5 MARCH 2012 – Spain's rental car industry is this summer going to feel the impact of the possible closure of one of its leading rental car suppliers, meaning less availability of cars for holidaymakers.

The warning comes from leading car hire comparison website, which says that the possible closure of a top company will have a negative impact on car availability in Spain for the summer. The company's going to the wall means that there may be as many as 18,000 fewer cars on offer to tourists - meaning increased prices as a result.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of, says: “The key to getting choice and availability - plus good value - is to book your rental well in advance of travelling."

“The shortage of available cars for rent can be negated somewhat by using our site to compare car hire deals in Spain from up to 50 providers. If the larger companies are out of stock for example, we can help people to find a car in their destination from a smaller supplier.”

Users can log on at present and find Spanish car hire deals like a week rental in Malaga from just £17* a day, £18* a day in Alicante, from £19* a day in Palma and from £21* a day in Ibiza.

Gareth goes continues: “Anyone who was planning to rent a car in Spain this summer might want to review their rental coupon and contact the supplier directly to check that everything is well with their booking.” compares car hire deals from up to 50 rental companies, including Alamo, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt in over 15,000 locations worldwide.
