Shortage of cars for the summer

Did you know that from 2008 to 2009 the fleet for tourism rental cars available in Portugal dropped by 20% from 50.000 cars to 40.000. This was matched by a similar drop of 20% in clients looking to rent cars but only outside of the peak months! The drop off in clients during the months of July and  August was just less 3% (Portuguese Tourism Board numbers), which meant there was a shortfall of 9.700 cars during this period, equating to a total of around 30.000 rentals requests which were unable to be fulfilled. With further reductions in the number of cars held by the various rental companies the situation is expected to be even worse in 2010.

·         All bookings taken and confirmed by Amoita will be honoured and we guarantee to provide the Costumer with a car.
·         Our rates are already very competitive and will stay fixed even when search will exceed the offer.
We strongly recommend that, if you do not want to be disappointed,  you book as soon as possible because we are already receiving many requests for rentals and when they are gone, they are gone.
 
Note: Amoita is proud to be one of the very few Car rental Companies not letting down costumers in this last complicated summer.
