Delays in European Car Manufacturing Mean Car Hire Should be Booked Early this Summer to Avoid Disappointment, Say Auto Europe

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - July 1, 2011) - As the effect of Japan's Tsunami continues, car rental providers in Europe may find their fleets shortened this summer due to many European car manufacturers relying on important parts and technology from Japan. This knock-on effect means that Auto Europe, worldwide car hire providers, are urging travellers to book their car hire early to avoid any disappointment.

Summer is the most popular time for car hire in Europe, with many people jetting off to tourist destinations there is a high demand in popular cities, from car hire in Alicante to Malaga based. However, as car manufacturers in Europe require vital car parts from Japan, it appears that there is a delay in the production of some cars in Europe meaning there may be a shortage of hire cars this summer - a time when car hire demand is already at its highest.

Demand for car hire throughout Europe may outweigh the current supply but booking early means you won't risk missing out on a hire car. Car hire specialists Auto Europe advise that if a customer knows their travel plans in advance they can book early whilst taking advantage of the fantastic current costs available.

A spokesperson for Auto Europe said: "The current situation is unfortunate as it means car hire fleets may not be at their largest during the summer months. That is why we are advising all travellers to book as soon as possible to ensure that they have car hire booked at the great low prices currently on offer to avoid disappointment over the summer."

Auto Europe are worldwide car hire specialists with over 8,000 car hire destinations from car in hire Lisbon wide to Rome based. As Auto Europe expect some car rental companies may raise their prices when demand outweighs car hire supply, it is recommended to book now in order to save the most money.

Known for their great value-for-money and strong customer service, Auto Europe's fleet consists of beautiful cars including popular models from Mercedes, Fiat and Peugeot. To book car hire this summer and view Auto Europe's selection of fantastic prices, please visit
