  • ITIC has predicted that the lack of an adequate supply of cars on the rental fleet this year could lead to a serious loss of business, particularly in the peak season.

  • It has called on the Government to address the issue in the Finance Act by introducing three remedial self-financing measures:

    - Postponing the proposed elimination of the Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) refund.
    - Introduction of a stimulus package.
    - Extension of the scrappage scheme to 2010 registered cars coming off this year's fleet.
