Leading comparator advises travelling rugby fans on the best deals for car hire during the Rugby World Cup
With one of the world's largest sporting events under way, fans who are travelling to New Zealand for the Rugby World Cup can still get car hire for £24 per day according to the UK's leading car hire comparison site Carrentals.co.uk.
Thousands of fans from around the world have made the trip to New Zealand and with matches spread across the country, including games in Auckland, Wellington and New Plymouth, car hire is proving popular with fans who need to get from game to game.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: "The Rugby World Cup is a fantastic event, so it's no surprise that so many fans are making the trip to New Zealand. Many will be taking the opportunity to explore the country while they are there, so hiring a car offers the flexibility to take in the sites and easily get to the game locations.
"Despite the popularity of the event, there is still a choice of vehicles at many of the key locations, such as Auckland and Wellington, meaning fans can choose to travel together, sharing the cost of hiring the vehicle and running costs."
