We went fishing to popular Sevan. For the sake of convinience, we reserved a car and paid for it via the car aggregator. By the way, it was very cheap. There weren't problems with the receipt of the car at the destination place, although the agent tried to impose a paid insurance, but he yielded after learning that we had paid for it.

We have been traveling around Europe for several years with the whole family and only by car. We have a great time when renting a van and driving along the most interesting places and excellent roads. We always use this site. We've seen countries not from the tourist, but from the most ordinary, but interesting point of view. The car aggregator always helps us. It is convenient to pay for the reservation on the site.

I have been using this aggregator for a long time when searching for a car to travel around different countries. I know that the sample of options is always the largest, and there is no fees. I've compared it with the prices at the destination place for many times. In general, it helps to do everything in advance in a couple of minutes.
