I used the services of a wide variety of car rental sites, and also rented a car at the destination place for many times. For some time past I use only this resource. For me, the advantages are obvious. It's easy rent and possibility to pay immediately via the site. By the way, you can forget about the situation when there is no suitable car for you, as it's often happened when renting a car at the destination place. I constantly recommend it to my friends.

Last year we went on a trip with friends and rented a car. It turned out that all people travel that way. We had a great time. This year we've looked for a car via this resource on tha advice of our friends. Everything is easy, simple and understandable. The right car has been found in just a few minutes. We've been pleased with the low rental cost and an extended package of inclusive terms. We paid for the car on the site, and got it on time at the airport without problems.

When we went to visit sunny Spain, we decided to do it by the car to see more sights and not to spend time sitting in the hotel. We searched for cars via several car aggregators, until we found this one. The most complete sample and very profitable offers. Despite our worries, everything was fine.
