Survey reveals 64 per cent of all UK travel is done by road
A new National Travel Survey reveals that 64 per cent of all travel in the UK is done by road, confirming the British love of motoring. In fact, car and van trips account for 77 per cent of the distance travelled on an average year, in a survey of 6,830 UK households. Whether it’s city slicking or cruising through the countryside, Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, helps Brits get out on the road and enjoy stress-free travel, all year round with a vehicle to suit every budget and every traveller.
Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group, said: “It’s clear from the National Travel Survey that UK travellers prefer to travel by road, rather than choosing the expense and possible delays of train travel. The convenience of car hire from Europcar means customers can take the scenic route or stop off along the way, helping them enjoy the journey.
“With over 250 locations across the UK, you’re never far from a Europcar branch and our free delivery and collection service is ideal for busy travellers. Our vehicles also come with damage liability waiver, theft waiver for added peace of mind. Car and van hire from Europcar is the affordable way to get on the road in the UK.”
