Need More Room for the Kids? Need More Luggage Space? Carrentals.co.uk Launches New Price Comparator Site for People Carriers

March 15, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
March 15, 2011 Sourcing an appropriate rental car for large groups in the UK or overseas can often be a tough task, which is why Carrentals.co.uk has launched a new people carrier price comparison site. The new service is dedicated to enabling customers to enjoy travelling in larger numbers while making it more affordable.

The new service enables travellers to check the availability and cost of 7 15 seat vehicles in more than 10,000 locations around the world. Carrentals.co.uk is the first ever company to provide such as a service, which is now available for customers to make the most of at www.carrentals.co.uk/peoplecarrierhire.

Carrentals.co.uk Managing Director, Gareth Robinson, said, "There are so many elements to organising a trip - so struggling to fit all of your bags into a hire car should be one of the last things you want to worry about! Taking a trip with a large number of people can be stressful so by choosing to rent a people carrier - which is increasingly popular amongst families as well as big groups of friends - you're making things simpler. But the problem many people had was there wasn't anywhere they could check the cost and availability of the vehicles easily and quickly.

"Our new people carrier comparator solves this problem, and we are the very first to provide a sole search facility for these larger vehicles. Now customers can easily find a car for their needs, with search results showing vital details such as the number of seats, supplier and cost."

Each vehicle is placed into one of four categories, which include large people carriers, intermediate, standard size and compact. Customers will find each search result is displayed by supplier in price order, along with handy details such as type of transmission, number of seats and doors and whether the car has features such as a CD player and air conditioning.

Carrentals.co.uk new people carrier search facility will work in the same way as their existing car hire comparator works. Deals will be compared from up to 50 providers, with models available including Seat Alhambra, VW Transporter, Vauxhall Vivaro, Citroen C8, Chrysler Voyager, Ford Transit, Peugeot 807 and Renault Scenic.

Hundreds of low cost deals can be compared at via Carrentals.co.uk, with a plethora of top brands such as Budget, Alamo, Sixt, Holiday Autos and Auto Europe. To start comparing latest deals please visit www.carrentals.co.uk.
