New figures reveal that one in five Brits will be taking a holiday abroad during the Olympics.
Leading international leisure car rental specialist, Alamo Rent a Car, is therefore urging holidaymakers to book their car hire early to avoid disappointment and secure the best vehicle for their needs.
“The soggy British summer, combined with a weak Euro, means UK holidaymakers are heading overseas during July and August, with some travel agents reporting bookings up by over 200 per cent on last year,” said Neil Summerville, EMEA franchising director, Alamo Rent a Car.
“It’s easy to leave holiday car rental to the last minute, but with many Brits choosing to escape Olympic fever by going abroad this summer, it pays to book as early as possible for a stress-free trip.”
He added: “Alamo’s fully inclusive rates means travellers can budget easily, knowing exactly how much they have left those holiday extras.
“Booking in advance guarantees Alamo customers reserve the car to suit their needs, allowing them to concentrate on enjoying their trip.”
