Cycle carrier for a hatchback

Picking up a new Audi A3 sportback tomorrow and looking for recommendations for a cycle carrier to go on the rear. Looking at taking my mountain bike, and the wife's bike, and eventually my sons too, as well as being able to carry my carbon framed ROAD bike, not all at once mind. Off to France in a couple of weeks with the mountain bike, and want to transport my road bike to events without damaging the frame. (I've already got a single roof carrier, but always been nervous of putting the carbon from on it!) I was looking at the Halfords (I know, I know, but it gets good reviews) 3 cycle carrier at £59.99, but has anyone got experience of it, and would you rate it, or is there something else out there better for the money?

    Saris Bones - more expensive, but really sturdy, very adjustable and easy to fit. Might find a second hand one on eBay.

    I had one of them red bikes but I don't any more. Sad face.
