UK tourists who want to get out of town for the long Bank Holiday weekend are still able to get themselves great value car hire, reports leading comparison website Carrentals.co.uk. The price comparator says that deals can still be had for as little as £10 per day.
Carrentals.co.uk states that although demand for car hire has increased year by year in recent times, rental providers are still offering cheap deals. In favourite destinations for UK tourists like Malaga and Alicante, car hire can still be had for about £30 for three days’ hire – perfect for a long weekend away.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “Brits do like to get away for a long weekend over the August Bank Holiday, meaning that demand for hotels and rental cars can be high. However the various rental companies seem to have kept prices low this summer, meaning that we can help people find some great value hire deals for their late summer breaks this August.”
“We can help people find a wide range of vehicles in many of the most popular places like Spain, France and Portugal – however we do advise early booking to get what you want. If you need a family car or a people carrier, or require special items like baby seats and bike racks, the smart move is to book as early as possible.”
