Auto-Europe feels huge World Cup boost

9th Jun 2006

The FIFA 2006 World Cup in Germany is upon us and the exodus has begun with
bookings for Germany at car hire broker rising a staggering 337% against 2005. This trend is expected to
continue if the England team wins through to the next stage.

The figures suggest that a large proportion of the 40,000+ England fans
expected to go to Germany this June are opting for independent travel.
After all, it only takes approx 2 hours to get from Frankfurt to Nuremburg
by car, and just under 4 hours to continue on to Cologne - that’s only 6
hours between England matches in the first stage of the competition - and a
week’s car hire starts at just GBP126 fully inclusive (price as of 9 June

As well as offering a complete World Cup stage one guide on its website,
competitive rates all year round, freedom of choice with no cancellation or
amendment fees, a 24/7 free-phone customer support number and a price
match guarantee; Auto Europe has also prepared a quick checklist for the
army of English supporters heading to Germany to watch the matches.
