Distance Calculator Looks to Predict the Future

Distance Calculator a UK based travel site is aiming to predict the most requested routes in the UK and USA for September 2011. Using historical data from site visitors they aim to predict where most people are seeking to go, and give a glimpse into what look to be some interesting twists and turns for their visitors in the future.

Rob Watts the site’s administrator said “We are always looking to improve things and add value – By looking at raw data, we thought it would be good to look at the numbers to see what if any correlations existed, for example we looked at visits for September to October 2010 and found that the top requested page for UK visitors was the Manchester to Leeds page and for USA visitors we found it to be the Sioux Falls to Branson Missouri

Data from August 2011 was also compared with August 2010. Consistent patterns of site usage were sought; aspects like the most requested pages, similar queries and the like. Site visits were segmented into UK and US visitors overlain against what people searched for and viewed. Adjusting for general site popularity it was found that people from the US were generally looking for the same places in volume YOY. Miami, New York, Pittsburgh all featured highly in similar percentages. For the UK places requested were London, Manchester, Leeds, Dover, Paris and Calais.

“We’d expect to see the most populated places feature high, it’s no surprise there, neither is the fact that popular routes and distances featured high either. Some are plain to see, routes like London to Dover for instance, or Manchester to Leeds are all frequently travelled routes by people in numbers. We think there’s a story in the data and are looking to see how we can cross reference user visits with other data sources out there in the public domain, Twitter and Facebook for instance, events that kind of thing, through looking at these patterns we can improve the way we do things. Our aim is to pull in real time data signals that supplement the user experience. Through looking at the past we can hopefully get a better handle on what might happen in the future”.

Tourists and travellers deserve better information and help reports online car hire comparator

A new threat to the travel industry this year in the form of another cloud of volcanic ash moving south has lead online car hire comparator Carrentals.co.uk to ask the travel sector to up its game. In 2010 many people were let down by poor information flow and communications from travel companies – something Carrentals.co.uk wants suppliers to address this time around.

Gareth Robinson, Carrentals.co.uk Managing Director, comments: “Last year during the volcanic ash crisis we feel that travel industry companies let themselves down somewhat – many people were poorly informed about changes and cancellations to their trips. Airlines in particular but also hotels, insurance providers, car hire companies and more were guilty of not really seeming to understand their own processes and cancellation policies for example.”

Gareth Robinson went on, “We hope that this time around the companies will have learned lessons from last year and will implement much clearer channels of communication. Travellers and tourists deserve better service than they received in 2010’s emergency and we expect providers to be better prepared for answering people’s questions and concerns about the volcanic ash cloud this time.”

The travel sector was recently criticised for its handling of the 2010 volcanic ash cloud emergency by consumer journal Which? The magazine’s report focused on the numbers of people around Europe still waiting to receive refunds or compensation for cancellations during last year’s crisis.

In order to keep travellers informed of any changes to their travel and hire car arrangements, Carrentals.co.uk wants people who have booked rental cars through their site to get in touch via the Carrentals.co.uk help section.

Leading car hire comparator in the UK shows what not to do when hiring a car

With many people thinking about jetting off on holiday this year, there are some common problems that renters fall foul of and Carrentals.co.uk, the leading comparator in the UK, has devised solutions on how to deal with those problems.

Carrentals.co.uk’s Gareth Robinson, the Managing Director, said: “We are know that hiring a car adds to the convenience of a holiday and they add a sense of freedom too, but many people fall into the trap of the mishaps of renting a car, such as not understanding the road rules of a different country or the insurance policies you need.

“Avoiding these mishaps can help the holiday run smoother and in turn, it helps people to have a more enjoyable trip.”

Here are Carrentals.co.uk Top Ten tips for renting a car

1. Not checking the car before leaving – It is the renter’s responsibility to check for any damage before leaving the car hire compound. If there is any damage not recorded upon your return, you will be charged for it, even if you didn’t do it.

2. Pick up insurance policy – At the pick up point, you will be offered insurance and it is important to make sure you’re not double covered for any items, if you have already sorted out your insurance.

3. Take out an insurance policy beforehand – Ensure you buy car hire insurance before you leave as on the day you can be charged more than you should be. Total Damage Excess Waiver is a good way to ensure you don’t have to pay for tyres, wheels, excesses, windscreen, roof or the underside of the car damage.

4. Cheaper the better? – In most cases choosing the cheapest car is not always the best. If you stretch that little bit further your trip can be more comfortable and better value for money by hiring a larger car, such as an MPV for carrying around five or more people.

5. Booking a hire car late – It’s more likely that a late booking will be more expensive than an early one, so book in advance to make sure you catch deals and it also secures your chances of the car you wish. People carriers are usually limited in their supply therefore booking in advance will make it yours.

