Where’s cheapest to rent a car this Easter?!

Cheapest Car Hire this Easter, Sofia, Bulgaria

We know, we know, Christmas is only just out of the way, but how many of you are already planning a cheap Spring getaway over the Easter break?! We bet most of you are, but wondering where will be cheapest to go?

Between March 25th and April 1st, there are 2 bank holidays to make the most of (result being you’ll need to take less time off work!) making it an ideal time to get away.

We’ve taken 6 of our Car Hire providers and compared their prices across 12 worldwide locations for the week above. Using the same spec car, we wanted to find the cheapest provider over all, as well as the cheapest location – just as a little inspiration for you, not that you need it of course!

What did we find?

Cheapest for Car Hire in Easter, Sofia, Bulgaria


Across all 12 locations, Sofia, Bulgaria came up as the cheapest location to rent a car for a week, with the average price across the providers coming in at just £100!
This was in stark contrast to hiring the same car in Geneva, Switzerland which came in at a whopping £370 on average!

We also found that Budget Rent a Car came up as the cheapest on average, (does the name not give it away?!) and Avis came up as the most expensive, coming top of the list for 7 of the 12 locations! They also had the highest cost for rental in Geneva which is a staggering £482.27!!

However, we were pleased to see that our research tied in quite nicely with this piece from our friends at Airport Parking Shop on the cheapest locations to consider for your next holiday, where Sofia ranks one of the best for a getaway with friends.

So now we have whet your appetite, what’s there to do in our cheapest destination?
