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.

Our big company went on the roads of Italy. The final goal was Venice. We rented a minivan and did not regret it. The conditions were great, and the rental cost was ridiculous as we chipped in together. We've selected a car here, since this site gives the opportunity to find a car that can be returned not in the country where it was received. We liked everything very much. There is easy navigation and simple search filter on the site. It's impossible to get confused.

I had to travel a lot to different cities of Macedonia on business. In order not to spend a lot of money on trips, I rented a car via this aggregator before the departure. The choice was made in a few minutes, I paid for a car via the site, and there was no problem with the car at the destination place. I recommend it to those who save time and money. The site is reliable, the sample is large even for captious people.
