Great Last Minute Car Hire Deals Still Available in Many Holiday Hotspots


Sharing is caring!

The weather forecast may be gloomy, but Auto Europe has good news for
holidaymakers planning to escape the rain with a last-minute break abroad:
there are still sizzling seasonal car hire bargains available for last minute
travelers all across the USA as well as in Cyprus, Greece, Switzerland, South
Africa and Australia.

The message for anyone looking to hire a car abroad during August 2009,
is that there are still extremely competitive rates available in both Europe
and long-haul destinations. Auto Europe advises that consumers should search
car hire rates prior to committing to flights and accommodation as prices can
vary widely between different destinations.

Auto Europe’s Commercial Director for the UK and Ireland, Peter McAree,
explains:  “2009 has been the year of the last-minute booker. These uncertain
financial times have made many people reluctant to commit to holidays too far
in advance. In some cases this has led to disappointment – particularly for
customers travelling to Spain and Croatia – where car hire supply has at
times struggled to meet demand. But if you’re willing to be flexible on
location, you could still benefit from an attractive late deal.”

With the chances of a ‘barbeque summer’ looking increasingly
unlikely, early predictions that millions of holidaymakers will choose to
stay local this August could be proved wrong. But despite reports of
widespread fleet reductions in foreign resorts, those looking for a
last-minute break in the sun will still find competitive car hire offers in
many holiday hotspots.

To help customers feel confident to book car hire as early as possible,
Auto Europe will cancel or amend bookings for free as long as 48 hours or
more notice is provided in advance of the agreed car hire collection time.
