Escape to Europe this Holiday Season with Nationwide Hire

Summer holiday season is on the horizon, with Project Britain reporting that two thirds of Brits jet off during July and August.  As the nation chases the sun to popular European destinations, Nationwide Hire is gearing up for its busiest period of the year. With FREE unlimited mileage and the option of European cover across the entire continent, the hire group is the ideal ticket to holiday freedom this summer.

Anita Teague, Marketing Manager, said, “Europe is an incredible place to spend the summer and Brits enjoy the luxury of having a myriad of incredible destinations right on their doorstep. From Spain and France to Germany and Belgium, our European hire car service gives Brits the chance to explore at their own pace and discover their very own slice of Europe.”

With an abundance of sun, gorgeous beaches, mouth-watering food and beautiful scenery, Spain has long been the UK’s favourite summer holiday destination. The latest research from the ONS Travel Trends report revealed that the country attracted 11.7 million British tourists in 2013, representing a 5.8% increase on the previous year’s figures. While the lively Spanish culture may seem worlds away from the UK, the country is easily accessible by car and makes for the perfect summer road trip. From cruising the coastline of Basque Country, soaking up the natural beauty of Sierra Nevada National Park and zipping around sunny Andalucía, a hire car is the ideal way to explore all of Spain’s unique regions.

With wonderfully warm weather, divine cuisine and some of the most beautiful countryside on the planet, France is a mecca for British holidaymakers. Whether sun seekers take the Eurotunnel or cruise across on the ferry, France is an easy and accessible summer holiday destination for families, couples and groups of friends alike! 

To the east, Germany makes for a fantastic summer holiday destination. While the buzz of big cities such as Berlin, Munich and Frankfurt all have their allure, a hire car gives travellers the freedom to get out and enjoy a taste of rural Germany. Peppered with dense forests, flowing rivers and towering mountain ranges, swapping the fast pace of the autobahn for the leisurely pace of country roads is the perfect way to relax and unwind.    

Whether holidaymakers are looking to hire a compact and economical Fiat 500, a family friendly ford Focus Mid-Size Estate, a luxurious Mercedes E Class or an ultra-tough, all terrain Range Rover 4x4, Nationwide Hire has a solution.  

A spokesperson said, “We’re committed to offering our customers the best choice and value for money on the market. We have a huge range of summer holiday hire cars to choose from, whether drivers are heading off on a romantic getaway for two or an action packed family holiday.”
