I used several site for car search and rental. A couple of times there were errors when I applied to the support service on other sites, and here they answered me immediately and helped to resolve some problems.

I considered a variety of car aggregators and car rental sites. This resource has become the most reliable among others for me. The main point is the lack of redirection when paying, that means the minimum risk of phishing or infection of the computer, which is extremely important for banking transactions and other types of payment. So I strongly recommend the most reliable site.

Some time ago, I've analyzed the main tourist aggregators for car rental around the world. After numerous tests and comparisons, I can say that this site works faster than others, albeit not much, has the largest base for analysis and provides maximum options. The absence of redirection to other sites is an undoubted disadvantage in terms of security, as it excludes the possibility of phishing redirection.
