PARSIPPANY, N.J.–(Marketwire – September 16, 2010) – Whether it’s popular tourist attractions like Stonehenge in England, or more off-the-beaten-path destinations such as the prehistoric cave paintings in Lascaux, France, the fact is that many of Europe’s great wonders are best visited by car. And with fall being the perfect time of year to visit Europe, Avis Rent A Car today announced its annual European Fall Getaway promotion, where travelers can save up to 20 percent on rentals of three days or more when visiting any of 23 countries in Europe.
“Shoulder season is a great time to visit Europe — near-perfect weather, lower rates, more availability at hotels and shorter lines at popular attractions,” said Kaye Ceille, senior vice president of global travel and partnership sales for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. “Each year, our European Fall Getaway promotion is well-received by Avis customers. We’re happy to bring it back and offer Avis renters an easy way to discover the historic and cultural wonders the continent has to offer.”
European Fall Getaway discounts are available on reservations made no later than November 5 for rentals beginning on or before December 15, 2010. The promotion is open to U.S. and Canada residents and is valid at participating locations in Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Lithuania, Macedonia, Malta, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
