Those who make early bookings benefit from lower prices

The trend towards early booking is also reflected in the car rental sector. Analysis of car rental bookings for summer 2024 shows a 20% increase in bookings in January for the five major holiday destinations: Spain, Italy, Greece, Italy, Portugal and Germany. Spain and Italy in particular are showing strong growth.

A clear trend is also emerging in terms of vehicles. At present, customers are mainly booking in the compact (SUV) or economy category. “Holidaymakers appreciate a spacious vehicle when travelling and car manufacturers are reducing production of smaller cars. As a result, the supply of the smaller vehicle category is also decreasing and prices will increase,” says Erik Weenink.
