Home Improvement – Blinds
- Channel 4 research found prices are much higher for British customers
- Claiming to be Norwegian or Australian produced a significant discount
- ‘Supershoppers’ programme on Channel 4 reveals more tips for bargains
- Presenters Andi Osho and Anna Richardson put products to the test
British motorists renting a car abroad should lie about their nationality if they want the best deal, an investigation has found.
When Channel 4 researchers tried to hire a Ford Focus with rental company Hertz, they were quoted £24.99 a day.
But by changing their country of origin to Norway, the cost fell to just 198.50 kroner – or £15.79.
Claiming to be Norwegian or Australian secured the researchers a much better deal on their holiday rental
A week later the same car was available for £66.98 a day.
If the hirer claimed to be from Australia, however, the price dropped by an astonishing £18.40 to just £48.50.
The Supershoppers programme on Channel 4 tonight reveals other ways that British consumers get a worse deal than their European counterparts.
Presented by stand-up comedian Andi Osho and presenter and writer Anna Richardson, the programme reveals money-saving tips and tricks of the trade.
The pair put products from some of Britain’s biggest brands and retailers to the test to see which are worth the price-tag.
