Jessica Potts, Head of Marketing at the firm said: “While restrictions are slowly being relaxed, we know that many people are diligently still being cautious about contact with other people”, while adding that the ‘one touch solution’ offered by the comparison site means that vehicles can booked in and collected in a contact free way.
