United Kingdom (PRUnderground) December 5th, 2011
Christmas is almost upon us and according to a leading car hire website UK tourists and travellers are acting early to ensure they get the festive car hire they want this year. eRentals.co.uk, which helps people save money on rentals in over 12,000 locations, has reported a rise in advance bookings of 38% ahead of Christmas.
The website reports that car hire is usually considered to be a late addition to a rental booking, but this year travellers from the UK appear to be planning ahead better. More and more people have become aware of the need to reserve car hire early to get the vehicle and price they want.
The most popular locations for car hire at Christmas this year include Geneva, Heathrow Airport, Lisbon, Faro and Manchester Airport, as lots of Brits head away to visit relatives and friends over the festive period.
Briony Fairbairn of eRentals.co.uk, commented: “Usually we see loads of last minute bookings in the week running up to Christmas, but this year it seems more and more are planning ahead and being better organised. This increases their chances of getting the car they want at the price they want.”
“Times of year like Christmas see demand for people carriers or 4x4s go through the roof, with people heading away to see family and friends. Child seats and other extras are in high demand too, and people who book last minute can end up disappointed. It certainly seems that people are being better prepared this year so we expect these early bookers to enjoy a better rental experience.”
