Most Popular Destinations for October Half Term Holidays Revealed

October 19, 2012

LONDON, October 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

Leading car hire website announces the most popular holiday spots for the
October half term break, when Brits jet off for their last chance of European summer sun

Leading car hire website, 121carhire.com, has revealed its top ten European car hire
destinations for the month of October leading up to the last half term holidays before
Christmas. While the Faro region of Portugal has taken the official top spot, Spain has
dominated the board with 50% of the top ten located in the country.

With temperatures in popular tourists spots such as Spain, Portugal and Greece still
standing comfortably at around 20 degrees during the day, families often make a last dash
for a sunshine break in the half term October holiday week before the temperatures cool
down in November.

121carhire.co.uk, a leading car hire specialist which supplies vehicles in over 15,000
locations across 115 countries, released its top 10 European destinations based on car
hire rental figures for September-October 2012. The most popular pick up point was
revealed as Faro in Southern Portugal, however Spain seemed the most popular overall.
Malaga, Alicante, Murcia, Barcelona and Palma de Mallorca respectively, all appeared in
the top 10 alongside Lisbon, Paphos and Larnaca (Cyrpus).

Although nine out of the top ten locations were traditional summer sun holidays, in at
number four was Geneva in Switzerland, which at this time of year is between its summer
season and ski season for travellers, making it quite a surprising entry.

Michael Bond of 121carhire.com said: “Despite summer coming to an end, car hire in
Europe is still popular amongst Brits, particularly in mainland Spain. It seems
holidaymakers are keen to catch the last bit of sun during half term and clearly these are
some of the best locations to do that in.”
