Will my car have a Honk logo on it?
No. We are a car rental broker and our deals come anonymously from renowned worldwide and top local suppliers. Brands like Avis, Hertz, Budget and Alamo are our leading providers.
Are vehicles displayed on your website always available?
Over 90% of Honk bookings are confirmed. Occasionally a selected vehicle is not available, and in this instance we present you with alternatives, which you are under no obligation to accept.
When will my credit card be charged?
When your booking is confirmed.
Who owns and operates Honk?
Honk is a brand of Car Rental Republic who arrange rentals for hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers each year.
What did you have for breakfast this morning?
Granola muesli with blueberries and a capuccino.
Honk is a brand name you may not know much about for two reasons. Firstly, we're only a couple of years old and secondly we don't physically own our cars and have them driving around everywhere with our logo on them. Rather, we are a discount car rental booking service operated by one of the world's leading car rental brokers, Car Rental Republic.
Here's how it all works:
- You do a search on our site and all these great deals come up.
- You select a car and when it is confirmed we send you a confirmation.
- On the confirmation you find out the car is actually supplied by one of the big name or top local rental companies (eg Avis, Alamo, Hertz amongst others).
- You think, "yes that deal was so good - no wonder that leading brand wanted to advertise it anonymously!"
- You turn up and have a hassle-free rental experience in a great car.
