With us Brits rushing to make the most of the added bank holiday this Easter why not take inspiration from the Royal Wedding and stay on home soil this April.
At Avis we know that Easter is always a very popular time of year to go away, but with the Royal Wedding happening this year, more people are planning to travel in the UK to rediscover the nation’s beauty spots and history rather than travelling abroad. The extra bank holidays mean that by booking three days off work, Britons can actually have a whole week’s break and at Avis we’re already seeing more demand as people rush to firm up their travel plans.
The UK has thousands of fantastic holiday destinations that are ideal for days out, weekends away and longer holidays, so we’re encouraging holidaymakers to make the most of their time off and explore more of the UK.
With Avis offering convenience and flexibility, car hire can be the most cost-effective way to explore the British Isles, both for those who don’t own a car, and for those looking to experience something a bit different. From hiring a Peugeot RCZ for the weekend, to choosing a larger people carrier for the whole family, Avis offers a wide selection of cars and services to make your time away as enjoyable as possible.
