London, UK, 14 November 2012: Brits are looking ahead and planning how to make the most of the Christmas period, according to car hire comparison site, which has seen a recent surge in car hire bookings for December.

Popular destinations for December include London, Milan and Geneva. For those people looking for some added inspiration, has put together five top Christmas-themed driving ideas that will appeal to present shoppers right through to snow-avoiding sun worshippers:

1) Christmas in Lapland
Cut costs and give the kids a magical holiday with a fly-drive break to Lapland. Fly into Finland and enjoy the spectacular scenery on your drive to meet Santa face-to-face.

2) Christmas market tour
Stuttgart, Dusseldorf and Freiburg are just some of the many beautiful Christmas markets in Germany this December. Spend a few days taking in the sights and breathe in the delights of candied fruits and roasted chestnuts wafting around the wooden market stalls.

3) Festive shopping bonanza
Make sure you have plenty of room for all those extra gifts when you’re driving home for Christmas. If your hatchback won’t cut it, then hire an estate for as little as £26 per day to make sure you can fit them all in.

4) Gift idea
Stuck for a present? Treat your friends or loved ones to the ultimate driving experience by hiring them a sports car for an extravagant weekend away.

5) For those who REALLY hate the cold…
Escape the cold snaps and wintery gales by getting away from it all on a sunny driving holiday in mountainous Tenerife. With temperatures reaching 22c° in December, the UK already looks a long way away…
