The strengthening pound is bringing benifits to UK holiday makers as car hire rentals both in the US and Europe are falling in cost in line with the rise in the pound.
Travellers who have yet to book their car hire this summer will find that prices, where avaliability remains high, have fallen back as the pound has moved forward. Cars rented in this country but hired abroad tend to be priced in the local currency but this is then converted to pounds at the time payment is made.
Those looking to book are urged to check prices now as in some destinations it is now difficult to find avaliability for some class of cars, but this recent surge in the pound strength is certainly compensating at least partially for the general rise in car hire costs.
