5 Benefits of Booking Vehicle Hire Early

Posted on by Whitgift Hire Team


There are many reasons why people hire a vehicle, be it for moving home, travelling back and forth to university, holidays, romantic getaways or shifting goods.

Whatever your intention, Whitgift are here to provide you with friendly, honest advice to ensure you get the best deal, the car you desire and all the extras you have in mind.


1. Cost

It goes without saying that we all like a good deal, which is why we recommend that you book your vehicle hire early. Like all things, as the demand becomes higher and the cars get fewer, the prices can skyrocket.

This is a good reason to make your booking early, to ensure you get the most for your money and have more in your pocket to spend on your journeys.

2. Availability

Easter, summer and Christmas holidays, are periods when car hire companies are generally at their busiest and where demands are at their peak. For workers it’s time for them to get away from the hustle and bustle of life, and for the children it’s time for them to forget exams for a short while.

As you can imagine, with so many customers trying to book the same services all at once, you may find yourself with little choice if you leave your booking to the last minute. We advise that you plan and prepare, so you can hire the vehicle you require.

3. Better choice of vehicle

Whether you’re hiring a car for work or pleasure – it’s nice to have variety. Everyone wants to feel comfortable in a new car that they will be driving, especially in a new place, so make sure it’s your first choice every time.

Hire a car or van to transport things to and from university, a lorry to move home, a people carrier for a family holiday or a sports car for a luxurious getaway. Don’t be restricted by time, speak to a friendly expert who will talk you through the process should you need any advice.

4. Confirmation

Should the confirmation of your booking be delayed and take more than a few days to come through, for whatever reason – it’s good to give yourself enough time in case there are any issues.

5. Extras

If you book a vehicle last minute, you may not be able to get hold of the extra bits such as Sat Navs and child seats. Suppliers have a limited amount of these, so it’s important that you plan in advance to ensure the company can provide you with all you require.

Whitgift Hire have been established for over 30 years, offering services throughout London and the South East of England. Providing an honest and professional service, keeping well-maintained vehicles to ensure each and every customer is supplied with only the best.
