There is still time to book your car hire and car hire insurance for the 2011 summer holidays

Added: (Sat Jul 09 2011)

Pressbox (Press Release) - Many schools and colleges have broken up for the summer holidays, University students have all gone home and everyone is busy getting ready for their summer holidays. Many people will be renting a car and there is still time to arrange a rental plus car hire excess insurance from a specialist insurance company.

July and August are the busiest two months for holidays in the northern hemisphere. News has been released by Holiday Autos the long established car hire broker that car research they have carried out that in some countries prices have gone down from the 2010 highs. The cost of renting a car has risen exponentially over the past few years due to a number of factors, including the recession and recent natural disasters which have squeezed car manufacturers.

The fastest fall in price in the Holiday Autos survey was Ireland where prices have dropped by up to 51 per cent. This is very good news for tourists as Ireland needs as many tourists it can get with it's present economic situation.

Any tourist wanting to take their own car or motorhome will find it is incredibly expensive with return fares by car ferry costing over 400 from Britain to Ireland, whereas a return crossing from Britain to France costs around 130. This means it makes sense to fly and hire a car when you take a holiday in Ireland. However the Irish Government is increasing the way to attract more tourists to the country which is really good.

Insurance4carrental.com recently started promoting a new product. This is for companies thinking of setting up a car hire company or looking for insurance for their car hire vehicles. Insurecarhire which is a trading name of Sky Insurance Services Group Ltd offers this service. There are numerous smaller self drive vehicle rental businesses in the UK and there is a simple "obtain a quote page" on the insurance4carrental.com site.

Philip Suter of jml Property Services said. "It is still not too late to make bookings and arrange insurance, you must not forget your travel insurance and we promote a number of insurance companies including Staysure for the over 50's, Direct Travel, Essential Travel, Simple and Quotezone. We are also involved with the self catering holiday homes business via our long established www.jmlvillas.com business"

More information at www.insurance4carrental.com today to take advantages of the great deals the car hire and insurance companies are offering via that site.

Other destinations that have shown a fall in rental prices have been Spanish resorts and Gibraltar, however hiring a car in France or Switzerland is still expensive.

Insurance4carrental.com / jml insurance advertises car hire companies and car hire excess insurance companies. They are not a comparison site. Each advertiser has their own page and the visitor can then read through the information provided and choose the product they wish to buy.

Holiday Autos, Economy Car hire and Carrentals.co.uk advertise car hire and there are a large number of car hire excess insurance providers advertising. It is often a lot cheaper to buy your car hire excess insurance in advance from an independent insurance company. If you are taking more than two weeks holiday, or renting a car two three times a year it makes sense to buy an annual policy from one of these independents.

Insurance4carrental.com / jml Insurance promotes the following car hire excess insurance companies - insurance4carhire, Questor Insurance, Worlwideinsure, Essential Travel, Odyssey, daily CDW/SLI, dailyexcess.com, iCarhireinsurance and Protectyourbubble.

Any customer purchasing certain insurance4carhire.com or Questor Insurance via the dedicated links on the insurance4carrental.com / jml Insurance websites can currently benefit from discounted car hire excess insurance. The insurance4carhire.com Annual Europe 31 policy is being discounted from 49.00 to 39.20 and worldwide 31 from 65.00 to 52.00. Questor Insurance are continuing their 10 per cent discount till the end of 2011 and customers have to use the special discount code.

Many people taking holidays are renting a Motorhome. Holiday Autos rents out motorhomes, and Questor Insurance and Worlwideinsure can provide motorhome hire excess insurance for Motorhomes which are advertised on the insurance4carrental.com site.

Not everyone goes away on their summer holiday, other have to move home or stay at home carrying out DIY tasks and need to rent a van. Holiday Autos rents out vans and insuremyvanhire.com and iCarhireinsurance offer van hire excess insurance. Since Van hire excessinsurance was introduced to the jml insurance sites nearly two years ago a vast number of insurance sales have been arranged. Naturally many people only need a van for a day or so, but the risks are high if you don't have van hire excess insurance. Again it is cheaper to buy it from a specialist insurance provider rather than van hire company itself.
