Mini-Leases: A New Approach To Short Term Lease Cars

Flexible vehicle rental with Mini-Lease CLM is currently witnessing a surge of corporate interest in its Mini-Lease offerings, with bookings for the flexible, short-to-medium term rental product showing significant growth.

However, if the driver neglects or forgets to refuel at the end of the hire, then an extra charge for fuel will [...]

Business car hire for those short term requirements
