Rhinocarhire.com Sees Increasing Demand For Hire Cars During The Olympic Games

The London Olympic Games this year will see the demand for car hire rise significantly

With just over six months to go until the opening of the 2012 Olympic Games in London, Rhinocarhire.com is already reporting strong demand for the period. The seventeen days of the games coincide with the school summer holidays when demand is usually already at its peak. The extra demand from the Olympics is expected to put huge pressure on top locations such as car hire Heathrow.

The majority of the events take place in the capital and tourism to London is expected to reach unseen highs during and after the games. The UK's and world's third busiest airport, Heathrow is expected to take up a lot of the strain whilst Gatwick and Stansted are preparing to support the capitals primary transport hub. Car hire Heathrow Airport is expected to see unprecedented demand this summer and with prices starting from just £13 per day in July 2012, Rhinocarhire.com recommend booking now to avoid escalating prices and even a shortage of rental cars.

Other Olympic events are taking place at venues across the UK and some may find it easier to collect a car at one location and return it at another, a service offered by Rhinocarhire.com. Weymouth is hosting the sailing events whilst Manchester’s Old Trafford football stadium hosts men’s and women’s football. Car hire is available close to both locations including Manchester and Manchester Airport meaning that during your Olympic stay, you’ll never be far from your own means of transport.

Phil Partridge, Marketing Manager at Rhino adds, “Many people coming to watch the Olympics are combining the Games with a tour of Britain. For some arriving from destinations further away, it’s the trip of a lifetime and they’ll want to make the most of it. There’s no better or more convenient way of getting around than with your own hire car, something the increased demand is already telling us. We’ve made sure extra cars are available but to be sure you get the vehicle you want, we’re recommending that people go online and book their hire car early.
