Do you prefer to hire newer cars on holiday?

Now there is a way to make sure your rental car is a newer model

Many people like to know that the hire car they have booked is a newer model. If you are on holiday it is preferable to drive around in comfort and also have confidence that your rental vehicle is unlikely to develop any mechanical issues.

You can try and delve around on each of the car hire companies' websites to find out what ages their vehicles tend to be but this can take a lot of time and effort. Our sister site Clarify Car Hire can now do all the hard work for you so you can be sure what age of car you are getting.

Clarify Car Hire has introduced a filter which allows you to choose the age of car you are happy with. This will then arrange your results to display the appropriate cars that are available for you. Select from a range between under 12 months up to 60 months.

The car hire companies listed are asked to let Clarify know how old their vehicles are. This avoids you having to do the research yourself! And if there are any changes these are updated immediately. Some companies exclusively offer Clarify Car Hire users the option of a newer car. In this instance Clarify Car Hire will show you the age of the vehicle you will be reserving and not the maximum age of those cars in their fleet.

Some car hire sizes may be kept for a longer period of time than others. These can include the larger vehicles with more seats as they tend to do less miles. Clarify Car Hire updates the vehicles in each category so you can be sure you will be hiring the age of car of your choice.

This filter is just one of several offered by Clarify Car Hire to help you reserve the rental car that is just right for your needs.
