AMT’s existing fleet also includes the SL350 AMG Sport from Mercedes Benz as well as the Audi A3 TDi S Line.

“Despite our unpredictable weather, Brits love convertibles,” said Andy Crinson, manager of AMT Vehicle Rental.

“We always see a spike in demand for them around May time and this year we’re ready with convertibles increasing from 9 per cent of our 1,500-strong fleet to 17 per cent as we approach the summer period.

“We have already seen a 94 per cent surge in bookings from May to August this year.”
