London, United Kingdom, August 13, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- The Met Office’s forecast revision, published after the heavy rain and almost wintry spells experienced across the UK during July, dashed any remaining hopes of a heat-wave at home this August. The shift in consumer demand for car hire suggests many people are now shelving stay-cation plans to try and enjoy some sunshine in Europe.
According to Auto Europe’s Commercial Director for the UK and Ireland, Peter McAree, holidaymakers looking to scoop up late travel bargains could be in luck if they’re able to wait until September:
“Families restricted to school holidays will still find good deals for car hire, as long as they can be flexible on destination,” explains McAree. “But from the 7th September when the new term starts, prices and availability for all countries will be greatly improved. With plenty of package deals on offer, this really is the best time to take a break abroad if you’re able to.”
Auto Europe’s top recommendations for September holidays are USA, Italy, Portugal and France.
“These destinations are perfect for travellers who want to avoid the crowds with an off-peak trip,” continues McAree. “Temperatures are still pleasant, but much more suitable for sightseers or people with very young children.”
Auto Europe guarantees that any payment received will be returned in full if a change or cancellation is made up to 48 hours before the time of collection. This policy is designed to help Auto Europe customers’ book with confidence that they will not lose out if they need to change their travel plans for any reason.
