Economy Car Hire is the largest independent car hire broker in the UK. They currently operate in 55 countries, with pick-up points in 900 airports.

Launched in 2000, the family run company is going from strength to strength: and has a plethora of awards to prove it.

In 2012 the company took home the Best Car Hire title at the Holiday Extras Customers' Awards, and a Business Award from the Daily Eastern Press. They were also a finalist in the Car Hire Provider of the Year category at the TTG Travel Awards, and were among the finalists in the 2011 Travolution Awards.

Economy Car Hire offer a few perks to their customers, such as the ability to add an extra driver for free. Their quotes include unlimited mileage, collision damage protection, theft protection, and breakdown assistance. They also offer a 5% discount on online bookings.

Building relationships is important to the company. They're social media savvy, often getting involved in #TTOT (Travel Talk on Twitter) discussions. Their customer service team is available on the phone from 8am to 7pm on Monday to Friday and between 8am and 5pm on Saturdays. Their website also offers plenty of handy hints about driving abroad.

Economy Car Hire is different from other online brokers, as they wait for confirmation from their partners before sending a confirmation email to their customers. This means a short wait, but it also means that the car you've booked will definitely be waiting for you.

Remember to bring both parts of your driving license with you when you go to collect your car. Economy Car Hire's partners also ask the named driver to bring a credit card registered in their name, for security purposes.
