LONDON, August 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Leading car hire comparison site Carrentals.co.uk warns holidaymakers heading for Spain to book their vehicles before September, when VAT will rise by 3% across the country
Holidaymakers travelling to Spain for the last remaining weeks of summer are being advised to book their car hire before the end of August in order to save money, as VAT in Spain will rise by 3% from the 1st September 2012.
Although the increase is set at 3% it is thought many companies will take this as an opportunity to also round prices up. Fortunately, for visitors wanting to explore the country by car, if they book car hire before 1st September, regardless of arriving after this date, they will avoid paying the increase.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk which compares prices from up to 50 different rental companies, says: "Unfortunately for people travelling to Spain in September everything will cost that little bit more. Booking as much as possible in advance before the increase comes into effect means holidaymakers can still grab a bargain, and enjoy all the usual services, such as car hire, without spending over the odds."
It's not only car hire costs that will be affected and consumers are urged to think about what they can book before the increase date. This includes everything from arranging their accommodation, to pre-booking any trips, excursions and airport transfers.
Preparing ahead of 1st September means holidaymakers could save significant amounts and enjoy the same standard of holiday they would have done before the increase.
