UK tourists choosing to head for sunshine rather than ski slopes during this February's school holidays

2 FEBRUARY 2012 –, a leading comparator of car hire deals from dozens of the sector's leading name suppliers, has seen a rise in rental bookings for sunny destinations this coming half term holiday.

The website reports that Brits have been booking rental deals in locations such as Portugal, Spain, Greece and Miami this half term, rather than last year's more popular destinations such as the UK and Switzerland.

Andy Hemmington, spokesperson for, commented: “It's been a long and cold winter in the UK and the continuing snow is seeing people head away for some sunshine for the half term break. Comparing rental deals online is a great way to get good value as budgets remain tight."

“Another way to maximise a budget is to think about booking a rental deal which is collectable in a downtown office location rather than on landing at the airport.”

UK tourists can log on to ahead of the half term break and source themselves rental deals starting as low as £3 a day. Deals to be had include one week’s car hire from Malaga Airport from £3* per day, from £4* per day at Faro, from £9* per day in Crete, and from £14* per day at Miami Airport. is one of the leading car hire comparison websites in the UK, allowing users to compare car hire prices for over 40 suppliers in 15,000 locations worldwide including Spain, Portugal and Greece, with pick up locations for car hire Malaga deals and Car hire Murcia bookings.
