Each day, countless travelers scour the web for the best travel deals and advice, and when it comes to getting a great rate on a last-minute international car rental, this just so happens to be our area of expertise. Travelers will find an even bigger return when they choose to book their last-minute car rental through a broker like Auto Europe. Take a look at the top 7 perks of how planning your trip last minute will prove to be an invaluable decision.
As a broker, Auto Europe works behind the scenes to bring you the best prices possible for an array of car rental suppliers (Hertz, Budget, Avis, Enterprise, etc), which are typically even better than the prices offered individually by each supplier. When these companies have inventory they need to move, Auto Europe is the first to know, and we are able to offer a wide selection of vehicles at prices that simply cannot be beat. When traveling, cab and bus fares add up quickly, especially if you’re planning on doing a decent amount of sightseeing during your time away. If you’re visiting a larger European city, you probably won’t be able to cut out public transportation altogether, but a rental car will significantly reduce how much you depend on it.
With unparalleled access to over 20,000 pick-up locations in over 130 countries worldwide, renting a car in a foreign city could not be easier. Perhaps you are looking forward to a relaxing getaway in Italy, but are looking to avoid venturing into larger cities like Rome or Milan. Initially, you probably figured you would have to in order to collect your rental car, but when you rent with Auto Europe you will be able to find a pick-up office in even some of the smallest Italian cities. A car rental is also a great option if you are traveling with someone who has limited mobility. There are some European metro systems that are not particularly kind to users who have trouble walking for long stretches or climbing stairs. Some stations are well-equipped for travelers with limited mobility and disabilities, but you might find that these are few and far between.
Not all companies are able to offer a diverse selection of car rentals last minute. Thankfully, when you work with Auto Europe, we can get you the car with the space you need. Renting a larger vehicle, like an SUV or a van, provides you with the ability to travel with a larger group of people. For families working out the logistics for a ski retreat in Switzerland, you will soon come to the conclusion that having a rental car with additional space at your disposal is the only realistic option for easy transport of your luggage and equipment. In addition to the issue of space, snow-covered and icy roadways are also inevitably on tap for any Swiss adventure, so you’re sure to feel more secure behind the wheel of a rugged SUV like the Range Rover Evoque.
More Time to Enjoy Your Surroundings
After you have picked up your rental car, you will find the accessibility it provides will enable you to discover your host city on your own terms. It’s true that a car rental and public transportation can augment each other, creating a truly unique way to travel, but when you make the decision to free yourself from the restrictions and limitations of pricey cab rides and unreliable train and metro schedules completely, you are opening up a new world of possibilities for your vacation. For some, a European vacation is an opportunity that doesn’t come around every day, and many of these individuals have their hearts set on visiting as many cities as they can in a relatively short amount of time. There are certain instances where Auto Europe is able to help you arrange a one-way car rental, which allows you to pick up your rental car in one city and drop it off in another; providing you with the ability to cover more ground and see more sights!

For many individuals, having rental options celebrated for their superior performance and engineering excellence is extremely important, and depending on your needs, choosing to arrange a luxury car rental could be a fantastic option. Perhaps you need to keep up appearances in front of business associates, or are looking to surprise your significant other with a vehicle from our prestige fleet; whatever your needs may be, Auto Europe is able to accommodate all tastes. If you don’t have any specific reason to arrange a high-performance car, just take inspiration from the glamorous locale you’ll be venturing to.

It’s no secret that all trips are best accented by performance and style.
