Heatwave Sparks Convertible Hire Car Demand 29/03/2012, By Press Association reporters
DEMAND for convertible hire cars has seen a huge spike with the recent unseasonably good weather.
Requests for convertibles from car rental provider Sixt have nearly quadrupled in the last week alone, rising 370%.
The company is predicting that with the Easter holiday approaching and the weather holding firm for now, demand could rise even higher.
The most popular convertible model for Sixt at the moment is the Mercedes E-Class, with bookings taken on almost every one the company has. Also popular are the Volkswagen Eos and Mercedes SLK.
Paul McLoughlin, Managing Director of Sixt UK, said: “What better way to enjoy the sunshine than cruising with the top down. With the recent spate of glorious weather, we've seen requests for convertibles increase nearly four-fold for the Easter period. We've got a great range of Convertibles for hire so welcome those looking to enjoy the sunshine in style.”
