In car rental, ‘luxury’ or ‘premium’ cars are great for travelling in style. These are cars made by high-end brands with luxury features: a sleek look, comfy seats, plush interior and powerful engine, for example.
Luxury cars will usually fit 5 people, with 2 large suitcases plus 2 small suitcases. You’ll also find luxury estate cars, SUVs and crossovers, depending on where you rent.
Rental companies change their fleet frequently, and they often don’t know precisely which cars will be available because some cars will need cleaning, servicing, repairing and replacing. This is why every rental car has ‘or similar’ next to the make and model you’re looking at. If you choose to rent a luxury car, the ‘or similar’ options will be other luxury cars. Some car hire companies will however guarantee a specific model for their premium/luxury cars.
Luxury cars are the highest-end car group available.
