The UK stretches 900 miles from the South Western tip of England at Land`s End to the most Northerly point at John O`Groats. In between there are areas of spectacular natural, cultural and historic significance, covering every corner of the land. So if you`re planning on checking out what the UK has to offer, why spend endless hours on boring motorways, trying to reach a beauty spot at the other side of the country and get back before you get stuck in bank-holiday traffic? A great alternative is to fly to your destination or take the train and hire a car locally.
While the price of just about everything soars, car hire is becoming cheaper and cheaper. The growing competition between car rental companies means that hiring a car at your destination for a long weekend is a hassle-free way to see areas of the country.
Some companies offer free delivery to your door and most companies allow different pick-up and drop-off points. This means that you have even more flexibility with your journey.
If live in the midlands and want to discover all that Scotland has to offer, why not take the short flight from Birmingham International to Inverness Airport, drive the scenic route along Lock Ness, spend the night in the lovely town of Fort William and take in the spectacular backdrop of Ben Nevis. Take in the beauty of Loch Lomond as you travel further south to the welcoming city of Glasgow. Party the night away in one of the city`s many friendly pubs. Have Sunday lunch in Beautiful Stirling and admire the beauty of Stirling Castle and the Wallace Monument before hitting Edinburgh`s Royal Mile. Edinburgh Castle is one of the most beautiful in the land and makes the city a great place to finish your Scottish adventure before dropping the car back and flying home from Edinburgh`s International Airport.
Flying to England`s remote, but spectacular Southwest and hiring a car can enable a similarly action-packed weekend to be enjoyed. Fly to Bristol from one of more than 10 British airports, or to Southampton or Torquay and fit the spa city of Bath, Salisbury`s spectacular cathedral, the ancient wonder of Stonehenge, the Eden project, traditional seaside towns along the English Rivera, the granite tors on Dartmoor, the wilderness of Exmoor, the North and South Downs and New Forest and golden sands in Portsmouth. In just three or four days you can get a wonderful taste of England`s Roman history and its spectacular national parks. There are endless golfing, surfing and hiking options for the more adventurous.
After an action-packed weekend in one of Britain`s beautiful regions, you’ll never want to spend a weekend sitting on a sightless motorway ever again. And with cheap car hire available most UK cities, airports and large towns, you’ll never have to.
