For Americans and those travellers fortunate enough to be enjoying the US summer season 4th of July celebrations are nearly upon us.
It is the National Holiday of the United States and is celebrated in style all over the country. Celebrations include barbecues, parades, fireworks and various other ceremonies and public events. The 1st week of July is the most popular travel time on the US calendar.
It is a very busy time at all the airports and on all of the roads as Americans enjoy their vacation time. If you haven’t already organised your travels then take this as your official reminder to do so. We can find you the car you need with the extras you need now. But remember some popular cars, extras and pick up locations will sell out fast as this is their peak season!
