With just over six months to go until the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, www.2tsrental.com is already reporting strong demand for the period. The seventeen days of the games coincide with the school summer holidays when demand is usually already at its peak. The extra demand from the Olympics is expected to put huge pressure on top locations.
The majority of the events take place in the capital and tourism to London is expected to reach unseen highs during and after the games. The UK’s and worlds third busiest airport, Heathrow is expected to take up a lot of the strain whilst Gatwick and Stansted are preparing to support the capitals primary transport hub. Car hire Heathrow Airport is expected to see unprecedented demand this summer and with prices starting from just £15 per day in July 2012, 2T`s Rental recommend booking now to avoid escalating prices and even a shortage of rental cars.
Other Olympic events are taking place at venues across the UK and some may find it easier to collect a car at one location and return it at another, a service offered by 2Ts Rental. Weymouth is hosting the sailing events whilst Manchester’s Old Trafford football stadium hosts men’s and women’s football. Car hire is available close to both locations including Manchester and Manchester Airport meaning that during your Olympic stay, you’ll never be far from your own means of transport.
