Hi I'm Mark Bower, the UK's Car Hire Champion

Over the past few years I have helped over a quarter of a million people save money on car hire - let me help you too!

Start saving money on car hire

Back in 2009 when I started offering car hire services through my money saving website moneymaxim.co.uk, I couldn't believe the number of ways car rental firms had found to increase the base cost of car hire. In some cases they made lo-cost airlines look like saints! So I set about finding ways of doing it better and over the last five years I have:

  • created the UK's first (and currently only) full car hire excess insurance comparison service - typically we save users between 50% and 90% on prices from desks or brokers.
  • added car hire - so now with one search we compare both car hire and excess insurance prices - comprehensively and transparently.
  • started the first website to compare 'fair fuel' prices from both car hire companies and brokers.
  • launched a car hire extras service which offers extras such as sat navs and mobile wifi at a fraction of car hire desk rates.
  • ensured whatever we do we do with our users in mind - so customer assistance is available through an 0800 number, 7 days a week - no email only contact or 10p a minute phone lines on our sites.

That's just a few of the market leading ideas we have had (there are many more!) - all resulting from my determination that my visitors should be well informed as to their choices, leaving them empowered and able to find the car hire deal that best suits them.

We have also made sure of one other thing. That we are totally independent and impartial. Unlike most similar sites we do not have suppliers or insurers as shareholders, meaning we can always put our customers first. I cannot stress how important we consider this to be, and how often this delivers benefits for our users. This means you benefit as we make much smaller margins than most in the industry - but we benefit as the number of customers who return to us year after year grows all the time.

Please feel free to browse my site and share in the knowledge that my team and I have accumulated over the years. Better still download my totally free ebook 'The Car Hire Champions Guide to Car Rental'. It's stuffed full of great tips, hints and short cuts to great value rental.
