When we sent our girlfriends for shopping, we rented the car via this resource and chose an inexpensive car, despite their desire to show off. They liked the trip very much. And The obligatory insurance against road accidents came in useful. Besides, it was already included in the rental cost. Our sweethearts met with a minor accident. By the way, it wasn't their fault. As a result, everything worked out, and we had a great time at home))). So the insurance is necessary.

I love to visit unfamiliar places with my wife. Not so long ago, we returned from Greece. We traveled on a rented car and the price for the week was quite low. We found the car, reserved it and paid for it via this car aggregator. Upon the arrival in Athens, we got the clean car with a full tank without any problems. We drove out and looked at a large number of attractions without haste. We liked to travel by car.

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.

I've already traveled about half of Europe. I rent a car and go wherever I want. I've used this resource for severa times. I've always managed to find and book what I need. There is always a large package of options, included in the cost, so you avoid overpaying. I like to rent expensive cars. I've already recommended this site to all my friends. It's nice to organze travel via this site.
