Holidaymakers have been advised to book flights early ahead of this year’s trip abroad because of the large numbers of Brits expected to escape the UK’s shores.
The recommendation comes from Carrentals.co.uk, which says that Switzerland, Florida and Portugal are among the top holiday destinations this Easter.
People appear more likely to go away for longer, with the website revealing that holidaymakers are booking car hire for longer periods once they arrive at their destination.
Gareth Robinson, Carrentals.co.uk managing director, said that he has "definitely seen a change in booking this Easter" after recording a 15 percent increase in the number of people booking a trip abroad.
"As a result they are booking longer escapes to favourites such as Switzerland, the Algarve and Florida, and also newer locations – for example the Atlantic coast in Portugal," he said.
Earlier this year Carrentals.co.uk recommended that families compare all elements of their holiday, including flights, before booking.
