Yellow Day deals for car hire in summer with Centauro Rent a Car
Do you know why June 20th is considered the happiest day of the year? A group of psychologists and meteorologists came to this conclusion after finding what they call "the formula for happiness". It’s made up of five factors that undoubtedly help to improve our mood: the increase in temperatures, the proximity of the holidays, more sunshine, the extra summer pay and the reduction of hours in the working day. This happens mainly in countries that have pronounced seasons and that, due to their latitudes, are entering summer. It is therefore known as Yellow Day: Yellow = Sun = Happiness.
Undoubtedly, the arrival of summer usually allows us to take advantage of our time thanks to increased hours of daylight, more occasions for leisure and holidays to travel and discover new places. These are reasons enough to make us happy. But if you’re still not convinced that this formula for happiness is true, we’ll give you one that will definitely guarantee you days full of happiness, and you can even decide when you want them: Summer + Road trip + Centauro.

Rent your car for the holiday San Juan in Spain on Yellow Day and experience true happiness
People who visit Spain often think that this country has everything you need to achieve happiness: its extraordinary climate, the warmth of its people, a diverse and rich history and culture and a cuisine with specialties such as tapas and paella that are more than just food—they’re a way of life.
If there is a specific date that is linked to the summer’s arrival, it’s the celebration of San Juan. The bonfires dedicated to celebrating the holiday in many Spanish cities are famous, especially the Bonfires of San Juan in Alicante blazing from the 20th to the 24th of June. During this festival, huge monuments are built to satirize characters of social and political life, which are then burned. Participants then jump over the bonfires while the figures are aflame. The previous days are filled with parades showing off regional costumes, tastings that boast the local gastronomy and nightly parties which seem to have no end. Of course, the beach will be your greatest ally for rest during the day. Plus, with your rental car you can take advantage and visit places in the surrounding area such as Benidorm or Torrevieja.
Being happy is easy when you’re touring Italy in a rental car
Italy is usually synonymous with happiness. The reasons? The incomparable beauty of its cities and landscapes, the passionate character of its people and its delicious cuisine. If you decide to take a trip to Italy during the summer solstice, the Festival of San Giovanni is a must-see event. It is held every year on the last weekend of June on Lake Como, which is connected to the island of Comacina, close to Milan. The festival recreates the assault on the island during the period of the battles with Barbarossa. In addition, you can enjoy an amazing fireworks display that illuminates the entire lake. This festival is full of history and culture, offering us a glimpse of Lake Como’s long legacy with visual impressions that will leave you speechless.
Road trip + Summer + Portugal = Happiness
Portugal has so many places to discover that will surely make you very happy. You can enjoy the Festival of St. John or, more precisely, the Festa de São João. It starts on the night of the 23rd and ends on the 24th of June. There are many traditions associated with this day such as launching small hot air balloons, jumping over the bonfires and watching fireworks along the Douro River at the end of the night.
Another event that can’t be missed when traveling to Portugal is the Noites de Levante festival in Olhão. For four nights at the end of August, Olhão, a town only 20 minutes from Faro, will be buzzing with the craziest characters we can imagine, making it one of Algarve’s landmark summer events.

Another extravaganza that will fascinate you is the Moon Festival. It is a magical evening that is celebrated on August the 1st throughout Greece.
