A good place to start is the adverts in the magazine and phoning round. Booking agents like Hoseasons and (I think) Blakes produce brochures covering the hire fleets they book for. If you get one it will usually give you maps and where the hire bases are. I used to get a brochure from a travel agents (don't know if they still stock them)and then phone around. ABC Leisure group are a large national company with hire bases all over the system. I am not sure where you will get truly unbiased reviews but you could ask on the Canal World Internet Forum ( Canal Junction (.com) will also have information. Tony Brooks
