The rental car app makes it possible for users to search through more than 15,000 locations found both in the United States and around the world. You’ll be able to find what you want and book it in mere minutes.

Have Your Car Waiting

Instead of getting off the plane in your destination and then dealing with finding a rental car, why not book it in advance and make your travels smooth? The CarRentals - CarRentals.com app makes it possible to book a rental based on the city, zip code, airport code, or even the current location using your device’s GPS. As mentioned there are more than 15,000 locations both internationally and within the country so that means there’s a good chance you’ll find a location nearby. Another bonus is that the app tries to provide you with the most competitive pricing out there without the needs for any coupons.

The CarRentals - CarRentals.com app is free to use and requires iOS 7.0 or later. Earlier this year there were a number of bug fixes made that have made the search process faster and smoother when looking for a same-day car rental. The app currently has four out of five stars from users who seem pretty pleased with the offering. Some users have found minor issues with the app.

The Booking Experience

Using the CarRentals - CarRentals.com app is quite simple as you've got a variety of ways to search. There is also a comparison of rental rates so you can be sure you pick what matches your needs. Bookings can be made through the app and you can view them at any time or cancel a reservation. The CarRentals.com customer support representatives are available as well if you need help. Even if you're booking last minute you'll want to try the app over booking in person because it can still save you money in most cases.

The user interface, although simple to navigate, is a bit dull. There could definitely be improvements here. The fact that you get to compare the different companies all on one screen though is really helpful and not all the apps offer that feature.

Final Thoughts
