With an increasing want from today’s more discerning holidaymaker to explore a destination; car hire has become a very popular addition to a break away.
This extra has been adding value to package deals, making more remote locations that fall just outside of the main resorts accessible or indeed opening up the tour options for those that wish to escape them. Hiring a vehicle is a highly popular choice for those opting for villa holidays just off the beaten path and can also be a more cost effective way of transporting your family and friends to and from the ports, train stations and airports.
The vehicle range is extensive from small mini, small economy, compact, people carrier’s and vans or many providers also have a prestige or luxury range which encompasses high end vehicles, sports cars and executive transport.
While fly-drive holidays may well have been a staple part of a trip to the likes of Florida, USA; the principle of freedom that this type of break affords is now gaining fans throughout the cities of Europe. Car and van rental can bring this linked region even closer together for multiple city breaks within one trip and lighten the load for the ski set and golfers, as it makes transporting your sports equipment a far more pleasant and budget-friendly experience. Most merchants will also now offer GPS options and packages, so that you can easily find your way from travel links to accommodation and from city to city.
The current popularity of British staycations has also increased the uptake of weekend and short break hire and many of the international merchants available through TravelPixel, such as Hertz, Avis, Budget Rent-a-Car, Holiday Autos and Alamo will offer country specific deals such as this or weekend offers, free upgrades, free fuel or free days. In general these merchants offer car rental deals and packages that regularly provide such features as unlimited mileage, collision damage waiver, liability protection, risk reduction, state and local taxes or surcharges and discounts on additional drivers, but it’s always worth looking through the many merchants available for particular special offers.
