Greece Car Hire To Play A Part in Hopes For Increased Tourism in 2012
The problems besetting the Euro, ignited partly by the Greek budget deficit, has seen it fall against major currencies such as the dollar, the rouble and the pound, making holidays to Greece and the Greek Islands up to 20% cheaper than 2011 for tourists from the UK, Russia and the USA. Most of the world’s economies are suffering and families, who are desperate to get away but want value for money, are taking a long look at Greece.
Already Rhinocarhire.com is seeing increased bookings for car hire in Greece and in particular car hire Athens indicating that the hoped for rise in tourists may come to fruition. Rhino is keen to point out that Greece isn’t just about the mainland and travellers are taking advantage of the lower prices to visit many of the islands that are accessible from Athens including Andros, Mykonos, Paros and Naxos, all of which have the availability of car hire through Rhinocarhire.com.
Whilst the mainland has more than its fair share of history and archaeology, especially in and around Athens with its iconic Acropolis and the Parthenon, the islands tempt tourists with beautiful beaches and stunning scenery. Car hire Corfu is proving a popular choice for holiday makers in 2012 with bookings from the Airport proving the most popular on the Island.
Marketing manager, Phil Partridge comments, "Greece is in real trouble and to help escape the problem, the country is trying to attract foreign earnings through tourism. We have already launched a marketing campaign for Greece and its islands and are seeing higher than usual early bookings indicating that the campaign is succeeding."
Car rental rates are also very low with prices starting from £11 in Athens, further encouraging travellers, especially families where budgets are tight, to choose Greece and its islands this summer.
*prices based on 7 days rental of mini class vehicle during February 2012 – prices correct at time of going to press and subject to availability.
