Holiday Autos Advise Booking car Hire Abroad Early to Take Advantage of Silver Anniversary Sale This May


WOKING, England, May 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

One in five (19%) of today's travellers are putting themselves at risk of not getting a hire car for their holiday this year by planning to wait until they get to the airport before arranging car hire, according to Holiday Autos.

Figures from the UK's largest car hire broker reveal that these "car hire chancers" face paying up to 30% more for car hire if they book last minute (less than a month in advance).

Holiday Autos is advising customers to hire well before they fly in order to avoid paying extra for their holiday car, with now being the perfect time to book as Holiday Autos continues its 25% sale on car rentals in 25 of its most popular destinations, launched to celebrate its 25th anniversary.

The second week of the sale will feature popular family favourites such as Tenerife, Lanzarote, Dalaman and Bodrum, while closer-to-home city breaks in Barcelona, Salzburg and Vienna will also prove value for money. If you want to make it a German affair, those booking car hire in Berlin, Frankfurt and Munich will also enjoy the anniversary discount this week.

    Tue 8 May    Barcelona
    Wed 9 May    Tenerife
    Wed 9 May    Lanzarote
    Thu 10 May   Munich
    Fri 11 May   Salzburg

    Sat 12 May   Dalaman

The car hire sale runs until 25 May so watch this space for announcements of further destinations.

The car hire sale launches on 1 May, running until 25 May 2012, and is valid for bookings until 31 October. It offers all customers the chance to save 25% on all selected cars in different locations each day for an exclusive 24 hour period only.

Isabelle Ratinaud, MD of Holiday Autos says "We've seen a huge amount of evolution in car hire over the 25 years we've been in business and thought it was only right to celebrate with an extra special offer.  Hopefully our anniversary sale will encourage more people to book earlier to enable them to explore and fully enjoy their holiday destination this year, be it sunny beach breaks or cultural city getaways".
