Economy Car Rental is the largest independent car rental 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 Rental title at the Holiday Extras Customers' Awards, and a Business Award from the Daily Eastern Press. They were also a finalist in the Car Rental Provider of the Year category at the TTG Travel Awards, and were among the finalists in the 2011 Travolution Awards.

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

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 8 am to 7 pm on Monday to Friday and between 8 am and 5 pm on Saturdays. Their website also offers plenty of handy hints about driving abroad.

Economy Car Rental 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 reserved will definitely be waiting for you.

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

Skyscanner compares rental car prices from Economy Car Rental against other leading brokers, online travel agencies and rental car providers. With one quick glance you can find out which deal is cheapest, saving you both time and money.
