Your Car Hire is a self-drive car hire broker with over 1 million cars throughout the world.
B2B only, we do not sell to the public at all, our main objective is to offer competitive rates with a very personal and bespoke service tailored to the individual agent.
Launched in 2003, Your Car Hire is headed by Ruth Bligh who has over 25 years’ experience in the car hire business, starting with the formative years of Holiday Autos.
Your Car Hire specifically targets those agents and tour operators whose clients need a vehicle as an integral part of their holiday rather than simply a means of transport. Golfers, anglers and families planning to tour from their self-catering or hotel base are examples of typical high value customers on which we focus.
We only use tried and tested suppliers who guarantee a certain level of service that we expect for our clients resulting in a less than 1% complaint rate.
