August 19, 2010 Regular breaks during long distance journeys are being promoted by the Highways Agency and Carrentals.co.uk as the two combine forces to tackle the dangerous roads in the UK during the summer. It is all part of the Get Out More campaign that provides UK holidaymakers with the chance to make great savings.

Millions of Brits will be holidaying in the UK this summer following a tradition that started in 2009 when 37 million Brits chose to spend their main holiday in the UK. The importance of taking breaks during long journeys is emphasised by the Highways Agency and Carrentals.co.uk in order to help keep Britain's roads safe.

Car rentals can be organised for less than ever through Carrentals.co.uk and the company is focused on ensuring that its customers drive safely this year. Avoiding bad traffic jams as well as planning out journeys better so they are more interesting will all help to staying safer on the roads this year and these are just a few ideas that the new partnership is bringing to the table.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk spoke out about the new partnership: "Our Get Out More campaign is aimed at helping more families to get out more this summer without breaking the bank. Our new partnership with the Highways Agency will allow us to offer our customers a safer way to travel as well as a cheaper holiday."
The Get Out More section of the Carrentals.co.uk website is the place to go for all the information that you should need to help to plan your journey out more effectively. DAB Traffic Radio along with live traffic maps and route checking systems are just a few of the tools on offer with the new partnership.

'Get Out More' boasts endless great discounts and deals to UK holidaymakers and it offers lots of ideas on how to make the summertime more fun without costing too much. Trips are available at discounted rate to many aquariums, theme parks and museums around the UK.
