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 five or more days you might find that a weekly rate is cheaper. As there are companies around who require a seven 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 seven days for the price of five!

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.
