How the Internet Has Changed the Car Hire Industry

Isn't the Internet brilliant! You can see what your friends are doing in real time, phone them, text them, view photos of them, nudge them, wink at them, play games with them, befriend them, defriend them, like them, unlike them, comment on their photos, you can even marry them online!

But how has the internet changed the car hire industry? I guess the first and best thing for consumers is the Internet has made it cheaper and easier for people to hire a car from anywhere in the world at anytime of the day at the click of a button. Before, you didn't know what you were getting, you couldn't compare prices as easy as you can today and you needed to spend precious time - something we all don't want to waste. Let's face it...time is precious! We need it for our families, our friends and for the good of our lives!

The car hire industry is booming thanks to the internet! The largest car rental companies such as Avis, Europcar and Budget are competing like never before to provide consumers with the ultimate cheap deal, and agents alike are madly selling cheap car hire at prices never seen before. Its all about distribution, and the internet providing a global perspective. Never before could your corporate headquarters be able to target sales to people on the other side of the world at the click of a button or never before could a small internet car hire company compete with the big players as easy as they do today. The Internet has provided a level playing field for car hire with competition, mobility, and simplicity.

So when your next booking a car on the internet, don't take it for granted!
