Car hire is really a simple product - you pay a company to hire a car for a set number of days, on the understanding that you will return it in the same condition as you hired it, excepting the fact it has a few more miles on the clock.

But then marketing departments get involved trying to make their companies product look better, newer or cheaper than everyone else's, and from that point on confusion reigns.

How do you compare a car with a full to empty fuel policy, with a large excess and a free additional driver to one which is full to full, offers an excess refund product but charges you more for the additional driver?

Well thats the sort of issue I aim to tackle, so that you both know what you are buying, and what is likely to be the best deal for you.
