Alongside the celebrity wish list, the survey also uncovered what Brits love the most about travelling by car on vacation. Most (47%) are enamoured by the surroundings and sightseeing, while 32% simply enjoy the journey itself, and 29% appreciate the flexibility and freedom in their plans that car travel gives them.
“At Budget UK we always put our customers first. Undertaking a survey of this size really helps us to identify how we can make travel experiences more enjoyable and maximise the time spent on a well-deserved vacation. The summer is a peak time for car rentals. Whilst we can’t promise that Ed Sheeran will be waiting for customers when they collect their keys, we do offer a number of tools and services to help get people from point A to B as quickly and conveniently as possible,” said Nina Bell, Managing Director of Avis Budget Group for the UK and Scandinavia, and Zipcar UK.
“With passengers saying they most enjoy the freedom of the open road we provide a wide range of vehicles in our fleet to help make the journey more comfortable for long drives. We also offer a number of extras available upon booking to cater for all journey types, including Satellite Navigation (Sat-Nav), in-car Wi-Fi, as well as roof and surf racks for more adventure travellers.”
