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.

Once we've tried to rent a car at the destination place and the provider's representative has said that they haven't been available because we are from Russia. Now we reserve a car in advance before departure. Since we've started to use this site, problems or difficulties in obtaining a car have never occurred.

I can't imagine a journey without a car. It's awful to drive by bus. I often use car rental services and arrange everything via this resource. Quite often I get excellent price offers when renting executive cars. I like direct payment without any redirections and lots of offers. Support service works promptly and efficiently at any time of the day, which is also a definite advantage.

We went on vacation to the Balkans. We rederved cars in different countries so that there was a new car in each country. We drove each car for no more than 2 days. It was this search engine that helped a lot to find cars. It's not difficult at all. We recommend this resource)).

Car rental is suitable only for experienced drivers, as not everyone can drive in Rome. Nonetheless I\'ve decided to visit this ancient city by car. By the way, it is very interesting and unusual. It is easy to see the city from unconventional angles, inaccessible to tourists. I\'ve rented a car via bookingcar.eu. I\'ve liked the fact that the base cost\'s included insurance and other options that are necessary in a city with intensive traffic and a peculiar driving style.
