LONDON, August 18, 2011 -

Travellers taking a break over the last Bank Holiday weekend of the year can still get car hire for £10 a day according to the UK’s largest comparison site

The company says that despite demand being up year on year, rental companies are keeping their prices down, with popular destinations such as Malaga and Alicante still offering rentals from around £30 for a three day break.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of, says: “While the August Bank Holiday is still one of the most popular weekends to get away, rental companies have kept their prices down this year, making it more affordable to hire a car and explore somewhere new on a late summer break.

“There is a choice of vehicles at many of the key locations, such as Spain, France and Portugal, but our advice is still to book rental as early as possible to secure the right car for your requirements, particularly where you need a people carrier or 4×4, or specific items such as baby seats.”

The award winning compares deals from companies including Alamo, Auto Europe, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt, and has booked over 650,000 rentals to date.  Offering car hire in Spain and car hire in Menorca, for more information visit