6. Returns policy – In many cases, car suppliers prefer a full tank of fuel to be in the car on its return although others prefer them empty. If you do not do as they ask then they are well within their rights to charge a fee.

7. Credit card limits and hiring a car – Make sure you have enough funds available on your credit card before hiring a car. The company will authorise the card and then cancel it on your return unless there is any damage or excess to pay. If there are not enough funds available then the card and the rental will be cancelled.

8. Traffic laws abroad – Not every country in the EU or elsewhere follows the same road rules as the UK, so it is best to learn about the country and driving before you set off. Cars joining a roundabout in Turkey have right of way, rather than those already on the roundabout, so it is important to learn the rules in advance.

9. Book add-ons in advance – If you’re travelling with small children then make sure you book child seats in advance, or other items such as snow chains, snow tyres and sat navs. The charges are usually higher on the day and those items are usually of limited supply too.

10. Paperwork check – Make sure you have the correct paperwork with your before you leave. Having your credit card, utility bills and return ticket (in the UK, for example), photocard ID and driving license, is of paramount importance or the supplier can reject the rental.

Carrentals.co.uk is the UK’s leading online car hire comparator and compares the best hire car deals in more than 15,000 destinations, and over 50 car hire companies, including Holiday Autos, Alamo, Budget, Sixt, and Auto Europe.

City Hotel Brand Mint Hotel Encouraged By Scottish Hotels Performance In Recent Report

Yesterday, temperatures in Scotland ranked as the highest in the UK, with Aberdeen reaching 23 degrees Celsius on the mercury. It seems however that the country not only tops the climatic charts, but also the hospitality performance rankings.

In a survey carried out by a leading UK accountancy firm, figures revealed that Scottish hotels recorded the most consistent room yield levels of the UK hotel industry over the past five years.

Whilst falls of over 2% have dogged the British hotel industry over the past 5 years, Scottish room yields fell by only 0.2% on average.

City hotel brand Mint Hotel welcomed news that some areas actually experienced improved revenue, with rooms in Aberdeen and Glasgow recording yield increases of 2.4% and 0.5% respectively. A spokesperson for Mint Hotel commented on the findings:

“The figures come as an encouraging sign for hoteliers in Scotland, including ourselves. The knowledge that the country’s popularity as a tourist destination has not faltered under the stretched economic conditions will encourage further investment throughout Scotland, which can only be good news for the country’s tourism industry as a whole.”

Edinburgh was a blotch on the otherwise optimistic outlook with a 1.2% drop. However, room yield in the capital was consistently higher than both Aberdeen’s and Glasgow’s for the duration of the five year period.

However, such positive performance is not expected to remain an exclusive aspect of the Scottish hotel industry for much longer, with the nearing of the Olympic Games in London and across the UK, as well as the imminent Royal Wedding in two weeks time.

For Mint Hotel, whose portfolio of city centre hotels stretches from Glasgow to London (and now into the continent with the recent opening of the Amsterdam hotel), such an exciting programme of events herald sure signs of growth, with thousands of additional visitors flocking to various locations throughout Britain. A spokesperson for the hotel brand said:

“With the upcoming series of global events taking place in London and throughout the UK, including the Royal Wedding, the Olympic Games, and the Champion’s League Final, it is hoped that such encouraging industry figures will not be confined to north of the border.”

The report, Hotel Britain 2011, surveyed 549 hotels, with data referring to the period between 2006 – 2010. 133 of these hotels are located in London, with the remaining 416 situated throughout the rest of the UK. The total number of rooms accounted for by the 549 hotels was 92,117.

Carrentals.co.uk urges customers to book in advance to avoid paying elevated charges for car hire this summer

Top price comparison website Carrentals.co.uk is advising British travellers who want to hire people carriers and MPVs this summer to act quickly. A high demand is anticipated during the school holidays, which should cause rental costs to soar.

Carrentals.co.uk’s figures suggest that the best way to save money on your choice of large vehicle is by booking early. Prices could rise by as much as 50% in the next few months, especially in popular destinations such as Malaga, Paris and Nice, while the cost of hiring a vehicle at the moment is still relatively low.

If car rental prices in Alicante mirror those of last August, they can be expected to almost double in the next six months, rising from the current price of just £16* a day to as much as £31.

This was confirmed recently by Carrentals.co.uk Managing Director Gareth Robinson, who commented: “Hiring an MPV or a people carrier has become rather popular in the last few years, as groups of friends and family get together to share their holidays along with the cost of vehicle hire.

Booking car hire early can make a huge difference to your costs, as the difference in prices between March and August could be as much as £150, which was certainly the case last year.”

This is the perfect time to arrange car hire for August, as the current prices start from just £18* per day from Larnaca Airport, dropping to £17* per day when you collect your desired vehicle from Malaga Airport.
