7 MARCH 2012 – British holidaymakers are urged to book car hire early for this summer due to an expected shortage of vehicles in key locations across Spain this summer.

The warning comes from leading car hire comparison website, which says that the possible closure of a top company will have a negative impact on car availability in Spain for the summer. This is likely to result in increased prices and a lack of availability over the peak summer months.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of, says: The key to getting choice and availability - plus good value - is to book your rental well in advance of travelling.

We are in a strong position in that we compare up to 50 rental companies on our site, meaning that if one supplier doesn't have availability the chances are that one of our smaller suppliers will. We cannot stress enough the importance of booking early if you are looking to rent a car for a trip to Spain this coming summer.
