Sports fans wanting to get around the country should compare deals and book in advance says online comparator

30 September 2011 – With the London 2012 Olympic Games kicking off in a little under 10 months' time, online car hire comparator Carrentals.co.uk is advising drivers to book their rentals for the Games as soon as possible.

The London Games will next summer be followed by the 2012 Paralympic Games and both events are expected to attract tens of thousands of sports fans to the games' many various locations around the UK. However Carrentals.co.uk, the website which sources cheap hire deals from over 50 leading providers, is warning people to book rental cars well in advance for getting around to the many Olympic sites.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “Events of the scale of the Olympic Games always seem to cause a spike in demand for car hire, so we want to give people the benefit of our experience. Prices as well as availability will be impacted around the London 2012 Games next summer."

“So people who want to head off to Wales or the north of England to see specific London 2012 Olympics events need to plan ahead and book their rental car well in advance. By doing this people can be sure they're giving themselves the best chance possible of getting a value for money deal plus also extra things such as child seats or satnavs.”
