eRentals.co.uk has seen the rise in advance bookings as being contrary to the usual traveller habit of waiting until much nearer to Christmas before making a car hire reservation.
This year's most popular places for picking up a rental car are Geneva, Heathrow Airport, Lisbon, Faro and Manchester Airport. Many travellers take the opportunity to head away and visit family and friends over the Christmas and New Year period.
Briony Fairbairn, spokesperson for eRentals.co.uk, said: “Each festive season there is usually a late rush of car hire bookings, even in the few days before Christmas. This year though there seem to be many more people booking ahead to be sure they get themselves the car they need for their trip."
“Holiday times tend to see higher demand for particular cars like people carriers or 4x4s as well as things like snow chains and child seats - booking in advance is the way to get these cars and items at value for money prices. We've seen many more people book ahead this year and we expect them to have a more enjoyable trip with a smoother car hire experience.”
