With the summer upon us, now is the time to start booking your holidays if you haven't already. Booking your car hire early on will ensure both the lowest prices and the availability of your vehicle of choice. During high season it is not uncommon for demand to be higher than supply capacity, which is why it's of the utmost importance to book early. So that we can offer you the best value for your money this summer, Auto Europe provides a number of special deals
, such as discounts, free upgrades, free additional drivers, or even free GPS. If you're considering a staycation this year, so you can stay closer to all the events surrounding the Olympics, why not take a few days to enjoy the sun on the English coast? If you're not planning to go abroad but you would still like to avoid the worst of the crowds drawn to The Games, studies show that Wales and The Highlands are among some of the most popular spots in the UK to escape the Olympics. With the Pound higher than the Euro, now is a particularly good time to travel to Europe. The Mediterranean region is a particular favourite this time of year, and with good reason: east or west, you will find great food, welcoming people, and a stunning shoreline dotted with some of the best beaches in the continent. We recommend picking up a car hire in Malaga
for a summer caliente in the Costa del Sol, one of the most sought-after destinations in Spain. If you would rather visit their western cousins instead, the Algarve also provides a never-ending supply of amazing white sand beaches bathed by the warm blue waters of the Atlantic, and often at more accommodating prices. If you want to take your summer break one step further, why not trade one side of the Atlantic for the other and fly to the USA for a fun-packed holiday. Orlando is the perfect playground for a family holiday, home to some of the best theme parks on the planet. And if you're considering a road trip in the US, take a look at our handy Gold Rate package, which offers a free tank of fuel plus a free additional driver. Whichever country you pick and whichever continent you choose, Auto Europe has you covered with the best products at the most competitive rates.
