Heavy early snow prompts price comparator to advise advance booking to get prices from £15* per day
Online PR News – 19-November-2009 – – 9 November 2009 – An early start to the ski season prompted by heavy early snow in the Alps has meant that ski fans are heading for the slopes sooner than usual in the year. As a result leading car hire price comparator Carrentals.co.uk is recommending early booking of car hire to get hold of the widest choice of car availability and best prices.
With lots of favourite ski destinations in popular countries like Switzerland, France and Italy choosing to open their slopes earlier this year to profit from the early heavy snow, lots of ski enthusiasts are taking more than one trip to the slopes this year.
Gareth Robinson, managing director of http://wwwCarrentals.co.uk, comments, “The heavy snow this early in the year has led people to look to go skiing sooner than usual, and as such demand for rental cars is up unseasonably high. So with that in mind we’re advising early booking to get the right deals.”
With bargain airlines offering cheap flights to popular ski resorts, many ski fans are this year taking multiple trips to the slopes. The pistes in Austria have opened already and this means that there is an increased demand for rental cars in popular resorts.
Gareth Robinson went on, “With air fares to favourite ski resorts down thanks to the budget airlines, many people are heading for the slopes earlier than ever. As such we strongly recommend advance booking of car hire to get hold of the right cars at the right prices and to also get hold of in-demand items such as snow chains and child seats.”
