Popular online rental rate comparator makes browsing, booking and managing car hire details easier using iPhone
Carrentals.co.uk, the leader in online car hire rate comparison, has launched a new application for iPhones just in time for the release of Apple’s latest model. The new app makes it easy for customers to check out the latest prices from more than 50 of the world’s leading car hire firms and make bookings to 15,000 of the world’s most popular destinations for travel.
Having already managed over 650,000 rental car bookings since its inception, Carrentals.co.uk is taking things truly high-tech and purely mobile with its latest offering: an iPhone app. Car hire has never been more convenient thanks to the application, which allows people to compare prices in every category of vehicle and make a reservation from anywhere at anytime.
The list of rentals currently available is the most comprehensive on the internet, ensuring that customers get the right most up-to-date information when making their car hire decisions. The reference number is sent to your iPhone as soon as the rental booking is completed, confirming the transaction. The rental voucher is also immediately sent to the user’s email so that everything is ready to go prior to car pick up. All the details of bookings can be managed using the iPhone app, even cancellations and changes.
Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, Gareth Robinson, says: “The era of smartphones is truly upon us, so we want our customers to be able to be able to use theirs to make and manage rental bookings no matter where they are. The iPhone app we just released takes all the power of our online booking website and makes it mobile, allowing you to update and review your booking details whenever needed.”
“The timing of our application couldn’t be better considering that Apple has just released its new iPhone 4S. Travellers on the go have been asking for this app for a while now, and we have delivered.”
