LONDON, February 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
A leading car hire comparator advises those looking to book an Easter break to book in advance to ensure availability and to get the best deals
With Easter holidays around the corner, Comparecarhire.co.uk, a leading car hire comparator, is advising travellers to book as soon as possible to get the best deals and choice of car.
The company, which this year has seen a 56% increase in advance Easter bookings, has also noticed a change in destinations where travellers are visiting in the Easter break - popular locations this year include Spain and Portugal, while Switzerland was a popular choice last year for holidaymakers.
Andy Hemmington of Comparecarhire.co.uk, says: "This Easter we've definitely seen a change in booking - customers seem to want to get away for a relaxing break or even take a staycation here in the UK. As a result they are no longer booking holidays to favourites such as Switzerland but booking to visit newer locations including California.
"There is still availability on a range of cars, but if you are looking to book any extras such as child seats - the best advice is to book as early as possible, and compare prices from a wide range of rental companies to ensure you get the best deal as customers are booking much earlier than in previous years.
"Our advice is that if you know you're going away and need a rental car, don't leave it until the last minute. At best the price may be significantly higher, but at worst you may find a lack of availability for your particular location."
