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 visited Moldova to research it. It was this search engine that helped me to find a good car for traveling, because the others simply ignored the country. I booked a rental and paid for it without problems on the site. I got the car easily. I'm satisfied.

Me and my friends went to the rally along the Mongolian steppe. We got a lot of impressions and adrenaline. We looked for offroaders for a long time and could find them only via this aggregator. We booked the cars there immediately. At the destination place, we received the cars without problems. We recommend it and will use it again.

I don't like to spend the vacation at the pool. Motion is very important for me. Recently I've driven around almost the whole Italy. I rented a car via this resource. I've been pleased with the opportunity to find a car with hybrid system. The rental cost is quite affordable. The trip has been great. I've visited the places that I wanted to visit for a long time. I haven't been depend on anyone. I've liked everything. There is payment on the car aggregator without redirections and additional charges.

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.
