LONDON, September 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Holidaymakers book October half term breaks to escape severe weather warnings in the UK and take advantage of great deals
October half term bookings have seen a sharp increase due to the worst September storms for more than 30 years, according to the car hire comparison site http://www.comparecarhire.co.uk/
The company says that current bad weather in the UK has resulted in an increase in demand for locations such as Spain, Turkey and Portugal as families look to escape the weather in the UK. According to the comparison site, there are some great deals available on flights and accommodation as well as car hire even though there is high demand over half term week.
Andy Hemmington of Comparecarhire.co.uk, said: "For some families the September storms have dampened spirits and driven Brits to book a break in the sun for half term. The weather is still warm in Europe's most popular holiday destinations in October, particularly when compared with the weather in the UK, so it still remains a busy period for the travel industry. However, this doesn't mean prices need to be high - there are some great deals out there to be had by holidaymakers."
A week's half term car hire from both Malaga or Faro Airport starts from just £6* per day and exploring the Spanish island of Majorca by car starts from £9* per day, picking up a vehicle from Palma de Mallorca airport.
