SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- April 13, 2010 -- CarRentals.com, a premier car rental booking company on the web, today announced the availability of the first comprehensive car rental search and booking application for the Apple® iPhone™. Now, on-the-go travelers with the Apple iPhone have immediate access to the amazing car rental deals on CarRentals.com, allowing them to search and book their national and international car rental needs quickly and easily without ever leaving the application. Best of all, it's free.
CarRentals.com connects directly with suppliers' inventory. Because there are no middlemen, CarRentals.com can offer more competitive prices for customers at 15,000 on and off-airport locations around the world. That includes access to big brand names as well as smaller regional carriers. The new iPhone application brings all of that value (and more) to travelers while they're on the go.
Users can search rental car locations by entering an airport code, zip code, city, or current location via the iPhone's GPS. Search results can be sorted by price, vendor, and car type, but more significantly, travelers can book directly on the site without ever leaving the application. The application remembers outstanding reservations, giving users easy access to their confirmation numbers allowing them to view and cancel existing reservations after booking. In addition, if they have any questions about their rentals they can email the CarRentals.com customer support team with the tap of a finger. All information on rental policies, agency location, and contact information is accessible through the application as well.
"The nature of our business means our customers are on the road, literally. So, making a free iPhone application just made sense," said David Morton, co-founder of CarRentals.com. "We work hard to make booking competitively priced car rentals simple and convenient for our millions of value-conscious customers. And now, with our CarRentals.com iPhone application, we can put more deals on more cars at more locations in the palm of your hand."
Consumers can find everything they need at their fingertips, allowing them to search and book a car at low rates, anytime, anywhere. Forget walking up to a car rental counter and booking the high walk-in rates. Now, last minute travelers can save time and money by booking a great rate on CarRentals.com right from their iPhone.
