London, UK (RPRN) 10/04/11 — Online specialist offers customers money-saving advice on rental cars during the 2012 summer Olympics in English capital
There are just 10 months left on the clock before the start of the 2012 Olympics in London, and spectators' plans are already taking shape. Leading car hire rate comparison website Carrentals.co.uk wants travellers to be aware of potential problems with increased car hire demand as the big day draws near.
Next summer in London looks like being one of the busiest periods in recent memory as tens of thousands of global visitors converge on the capital to enjoy the spectacle of 26 Olympic sporting events. Car rental demand is almost certain to skyrocket from 27 July to 12 August, when the 2012 Olympics are held - and with the 2012 Paralympic Games following right afterwards between 29 August and 9 September, it is going to be tough to find a rental car at a reasonable price.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “Most Olympic spectators plan to tack a few extra days of travel onto their trip to take advantage of all the wonderful sights around London, and they’ll rent a car to do it. Travellers who wait until the last minute next summer to arrange car hire can expect slim pickings of vehicles as well as high prices.”
“This disappointing double whammy can be avoided simply by making a car hire reservation as far in advance as possible. The games may be 10 months away but it’s never too early to book a rental. You’ll enjoy a full selection of vehicles at the best rates possible, and be able to add on any extras you might need such as child safety seats or sat nav. If you know your plans, there’s no reason to wait.”
