We had a perfect travel around Verona and its suburbs. Everything was very romantic. We went there right after the wedding and rented a car to be free to move. We found a car via booking Car and immediately paid for it without any problems. Upon the arrival we got the car with a full tank. By the way, it was not necessary to return the car to the place where we took it.

We had a great trip to Poland. Most of the time we spent in small towns and farms. Everything was very nice and home-like. The car was rented in advance without a limited mileage. We got the required insurance package without overpaying via this site. We received a car in Warsaw without any problems.

On the advice of my friend, I reserved a car via this site before the trip. At the airport of Milan, we were waited by a representative of the company, who gave the keys to my sports car. My husband was glad to feel like a millionaire instead of traveling by bus. The price of that luxurious car wasn't very expensive.

The options that you are offered and the options that you find by yourself are always different. Recently I've been looking for options to go on vacation. I've decided to go to the agency (I've had no time at all). But when they've offered to reserve a car that would cost as a third part of that car for a week, I've been shocked. I've gone to the popular site and not only found, but also rented the required car at the ridiculous price.

I considered a variety of car aggregators and car rental sites. This resource has become the most reliable among others for me. The main point is the lack of redirection when paying, that means the minimum risk of phishing or infection of the computer, which is extremely important for banking transactions and other types of payment. So I strongly recommend the most reliable site.
