Holidays in Spain look set to be the most popular option for British people heading abroad this Easter, according to statistics released by a car hire company.

There has been a “surge in bookings” for car rental in Spain over the spring break period, Holiday Autos revealed.

The country topped the list of the most popular destinations based on the firm’s orders for rentals in the weeks beginning March 21st and 28th.

France was revealed as the second most popular country among Brits.

People who choose a Spanish holiday this Easter can book villas in the Costa del Sol and Costa Brava regions to enjoy some sun, while those heading to France can arrange Provence villa rental.

Portugal was ranked fourth in the list of the most popular destinations based on Holiday Autos’ figures, while Italy – also a leading villa holiday destination – came in sixth.

The company encouraged travellers planning to hire a car this Easter to make their booking soon to ensure they get the vehicle they want.
