Car Trawler, one of the world’s largest car rental providers, aggregates offers from hundreds of leading and independent car rental companies. The cars offered by Car Trawler Company are available in 135 countries and 17,000 cities and airports.
CarTrawler connects customers and travel companies to more ground based transport solutions in more cities than they will find anywhere else. Our service is designed around the needs of three very different but equally important audiences:We provide ground transport companies such as car rental, limousine, rail, shuttle and taxi services with a highly efficient route to market. The scale of our marketplace gives them access to a global customer base that is insulated from seasonal peaks and troughs and provides them with a gateway to all segments of the travel industry.
CarTrawler has switched on its latest ‘Direct Connect’ technology for its airline, consumer and business partner web sites. The new technology means customers using CarTrawler’s AJAX booking engine will be able to retrieve pricing, availability and also confirm bookings up to one hour before pickup time. The company claims this is the first time consumers can make a booking guaranteed on the car rental supplier’s own inventory system immediately.
"We have finally solved one of the biggest problems in the car rental industry – by completely eliminating the manual processes of confirming consumer bookings with the car rental companies,” said Niall Turley, director of CarTrawler.
