Ibiza is Perfect Winter Sun Family Destination, say Ritmo Cars

Ibiza may be dominated by party animals from May to September, but once the clubbers leave and the prices fall it evolves into the perfect winter-sun holiday destination for families, say Ritmo Cars.

Winter sun holidays are up this year after a rain-soaked summer and freezing winter. Ibiza and Spain in general are among the most popular destinations thanks to low prices and almost perpetual sunshine. According to the Post Office’s Holiday Costs Barometer 2012, Spain is the fourth cheapest short to mid-haul destination. Along with being the fourth best-priced region for a bundle of eight holiday necessities such as dinner for two, refreshments and postcards, it also offers some of the cheapest car hire rates in Europe.

Hiring a car in Ibiza is definitely worthwhile. Having access to four wheels means families can explore all regions of the island from the arid interior to the lush almost tropical north and historic Ibiza Town in the east. A great base during the winter months is San Antonio thanks to its plethora of resort hotels catering to the needs of families with children of all ages. However, the north and southern tip offer outstanding snorkelling, sea kayaking and sailing and the interior is a great place to hike and cycle.

Ibiza Town, just 15km from San Antonio, boasts a UNESCO World Heritage old town. Rising from the azure ocean is a network of narrow alleys, winding serpentine up to a hilltop fort and church. Steeped in history, this picture-perfect spot is great for a candle lit dinner or afternoon exploration.

Nothing in Ibiza is far away, however the public transport network is rather poor. A car makes the 35km journey from San Antonio to Portinax in the north or the 15km ride to Vista Alegre in the south a complete breeze.

You’ll find cheap car hire in Ibiza available through Ritmo Cars. It specialises in car hire in the Balearics and thus has some of the most competitive prices and best quality cars. It caters well to adventure-seeking families with its range of 4×4 vehicles and saloon cars and it has a depot at Ibiza airport enabling families to start exploring as soon as they get through arrivals.

British holidaymakers are urged to book car hire early for this summer due to an expected shortage of vehicles in key locations across Spain this summer.

‘Road Sense’ Motoring Safety Campaign Introduced by Carrentals.co.uk and Brake

Carrentals.co.uk, the leading car hire comparison website which helps people book cheap hire from up to 50 top providers, announces its sixth ever ‘Road Sense’ campaign. The campaign, in partnership with road safety charity Brake, seeks to raise awareness of motoring safety issues among drivers of all ages.

The annual Road Sense campaign focuses on a key element of motoring, with this year seeing the initiative being consistent checks on tyres, brakes and engine as the winter weather sets in. Carrentals.co.uk and Brake are calling on motorists to get these vital checks carried out no matter what the impact on their household budget.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “We are calling on drivers around the UK to be aware of the need for getting brakes and tyres checked regularly, particularly as the UK’s roads turn icier. This is the way to reduce the number of avoidable accidents on Britain’s motorways and roads throughout the winter.”

Brake is the UK’s leading road safety charity and has said recently that more UK youngsters die in car crashes today than die by any other means. Many accidents are caused by driving too fast and reckless overtaking, with one out of every four fatal accidents on UK roads involving someone aged below the age of 25.

“We are proud to work with organisations like Brake on our Road Sense campaigns,” Gareth continued. “Motorists would be wise to pay attention to the words of Brake since they really know their subject. We all need to pull together to improve the situation and lower the amount of serious accidents.”

Katie Shephard, director at Brake, says: “We enjoy working with companies like Carrentals.co.uk who seek to push the road safety agenda through initiatives Road Sense. Throughout this year’s Road Safety Week we at Brake want young people to become increasingly aware of the importance of driving sensibly and to ‘have a heart at the wheel’.”

The Carrentals.co.uk Road Sense site offers road safety advice as well as new offers, including discounts on winter clothing and reflective gear for children and adults from Outdoor Look and BrightKidz.

Carrentals.co.uk is the leading car hire comparison site comparing prices in over 15,000 locations worldwide including France, Spain and car hire in Ireland, with pick up locations including car hire in Dublin, Cork and Shannon.
