Press release from: warns customers not to be complacent about holiday car hire

22 November 2007 – Price comparator is warning customers not to be complacent about their car hire this festive season, as bookings surge by up to 100% in the run up to Christmas and New Year.

“The Christmas and New Year period is one of the busiest times for car rental companies, with people travelling across the UK and overseas to visit friends and family,” says marketing director Gareth Robinson. “While there is availability at present, from early December we see a strong increase in demand as travellers finalise their arrangements. We therefore recommend people book early to secure the car they need, particularly if they have certain requirements such as needing a people carrier or four wheel drive.”

The warning comes as estimates show a growing number of people will spend the festive period away from home, either in the UK or overseas. Last year an estimated 2.5 million people headed abroad for Christmas, with this figure set to increase for the 2007/08 season.
