Hiring a car on holiday still seen as getting more value for money with RitmoCars customers

The recession has brought change to the lifestyles of many. However, travelling is a pastime seemingly sustainable, despite cuts to purse strings, and last year illustrated a turn to car hire as a way of seeing exotic destinations at a fair price.

The Mediterranean islands in particular, are a popular location. Its islands have a long tradition of offering amenable deals, and car hire companies, perfect for travelling through the Mediterranean’s various corners and coves, appear to be thriving.

No island is more exotic and appealing than Ibiza, and it is an island that has far more to it than clubs and glamorous all-night and all-day parties. There are spots to this location that are notably worth discovering with car hire in Ibiza. Alongside Ibiza Town is San Jose, an artistic side to the buzzing island. A car allows travellers to tailor their holiday to the sites and trips that suit them.

Booking early ensures the cheaper and better-valued deals. For travellers, research before booking ensures there are no nasty or expensive surprises at the other end. Also to be considered are the mechanics of your booking: with time on your side check insurance coverage, any hidden taxes and GPD systems; highly useful if ever lost abroad.

RitmoCars, is a specialist car hire company who provide car hire for top European destinations, including the Balearic Islands. With an online booking form and a varied fleet of car models, RitmoCars provide car hire in Ibiza and beyond to keep you free of public transport stress.

Holidays Tops The List of Financial Priorities

“It’s my life and I’m going to live it whilst I can”. It seems that despite the rising cost of living and the rise in VAT, in the current financial climate, we all place great importance and are willing to spend on our holidays.

OUR SURVEY

Journeys of Distinction conducted a survey at the end of 2010 to find out how the current social and economic climate has affected our attitude to travel. We asked 1000 people some very detailed questions. Unsurprisingly, everyone thought holidays were important. 90% of respondents in our survey ideally wanted several holidays and breaks per year. And 60% of respondents would rather spend money on a holiday than a new car or home improvements.

MIND THE GAP

Our survey revealed that it was those in the 40-50 age group that feel they work the hardest and that their money is for spending on well-earned holidays. They are less concerned about investments and more concerned about their health and wellbeing. It is the 60+ generation, however that are taking the most holidays, with some taking up to 7 holidays per year. They are dipping into their retirement funds and are taking time out to see the world. It is this generation who have supported their children through education and on to the property ladder. They now want to kick back, enjoy life and spend money on enjoying themselves. It is their turn to travel, to explore and take their own gap year.

NO HIDDEN COSTS

We weren’t surprised to find that the economic climate has changed peoples attitudes to money. Clients want to know the true cost of products and services and know what they are really spending, with no loopholes. This has lead to an increase in popularity inluxury escorted tours, where the cost of most excursions and trips is included.

Journeys of Distinction offer organised escorted tours around the world. New Zealand escorted tours, South Africa escorted toursSouth America escorted tours, India, China and Japan are just some of the countries we visit. Detailed planning and attention to detail are part of the package and our customers get exactly what they are looking for.
