New research reveals that women are absolutely in the driving seat when it comes to sorting out the main elements of the family holiday.

The research by rentals company, Owners Direct, found that once the holiday destination had been chosen 82% of women were then left to sort out the flights, accommodation and the booking of the hire car.

However, once they'd arrived at their destination the men would take charge of the wheels of the hire car, with almost 70% of men doing the driving on the holiday.

To make sure you're in the driving seat when it comes to booking the right hire car, don't foget our super nifty widget which makes sure you never again hire a car which is too small or too large for your needs.

The quick and easy-to-use widget, 'Find the Right Car for You', features simple (and fun) graphics for people, children, suitcases, prams and car seats which can be dragged and dropped into an adjacent car icon, which then gets bigger or smaller depending on the load, before giving a recommendation of the most appropriate car, and all in a matter of seconds.
