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 always travel alone. I get where I need and rent a car. Then I go where my heart wants. I like it very much. Once I failed to rent a car. After that, I began to use the services of online providers. This particular resource suits me best of all. I recommend it.

Me and my friends organized a car run around the countries of the Western Europe. We enjoyed the roads and everything new that we saw. Everyone rented what he wanted. And each of us was satisfied, as we didn't overpay. We searched for cars to rent via the Internet. We found cars and paid for them via this site and eventually we received all the necessary package included in the price. It's a very good approach, because you don't have to pay separately for each service.
