School’s out for summer and the BVRLA has issued a press release providing top tips for holidaymakers planning on renting a car during the holiday period. Rental members are encouraged to share.

Gerry Keaney, Chief Executive of the BVRLA, said: “There are around 15.5 million vehicle rental transactions a year in the UK and as the holiday season approaches we are encouraging consumers to use a BVRLA member if hiring in the UK. This provides peace of mind that the rental company they are dealing with adheres to a rigorous Code of Conduct and meets industry standards.

“Customers also get the added reassurance of knowing that they have access to a government-approved Alternative Dispute Resolution service, available free of charge, should they have an issue that does not get resolved by the rental company. Those hiring in Europe are advised to use an European Car Rental Conciliation Service (ECRCS) member.”
