Welcome To The New Look usrentacar.co.uk

Hi all,

Welcome to the new look usrentacar.co.uk website, we hope you like it; many hours have gone in to making this latest upgrade the very best, our aim was to add the very latest design trends with the very best tech available to us.

We encourage constructive feedback, so if you have anything you’d like to add please feel free to comment below or email me at jamest@usrentacar.co.uk.

Today’s post will simply highlight some of the major new features we’re going to introduce and briefly explain how they work and our thinking behind them.


Our homepage has undergone a massive change, although our corporate colours remain the same the look between the sites couldn’t be more different.

The first change occurs in the header (top) where we have embed social book marking options with facebook, twitter and google+. Please feel free to click on them to express you “liking” of the new design.

Below this we have added quick links to log in to your usrentacar account either using your unique usrentacar.co.uk account or via facebook connect. We have also added quick contact detail dynamic drop downs showing our contact telephone number including working hours and contact email addresses.

Also you will notice the return of our live chat facility, this feature has made a comeback purely on the strength of customer feedback, and through our facebook page we discovered this option was a popular feature on previous designs.

We’ve added a large image based gallery where our latest deal and special offers will be displayed more clearly.

In the booking engine we’ve added a new filter which allows you to pick the vehicle type you would like a quote on, previous we returned all vehicles, which some found annoying.

Below the engine we’ve added a new social element showcasing our facebook, twitter, google+ and pinterest account, please feel free to get involved.


We’ve adde d a new image based blog section, which will display our last 5 posts and allow you to visit them quickly, our blog at present houses over 500 unique posts full of handy USA car hire tips.


usrentacar.co.uk has 10’s of thousands of car rental reviews dating back to 2006, until now these reviews have been buried within our results page, our latest release brings these reviews to the forefront, displaying the last 5 reviews left by our customers either via our usrentacar voucher app or our after care emails.

We’ve also created a stand alone review engine which can be accessed from our homepage so you can view any USA location and read real reviews from real people.


Car hire in the USA can be confusing if you’ve never done it before, hey it can be confusing even if you’ve done it 20 times. We have a database of over 200 questions and answers which can now be accessed directly from our homepage, however the best part is that you the customer can rank the question you’ve read by clicking on the thumbs up icon, this way the questions that are most important to our users will rank the highest.

The results page

The results page has also been given a massive overhaul, out have gone some of the “bells and whistles” in favour of a simpler, quicker page. You can still filter your results or edit your hire details by using the tab at the top of the page but by removing the side filters we now have the space to offer a more transparent pricing structure, showing exactly what is included in each package, we’ve also decided to rename the packages we offer, settling on Silver, Gold and Platinum.

Taking advantage of the data produced via our iPhone and Android app we’ve added a wait time feature showing the average time our customers have queued to collect their car hire, also within this information column we’ve also added a choice product alert for those suppliers that allow you to select from a range of vehicle instead of having a vehicle allocated.

Sharing your car hire quote has received a revamp, the additional features allow you to post your quote directly to your facebook timeline or twitter feed with a direct link back to your search.

The rest of the site’s functionality is largely unchanged but has received a bit of visual maintenance and bookings can be completed by connecting via facebook.

What do you think of the new design?

Anything we’ve missed?
