In my experience it is cheaper to book in advance either through Ryanair or Easyjet sites. I have also been told that you can save money by shopping around and using other companies who will deliver the car to the airport! Would be interested to know how this works in practice and what happen s if your flight is late!!

Economy Car hire are only a broker, they use Solmar or Crown Auguira. When I booked through them with Crown ( In May) there was an extra charge for collecting the car "outside normal hours". I have never found any of the Easyjet / Ryanair offer cheaper that Economy or Somar-Online but might be worth a try

I have had results in the past from  http://www.holidayautos.co.uk

The major brands there, just discounted. Had off season cars for 150pw when the other people in the queue who went direct were paying 300 or 400.

Hi Thanks all, my wifes the one who trolls through all the sites,have used Solmar( via Econmy car Hire) with no probs,the best price she has so far is from doyouspain.com @97 euros for 4 days hire poss too cheap !!! ryanair/herts £194.23p the rest are around £150,  has anyone used doyouspain she has read some bad reviews.  This is turning out to be one of the dearest short trips in ages and the euros got better ?
Thanks again for your help

I always use Carjet, a Spanish company who have always searched for availability and come in with cheaper prices that the other agents.

I've used doyouspain many times in the past and have found them great.  Usually you end up getting the cars from either solmar, auriga crown and more recently goldcars.  Didn't have any problems in the past.  One advantage is that you don't have to pay up front - only on the day you get the car.  Last summer, I couldn't get a car in reus as they were all booked up - I booked in plenty of time this summer with doyouspain - car from goldcar..........Hopefully when I get there.

The nearest Halifax is in Barcelona but they dont work with the English branch. I went to Barce with a friend and they wouldnt let here take money out they needed 4 days notice. Whereby she would have been back home.

Dear Skiptonian -do you not have any services, insurances or taxes to pay direct from your Spanish accounts as they won't normally accept a British bank ?

Next time you are back in the UK, open up a Nationwide Flexaccount. Best banking move that I ever made. When drawing out cash here I get the top exchange rate with no other charges. Eg. I drew €100 on Nationwide and got €1.212 and then drew €100 on Barclays Connect and got €1.046! Also when making online payments to non Nationwide accounts the money goes through immediately, no waiting for 4 working days.
