Since its formation in London in 1997, Car Hire Direct (a trading name of autobookers plc) has been offering online car rental reservations for affordable car hire in the USA, Canada, the UK & Ireland, mainland Europe, Australia & New Zealand, Asia, Africa, Middle East, South America and the Caribbean Islands.

Our online reservation system allows you to choose your destination, vehicle preference, holiday dates, add your age and our online booking form calculates the price for you. Our car hire quotes include Collision Damage Waiver, theft protection, airport fee, VAT & unlimited mileage in most locations (for exact details in a particular location, read our country specific terms and conditions or contact our reservations team).

Car Hire Direct is committed to serve our customers as quickly as possible. You can book your car by paying online through our secure credit card payment system. When the car has been requested from suppliers, a Car Hire Direct representative will contact you as soon as possible to confirm your booking. We will not charge your card until your vehicle has been confirmed. On receipt of payment we will send you a car hire voucher, redeemable at your holiday destination.

Our own exclusive car hire reservations team is there to help you hire a cheap and suitable car for your holidays or business needs. You may contact them using the details on the left, or by submitting a query using our online form which can be found here.

With a large variety of cars and countries to choose from, Car Hire Direct is the perfect choice for affordable car rental whatever your holiday destination. Use our online booking form and find yourself a great holiday vehicle hire deal.
