Online comparator gives smartphone users new tool for sourcing
and comparing car hire wherever they are
6 October 2011 – Award-winning car hire price comparator Carrentals.co.uk has this
week introduced a new app for iPhone smartphone users to help them source car hire
from all the industry’s leading suppliers - no matter where they are.
The company - which helps travellers source car hire from all the leading names
including Alamo, Auto Europe, Budget, Ebookers, Hertz, Holiday Autos, Opodo, Sixt
and Thrifty - has produced the new app to help Carrentals.co.uk users find cheap car rental through their iPhones.
For added peace of mind, once the user has completed a booking using the iPhone app
they then receive a reference number sent to the handset - plus also a voucher via
email. Carrentals.co.uk iPhone app users can also log on to make cancellations or
amendments to a booking using the app.
Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, Gareth Robinson, comments: “Smartphone usage
is now pretty much ubiquitous, and so every company has to adapt to move with the
times - including ourselves! Our new iPhone app just continues to make our service
more convenient and simple to use than ever for our customers."
“With Apple updating their models all the time and iPhone 4s scheduled for release
before too long it made sense to introduce our new app right about now.”
