usrentacar.co.uk In The Media

Hi all,

As you will be aware the usrentacar voucher app has been knocking around for just over a year now. The main reason we created the app was to get rid of the countless paper vouchers our customers would have to take with them and produce at the counter, which has worked perfectly.

This week a couple of travel media outlets have picked up on one of the other unique aspects of the app, our Wait Time feature.

Respected travel tech site, Tnooz wrote this article regarding the Wait Time feature yesterday - http://www.tnooz.com/2012/05/21/mobile/car-hire-service-claims-first-with-mobile-led-technology-to-provide-wait-times/

A good piece explaining how the Wait Time system works and how we have used mobile data to increase customer knowledge.

The second article actually appears on one of my favourite sites, AutoRentalNews. Auto Rental News is a main stay of the car rental industry and has been for many years backed up by a magazine, website and trade shows. You can read their take on the Wait Times feature here - http://www.autorentalnews.com/Channel/Rental-Operations/News/Story/2012/05/USRentACar-co-uk-Reveals-Customer-Reported-Wait-Times.aspx

The article shows the wait times for Alamo, Budget and Dollar from 3 major locations and mentions our new deals with Thrifty and National.

So our Wait Time feature seems to be a bit of a hit, remember you to can add your wait time by downloading the usrentacar voucher app on IOS or Android systems for free.

Version 1.2 Of The usrentacar Voucher App Now Available

Hi all,

Have you downloaded the usrentacar voucher app?

If your answer is yes, then well done you’re obviously very clever and probably very attractive….oh and check your updates…

If the answer is no, then get yourself to the app store as we’ve just added new features.

This morning apple approved the latest version of the usrentacar voucher app version 1.2. The voucher app’s primary role allows our customers to produce their phone instead of the usual paper voucher.

Other functions include our exclusive wait time feature and our live review option allowing customers to provide a photo and comments regarding their USA car hire.

New features

The major new feature of the usrentacar voucher app is the introduction of our Car Finder feature.

Car Finder takes advantage of the iPhones built in gps feature, and is designed to help you find your vehicle after a long day at the theme parks or a hard day shopping at the Mall.

We’ve also integrated a few Push reminders to make our customers aware of when their vouchers are ready and prompt them to add their wait time and personal review.

I’ll post further information about this features next week but in the mean time, what are you waiting for, getting downloading now…

Search “usrentacar” in the app store or click here.

Current Car Hire Wait Times At Orlando International Airport

Hi all,

Back in July I posted about the current car hire wait times at Orlando International Airport,  today I thought it might be an ideal time to revisit this post and see if any of the supplier have managed to decrease their queue times.

Wait Time is a feature of the usrentacar voucher app, which can be downloaded for free from either the apple store or the Android Market, the app allows usrentacar customers to view the wait time for their specific supplier for that day or display the overall average time for that location. All the times displayed are specific to the customers pick up location and supplier.

Customer’s are encouraged to leave their own wait time which helps us build up the appropriate data.

In July when I posted about the average wait times at Orlando International Airport, Alamo Rent A Car and Budget Rent A Car were top of the tree with an average wait time of 23 mins, 3 months on lets take a look at the results.

Average Supplier Wait Time at MCO

Dollar Rent A Car – Average Wait Time – 12 Minutes

Alamo Rent  A Car – Average Wait Time – 16 Minutes

Budget Rent A Car - Average Wait Time – 17 Minutes

So each of our suppliers Wait Time’s have improved since July, however hats off to Dollar Rent A Car who have decreased their average wait time at Orlando International Airport from 30 minutes to just 12 minutes! Great work guys.

What are you experiences of collecting from Orlando International Airport?

Current Wait Times At Orlando International Airport

Hi all,

One of the main features of our iPhone and Android app is the exclusive wait time feature.

This feature allows our customers to view the average time previous customers have had to wait to collect their vehicle and in turn; allow them to add their own wait time.

So 3 full months after its release I thought I would post the wait times for Alamo, Budget and Dollar from Orlando International Airport, one of the busiest airports in America.

Supplier Wait Times

Alamo Rent A Car – Average Wait Time 23 mins

Budget Rent  A Car – Average Wait Time 23 mins

Dollar Rent A Car – Average Wait Time 30 mins

As peak season is upon us you can see that the average wait time is quite high.  We suggest taking advantage of the pre-registration options found on usrentacar.co.uk.

What are your experiences of queuing for your car hire?

regards,

James,
