GLOBAL DIRECTORY

The travel industry is one of the biggest industries in the world, comprising a vast array of businesses such as airlines, railways, cruise lines, and car rentals, along with travel operators, agents and suppliers. The car rental market that forms an integral part of this industry consists of two primary sectors namely General (which includes airport and non-airport segments) and Insurance Replacement. While the General car rental market includes numerous key companies, which rent cars mainly to business and leisure travelers, the Insurance Replacement segment rent cars primarily to people who have lost their vehicles due to theft, accidents, or breakdowns.

A key aspect that sets apart the car rental from other industries is the absence of regulatory standards to guide the industry. Therefore, as the industry follows no generalized business patterns, each company formulates its own set of rules, governed by a cold-eyed focus on maximum revenue generation. This unregulated system causes difficulties to customers both in terms of price as well as service, thereby leaving the task of verifying the authenticity of deals to customers. As a result, most customers resort to either checking up with local agencies for rental prices or rummage for an optimal price on the internet, before hiring a car.

The car rental market is witnessing a rise in the number of online transactions. In line with the trend, car rental companies are leveraging the internet to provide customers with easy online payment and booking options. Similarly, in tune with the growing need for safeguarding the environment by reducing hazardous emissions, eco-friendly cars such as electric, natural-gas, and hybrid low-emission cars, are making significant in-roads into the car rental industry. The trend is taking off with several rental companies expanding their fleet of eco-friendly cars.
