Online specialist tells ski fans to book their rental cars well in advance as resorts experience heavy snows
The ski resorts throughout Europe are now experiencing heavy snow, leading car hire website eRentals.co.uk to advise advance rental car booking to avoid missing out.
The traditionally popular ski destinations in France, Italy and Austria are seeing the greatest demand for rental vehicles, but eRentals.co.uk also reports bookings up 50% on last year in Bulgaria. Resorts like Bansko appear more popular with skiers working to tighter budgets this year.
Briony Fairbairn, spokesperson for eRentals.co.uk, comments: “The resorts around Europe are now seeing great snowfall, and this has prompted a big jump in car hire demand. The usual suspects like France, Italy and Austria are as popular as ever but Bulgaria seems to be the destination of choice for skiers wanting to get more for their money this ski season.”
Through a combination of the many budget airlines providing cheap flights to ski resorts this year and also cheap deals to rent a car while there, more and more Brits are heading to newer, more affordable ski resorts rather than cancel their annual visit to the pistes. eRentals.co.uk reports car hire from Sofia Airport in Bulgaria starts at just £6 per day* right now.
Briony Fairbairn continues: “People heading for a ski trip this season should get their rental car reservation in as soon as possible – this is the way to be sure of getting the car that you want plus also any added extras like snow chains or icy weather tyres.”
Current ski deals include rental from £6* per day at Sofia Airport; from £17* per day at Milan Malpensa Airport; from £27* per day at Salzburg Airport and from £23* per day at Geneva Airport.
