Spain and Portugal are traditional holiday destinations for thousands of visitors every year. Many visitors in 2009 were adversley affected by the rental car shortages which hit the major tourist resorts such as Alicante, Malaga and the Algarve. The credit crunch in Europe resulted in rental car companies cutting back the size of their fleets, and demand for hire cars outweighed supply. Many people turning up at the airports in the without a pre-booked car discovered that there were no rental cars available.

Matt May from Blue Valley Car Hire who car hire in the Algarve, Portugal and Malaga, Spain explains "last summer during the holiday period it was a nightmare for many tourists trying to book a rental car in Spain and Portugal. People who left booking until the last minute were lucky if they got a car, and if they did the prices were at least double the normal rates. The local rental companies simply did not have the cars available, and were having to pay astronomical prices to hire in cars at the last minute. The poor English summer weather made the situation worse with a lot of last minute holidaymakers heading for the sun".

Matt continues "we are anticipating a similar situation this summer. By booking early you will guarantee that a car is reserved in your name, and avoid having to pay the higher prices on arrival at the airport"
