Lightwater, United Kingdom (PressExposure) December 30, 2008 -- Car hire demand is on the up on the back of heavy snowfall for this time of year and a subsequently early ski season opening, according to online car hire comparison specialist Carrentals.co.uk .
Resorts in the leading ski destinations of Switzerland, Austria and Italy are experiencing unseasonably high levels of snow, with some resorts reporting up to 130cm on their slopes already. Skiers are jetting off to the pistes sooner than usual as a result.
Gareth Robinson, managing director of Carrentals.co.uk, said, âWe want travellers to be aware of the situation so are appealing for them to book their car hire ahead of time to avoid disappointment and problems securing a good value deal on arrival.â

Gareth Robinson continued, âAvailability can still be had but with the heavy snowfall continuing, we are recommending that holidaymakers secure a good deal by researching and booking car hire online before travelling.
