car rental companies have now started marketing this as 7 days for the price of 5!

If you do book a car for seven days though, you will need to book any supporting insurance for the full period - do take this into account when making your calculations, but remember an extra day's European excess insurance can cost less than £2 through car hire insurance companies represented on the MoneyMaxim car hire insurance service.
