Introduction

Comparing prices when looking for a rental car is time-consuming and complicated. It is often particularly difficult to find out what the conditions of the insurance offered by the rental company are. Especially abroad, it is difficult for consumers to find an attractive offer. The idea of a car rental platform was born.
