We had a wonderful trip along the evening desert while traveling to Dubai. We rented a car at home in advance via the site Bookingcar. We decided to do it due to the peak season of such trips in order not to remain without a car. There were no problems or difficulties in obtaining or returning the car. Everything was perfect!

Recently I've toured Hungary. I've got amazing imressions and memories. I've rented a car. It's been very cheap taking into account unlimited mileage, full package of inclusive terms and ability to return the car in another place. Such luxurious conditions could be found with the help of this car aggregator. I recommend it, because now I use it constantly.

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.
