22 February 2010 With Easter around the corner and British tourists getting ready to make for the sunshine, award-winning car hire price comparator Carrentals.co.uk has issued advice to tourists to book car hire early. By reserving in advance travelers can be sure they get good deals and larger choice as car rental prices at Easter continue to rise.
Prices for vehicle hire at Easter continue to rise all across Europe, with car hire in Geneva having gone up on average by 13%* when compared with the price from last Easter.
Travellers need to book well in advance of heading away to be sure that they can get choice and availability in places like Alicante Airport, Faro, Rome or Tenerife this Easter. The price comparator reports that rental prices have been raised across Europe as a result of lowered stock on offer from providers.
Gareth Robinson, managing director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: Supply is on the lower side across Europe this Easter as car hire providers feel the pinch of the credit crunch. Banks are not backing them as previously so suppliers have been unable to replenish vehicles stocks meaning prices have gone up.
With that in mind our advice to people going on holiday for Easter is to book well ahead to find the value deals and have a big choice of cars to pick from. Our one-stop shop comparison service helps people to find the best deals from numerous suppliers on one website.
