AMT Vehicle Rental doubles convertibles fleet for summer

The Leeds headquartered vehicle rental business has added a further selection of models including the Mercedes-Benz SLK250 Convertible, the E-Class Cabriolet and the Jaguar F Type V6 Convertible. AMT’s existing fleet also includes the SL350 AMG Sport, the SL63 AMG and the E250 AMG from Mercedes Benz as well as the Audi A3 TDi S Line.

The convertibles are available from AMT’s seven UK locations: Edinburgh, Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham, Gatwick, London (Enfield) and Bristol.

Andy Crinson, general manager of AMT Vehicle Rental, said: “Despite our unpredictable weather, Brits love convertibles.  We always see a spike in demand for them around May time and this year we’re ready with convertibles increasing from 9% of our 1,500-strong fleet to 17% as we approach the summer period. During the hot spell in July 2015, the number of convertibles rented from us was almost a quarter higher than during our previous record number and we have already seen a 94% surge in bookings from May to August this year.

“With convertible vehicles featuring increasingly sophisticated roof systems which take away all of the hassle traditionally associated with taking the roof down, their enduring appeal is proving more popular than ever and attracting a wider range of customers.”
