FARMINGTON, Conn., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The car rental market represents an integral part of the travel industry. An improving financial landscape and higher spending on leisure activities and overseas travel means a tidal surge in demand for car rental services in the last few years. The US car rental market remains the undisputed leader.
An absence of regulatory standards to guide the car rental industry means that each company formulates its own set of rules, usually based on maximizing revenue generation. This unregulated system creates confusion and fluctuations in price and service at the customer's cost; hence, most car renters will either research prices with local agencies for rental prices or browse for an optimal price on the internet.
Another trend in the car rental market is the rise in online transactions. Car rental companies have implemented easy online payment and booking options to further leverage the internet as a major customer channel.
Global Information Inc offers market research reports on the global car rental industry from our leading partner publishers. Two new reports are highlighted below.
