Holidaymakers are Regaining Control with Cost Cutting Car Hire, say Auto Europe

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Sept. 21, 2010) - Auto Europe, the UK's expert car hire company, have noted an increase in car hire bookings this autumn, particularly throughout numerous European islands.

As the kids have all gone back to school and the summer holidays are officially over now, travel operators are in their traditional way bringing out a range of amazing offers. However, because of the setbacks this year due to airport and airline strikes as well as the indomitable volcanic ash, most of the offers available are even better than usual.

Holidays to islands such as Mallorca, Sardinia and Madeira are incredibly popular right now. Easy to organise trips to island getaways are the most popular choice for holidaymakers who are looking for some sun and relaxation at the end of the year and these locations still have plenty to offer during the later months.

Auto Europe who provide car hire services right around the world say they have been surprised by a boost to the usual number of bookings on these islands and think that the reason more people are booking car hire Mallorca wide, for example, could be because more people are becoming more adventurous as well as economical.

A spokesperson for the company, commented: 'People are becoming savvier when they go away these days. For years they felt reliant upon tour operators to provide everything for them, whereas people are more likely now to book directly through the hotel of their choice and buy their flights separately; or go self catering; or hire a car and discover the island for themselves rather than paying over the odds for organised trips.'

It is true that driving abroad has increased in popularity over the last decade as we have increased in confidence as a nation with holidaying more frequently than our parents did at the same age and venturing beyond that which a package holiday provides. It can be a hugely rewarding experience driving around a foreign town viewing stunning scenery on your clock.

Auto Europe also provide car hire Sardinia wide as well as car hire Madeira based, so if you're planning to grab some winter sun in either of these stunning locations, visit their website www.auto-europe.co.uk and get a great deal for your holiday.
