Compact Class - especially popular with Rental Cars

The compact class is one of the most popular vehicles for rental cars. Small families and couples in particular see countless advantages in the compact class. When it comes to renting a car, for example for a short city trip, many people book car from this category. For example, if you want to rent a VW Golf, select this vehicle class. Especially when you rent a car in Mallorca, compact class is popular as a rental car. In this vehicle category you can easily stow suitcases and still come through most of the Spanish lanes. 

Ideally for narrow roads

A rental car is usually booked for a stay at a holiday destination. Shorter city trips are also offered by some people, preferably by car. Therefore, enormous storage space is not absolutely necessary and the choice is often made for the compact class. There is enough space for one or two suitcases, and shopping can also be accommodated without any problems.

In addition, these vehicles are manoeuvrable enough to cope with urban traffic. The search for a parking space is less strenuous and driving through narrow lanes does not entail to many risks.

The compact class is manoeuvrable and offers enough space for up to four people and a little luggage. The bottom line is that these are all very good arguments when you want to rent a car.

Low prices in the compact class

If you want to rent a car, of course you can also look at the price. After all, it is often the available budget that determines which type of rental car is suitable. In the compact class, there are plenty of models to choose from, so there is something for every taste.

Rents for cars in the compact class are relatively low compared to larger cars. It is therefore worthwhile to take a look at the optional extras available. Car rental usually offers a choice of different versions in the classes, so that the customer can ultimately decide which equipment is best for him/her. For some, a standard version is sufficient and others will treat themselves to a little luxury when renting a car.

Apart from a reasonable rental price, it is the additional costs, such as gasoline or diesel, that are by far not as high in this class as in the case of larger vehicles. Even in terms of insurance, these cars are usually cheaper.

These are all advantages that are particularly well received by families. With the compact class car rental, you now have a flexible means of transport at your disposal, which saves you money and thus offers a little more space for excursions and other activities.
The cheap rents are only beaten by the small / economy cars. However, these are often unsuitable for families.
