Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of, comments: “Europe’s car hire companies have enjoyed a bumper year and they’re pushing their numbers to record levels by keeping rates low in a bid to encourage even more Brits to rent a car during the last Bank Holiday of 2011. When you can have your own car for just £10 a day, the incentive to rent on a weekend away is a huge one.”

It is now easier than ever to end the 2011 summer travel season with a fun weekend away with three day car hire packages available for just £30 total. Whether heading for the beach in Portugal, the mountains of Germany or France’s wine country, a rental car allows travellers to get much more from their long weekend.

Gareth Robinson continues: “You can bet that the usual hot spots like the Costa del Sol and the Alps will be busy as August draws to a close. If planning a car hire in Menorca booking or a trip to any other top getaway spot, we do recommend that you make your reservation early - especially if you have any special needs like a certain kind of vehicle or add-ons such as child safety seats.”, the leader in online car hire price comparison, has processed more than 650,000 car hire bookings to date.
