New rental cars 2018-2019 in Heathrow, Milan and Malaga

Lots of new rental cars are available in the most popular destinations.

We have picked out a few of the latest offers for new models available in some of the biggest airports for business and tourism.

Cheapest car rental in Heathrow Airport
At Hertz, London-Heathrow Airport, the new Kia Picanto is available.

This vehicle is a small, but very well put together and  with a finish that is impressive for such a cheap runabout. All 5 doors in the Picanto including the hatch close with almost Mercedes-like feeling. 

If you are looking for the cheapest rental car in Heathrow Airport, this is the one to go for in 2018-2019.

Should you wonder if the Picanto is big enough for your luggage, take a look below. The total capacity of 225 liter trunk may not be class leading, but the car has a standard 60/40 split rear seat.

What makes this little gem the best small rental car 2018-2019 is that despite its size, it will be comfortable for up to 5 people (4 adults) and it is, surprisingly, fun to drive.

We have seen the Kia Picanto at Hertz, Heathrow Airport and with guaranteed new model too.  Other cars in this ‘Mini’ rental size of cars include Peugeot 108, Toyota Aygo and VW Up. The Kia Picanto is better!

For a business limousine in Heathrow Airport, look no further than the new Vauxhall Insignia (Opel Insignia on the European mainland). If you choose the estate version (Sports Tourer), you will have almost 5 meters of car waiting for you.

In this class, the trend is moving away from diesel cars, and the Insignia is perfectly suited with its new and extremely frugal 1.5 litre turbo gasoline unit with either 140 or 165 horsepower.

Avis, Europcar, Easirent and Enterprise in Heathrow Airport have the comfortable and well equipped Insignia rental cars at very interesting rates.

Lots of new rental cars 2018-2019 in Malaga Airport
In the tourist hub of Costa del Sol, customers will experience a range of new rental cars 2018-2019 which will match the needs for holiday makers.

Most popular car size at Malaga Airport is the ‘super-mini’ Ford Fiesta/VW Polo.

The new offerings for exactly this car size are plenty. In 2018, Volkswagen has already introduced the new VW Polo, which is slightly bigger than its predecessor.

Also new is the Ford Fiesta. The previous model was considered best in class and the new one looks to battle for the title with, especially, the improved and enlarged VW Polo.

As a new hire car in 2018-2019, you will also find Seat Ibiza, which is a favourite amongst car rental companies in Spain. Expect to see the Ibiza at almost all car renters in Malaga Airport / Costa del Sol.

City-cars and sports cars in Milan Airport (Bergamo, Malpensa or Linate)
Hertz in Milan offers the Insignia large car at low rental rates.

One of the best offers for a fun car in Milan-Bergamo or Milan-Malpensa airports is the Italian ever-green Fiat 500 Convertible.

Strictly speaking, it is a coupe with a folding roof, but the fun-feeling is very much on convertible level.

Driving with the electric roof folded back is great – if you are 2 or maximum 3 people on holiday in Italy. The luggage space is, well, modest. 185 litres is what you get, so you might need to pack in soft bags and use the rear seat as a double for trunk space.

The roof, actually, only folds in the centre section, so you are not so affected by wind in the Fiat 500C as in most other Convertible cars.

In the family friendly department, Sixt in Milan-Bergamo offers the BMW 2-series Active Tourer.

The BMW SUV-crossover vehicle is very practical when travelling with kids – and prices for rentals start below €200/£180 for a week at Sixt Milan-Bergamo. It’s a fun vehicle for mum and dad to drive as well – based on the new Mini Clubman as it is.
