Wait Time with usrentacar.co.uk®

Hi all,

Apologies if I’m boring you with our new car hire app, but the launch has been very exciting for us and I cannot promise that these posts will stop any time soon :-) .

Over the weekend, supported by a very good download Friday, the usrentacar.co.uk app reached the giddy heights of 67th in the app store travel  chart! For a niche car hire app we feel this is a great achievement so a BIG thank you to all of those who have downloaded it.

Now back to the main point of this post.

One of the main and unique parts to the usrentacar voucher app is our Wait Time feature.

What is Wait Time?

The Wait Time feature tells our customer’s the average time it takes  to collect their vehicle from their specific location with their specific supplier.

How does it work?

The Wait Time system is ultimately run by you, the app user. When you collect your rental using our app, you are given the option to add your own Wait Time, these wait times are collected by our app which then displays the average time of collection at that location with that supplier.

Why are you telling us this now?

The reason I mention this is we have just had our first set of results back which I thought I’d share. A lot of the wait times were provided from collection at Orlando International Airport and Los Angeles Airport.

  • Collection with Dollar from Los Angeles Airport – 15 mins
  • Collection with Alamo from Orlando International Airport – 20 mins
  • Collection with Dollar Orlando International Airport – 30 mins
  • Collection with Dollar from Tampa International Airport – 10 mins
  • Collection with Alamo from Maui Airport – 15 mins
  • Collection with Alamo from San Francisco Airport – 10 mins

So get involved with the new Wait Time feature and add your own time by downloading our app from Itunes – http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/usrentacar/id427152889?mt=8&ls=1#

I think you’ll agree this is a great offer and one to be taken full advantage of.

New York City regains Car Hire USA top spot

Hi All,

New York City has finally reclaim the U.S. holiday top spot for the first time since 1990.

Although it was forecast that visitors would fall by 10% last year they actually only fell by 3% to 46.7 Million, which keeps the big apple on course to hit 50 million visitors by 2012.

NYC was also first for international visitors with 8.6 million visiting, Los Angeles came in 2nd.

Orlando was second in overal visits and surprisingly 3rd in international visitors.

Have you been to NYC, what were your thoughts and opinions on the U.S.’s most popular city?
