Online PR News – 21-April-2010 – – The eruption of the volcano in Iceland last week Thursday has not only caused enormous turmoil in the air traffic and travel industry, but also in the car rental business.

Short notice bookings/changes: Since the volcanic ash cloud has moved in the direction of Northern Europe, thousands of flights have been cancelled and has left passengers stranded. Desperate travellers have tried to get from A to B by renting a car where possible, or have opted for overcrowded trains, ferries and busses. Those travellers who still need a rental car on short notice should consult a price comparison website, such as carhiremarket.com. Due to the high number of car rental companies worldwide, carhiremarket.com will help them find the best car rental option available.

One-way national rentals and the prices thereof are available with carhiremarket.com and can be booked, either online via the website or by calling our customer service centre.
Cancellations: When travellers have to cancel a car rental booking due to a flight cancellation they are in good hands with carhiremarket.com. Most car rental companies will not charge travellers for the cancellation if they cancel within 24 hours of the rental period.
