Avis offers advice for avoiding August bank holiday rail disruptions

With a number of rail improvements scheduled for this bank holiday, the nation is bracing itself for a weekend of chaos and disruption across the public transport network. As such, leading car hire company Avis UK, today offers consumers advice to help them reach their destination with minimal hassle and for less than they might think. 

With 25 of the UK’s 29 rail franchises expected to run reduced services over the bank holiday, and train tickets continually on the rise, an increasing number of UK holidaymakers are expecting major disruption to their plans this weekend and at great expense.

The decision by some of the UK’s major supermarkets to slash petrol prices in the run-up to the bank holiday makes car hire an affordable alternative to rail travel. Avis offers a wide selection of hire vehicles to choose from and has some great summer deals on offer, bringing a convenient option to customers without breaking the holiday budget.
