3rd of April

This may come as a surprise, but a research performed by has shown that car rental prices  for key holiday periods in 2012 are now 45% cheaper than they were a couple of years ago.

The research takes into account 6 cities that are popular holiday destinations. These cities are Palma, Faro, Malaga, Alicante, Tenerife, and Murcia.

Travellers in Spain, who book through, will find that car rental prices during this popular holiday week are 34% cheaper.  For example, in Malaga an eight-day rental of a mini-economy car costs only £63.89. This is about 44% cheaper than the prices offered for the same period in 2010. In Alicante, it only costs £82.59 to rent a medium sized family car. This is 45% lower than what it would cost to rent the same car in 2010.

Easter is also another holiday period where car rental prices also go way down. In Palma, car rental prices are around 33% cheaper than what they were two years ago. Car rental prices for a large family car in Tenerife are only £127.35. Two years ago it would cost £211.62 to rent the same type of vehicle.
