Great Britain has more to it than meets the eye. For example, you are never more than 75 miles away from a coastline. So, this summer, why not pick up a car from luxury car hire experts Avis Prestige and head out to discover England, Scotland and Wales for your staycation? You never know - you might find something new on your travels!
If you’re off to Wales, did you know that Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch is in fact the longest name of a town in the world? Head to Anglesey to take a look at this unassuming but record-breaking little town for yourself, and on your way make sure to take the scenic route and enjoy the stunning landscape of the Snowdonia National Park.
Thinking about exploring the south of England? If you take a trip to the New Forest National Park, beware of the New Forest ponies who wander freely and rarely bat an eyelid to their four-wheeled counterparts! Be sure to stop at Beaulieu, home to the National Motor Museum where you can enjoy over 280 vehicles from across the years (and stars of TV and film) as well as Palace House, where visitors can get a glimpse inside the Montagu family home.
Alternatively, you may want to head north for your staycation and cross the border into Scotland – the birthplace of golf. Why not stop for a break at the world’s oldest golfing pub, Ye Olde Golf Tavern? Founded in 1456, this pub is located right on the edge of Bruntsfield Links Golfing Society in Edinburgh, one of Scotland’s few free public golf courses and where visitors can play the oldest short course in the world.
With an array of choice on offer from Avis Prestige, whether you have the urge for roof down thrills or spacious, robust 4x4s, we have something to suit everyone’s hire requirements, from convertible car hire to 4x4 car hire, Mercedes-Benz to Land Rover. With convenient pick-up points across the UK including London, Birmingham, Manchester and Edinburgh, it’s never been easier to get away in style with Avis Prestige.
If you’re looking to hire a car which allows you to enjoy the summer sun without compromising on space, then make sure you take a look at hiring the Mercedes-Benz E300 AMG Cabriolet from Avis Prestige, experts in convertible and Mercedes car hire.
Combining the practicality of a four-seat saloon with the sporty feeling of a convertible, the E300 offers drivers the elegance synonymous with Mercedes-Benz whilst ensuring there is no need to compromise when it comes to enjoying your staycation. Though you may expect the boot to be small with a convertible, the ample 390 litres of space only drops to 300 litres with the roof down, so you don’t need to worry about packing light if you want to make the most of the sun.
The roof can be opened or closed in just 20 seconds, and you needn’t worry that passengers in the rear of the car will be buffeted by winds with the roof open; Mercedes have developed a new AIRCAP system, consisting of a wind deflector which sits at the top of the windscreen and can be deployed at the push of a button. The electronically adjustable deflector diverts the air flow higher over the windscreen, which stops rear seat passengers feeling the effects of the wind at high speeds. Conversely, on hot days AIRCAP can also assist in keeping the cabin cool when run with the air conditioning.

If you want a larger vehicle to accompany you on your travels this summer, then take a look at the Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 D 4MATIC AMG Line from Avis Prestige. Replacing the large ML 4x4, the GLE brings fresh looks and even more enhanced technology – not forgetting of course, a powerful V6 engine in the model we’ve chosen for our 4x4 car hire fleet.
With enough room to hold five adults, four large cases and two small cases (and the option to swap luggage space for an additional two seats in the rear), this luxury 4x4 is a great option for those taking a long break with the whole family, or even for those who just appreciate the extra space and imposing looks the Mercedes GLE has to offer. With a whole host of technology available on this model, you will be sure to travel in luxury with a DAB radio, cruise and climate control. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the size of the vehicle when parking at your destination – built-in all-round parking sensors and a reversing camera will help make sure you park safely every time. Mercedes car hire has never been easier.
