Balearic Islands Car Hire Industry Fast Approaching Steady Recovery
Balearic Islands car hire industry is on track for steady recovery in 2010, as its travel market faces a surge of demand for value deals to the Mediterranean islands in the wake of the economic downturn.
Traditionally a time when holiday bookings hit a peak for the year, the car hire industry in Balearic Islands has been inundated by an overwhelming response for value-for-money deals to the islands of Majorca (Mallorca), Ibiza, and Minorca, part of its archipelago.
According to Marcos Torres, CEO of Ritmo Cars, "(its) car hire business is anticipating a solid rebound in 2010, as Balearic Islands weathered the worst of the recession last year, while maintaining its No 1 position for top performing destinations in Europe."
"Research has shown that despite the economy, holidaymakers place a high degree of importance on their holidays; instead of foregoing their vacation plans, travelers will seek to cut down on travel expenses," said Torres. "We fully recognize this importance, and that is why for 2010, we will help our customers get more bang for their buck."
Hiring a car in Majorca, Ibiza, or Minorca, provides tourists with flexibility and independence, allowing them to set their own travel pace, and saving them time and money compared with public transport.
More exclusive deals and incentives have also been specially designed to reward travelers who book their car rental in advance, or who arrange their traveling during off peak travel periods, ensuring greater cost savings for the budget conscious. Booking in advance will also allow vacationers to obtain the best deal and ascertain that they are not paying extra for any additional hidden costs or taxes at the airport.
Holidaymakers are also advised to carry out due research in advance, in order to benefit from a car rental that is the best fit for them. Some important considerations such as the guarantee of unlimited mileage, road assistance services in emergency situations, insurance cover for drivers and passengers, hidden taxes, child car seats, satellite GPD systems, and car roof racks etc, could affect their overall travel budget.
By booking a car hire in advance, customers can safely and clearly account for all these factors, affirm that their holiday needs in Majorca, Ibiza, or Minorca are being sufficiently met, and budgeted for accordingly, before stepping foot in Balearic Islands and ultimately, enjoy a worry-free vacation.
With the travel industry gearing up for 2010, there has never been a better time to book a car hirepackage for the Balearic Islands than now. Early bookers - especially those who manage to secure incentives on offer - will benefit not only from being offered the first choice of available cars in good condition, but also gaining the best prices.
"My advice would be to book early, as special deals are limited, and are very quickly snapped up by discerning customers. This is the most ideal opportunity for holidaymakers to get a bargain, without compromising on a luxury holiday to Balearic Islands." said Torres.
