November 08, 2010 (PRLEAP.COM) Travel News
November 8, 2010 The winner's video 'a superhero's car?', was sent in by Tim Bunn from Middlesex, earning him a 16GB Apple iPad as the top prize from Carrentals.co.uk.

The online competition started in July, where Carrentals.co.uk asked internet viewers to piece together a video which lasted 90 seconds. The videos were then submitted and put on Carrentals.co.uk YouTube page. Carrentals.co.uk then watched and made decisions on the best video, and awarded the top three best videos with great prizes.

"Winning an iPad is brilliant! I've never won anything before and I still can't believe my luck!", said Tim Bunn, the competition winner.

CarrentalsCarHire is the name of Carrentals.co.uk's YouTube page, where the videos, including the winner's 'a superhero's car?' can be seen. Alongside Tim's number one video, £50 worth of John Lewis vouchers went award to 'Mini Motorhead', and third place went to 'My Ride', which bagged £25 worth of shopping vouchers.

Carrentals.co.uk's spokesperson and Managing Director, Mr Gareth Robinson, says, "The response to our first online video competition has been amazing, with people putting lots of time into adding to our YouTube page. Some of the videos were very cleverly done, but Tim's stood out as the best, in our eyes. I and the whole team would like to thank everyone for participating and say 'well done' to Tim on his success!".
