BRITISH holidaymakers have been advised to steal a car rather than trying to rent one.
Hiring a car abroad was already a massive pain in the arse, and now fake-looking computerised UK driving licenses will make it even more hellish.
Professor Henry Brubaker said: “The car hire place is always in the more obscure region of the airport, with dozens of similar-looking desks staffed by people in blouses who are trained to have a problem with your ID.
“Even if you manage to overcome car hire bureaucracy, you then somehow have to identify your designated white Fiat 500 in a car park containing 8,500 white Fiat 500s.
“And how are you supposed to bring it back with a full tank when there isn’t a garage within twenty miles of the airport? Stick it in a horsebox?”
Professor Brubaker advised Britons to simply smash a window on the nearest reasonable-looking hatchback, hot wire the car using YouTube ‘how to’ videos and then return it a few days later with a note of apology and a conciliatory bottle of wine in the foot well.
Mother-of-two Nikki Hollis said: “We needed a car in Ibiza so we swagged one from a McDonalds car park.
“After getting caught we had to bribe the police, but the kids loved getting their fingerprints done and mugshots make a great souvenir.
“I would recommend it, also because hire cars smell weird.”
