During Busy Holiday Season, Right Car Hire Locates Quality Rental Vehicles When Others Can’t

It’s the Christmas Holidays. You’ve saved all year for the ultimate vacation to visit family during your favorite time of year.

You arrive at Sydney International Airport thinking you will treat yourself and family to a luxury sedan for the long drive ahead. But when you stop at the counter of your favorite rental car company, you learn they don’t have anything even close to what you want.

In fact, this major worldwide rental company doesn’t have much of anything to offer you, that is unless you’re willing to wait a couple of days for a few cars to be returned.

You’re floored. Your jaw drops as you feverishly think what to do next. No problem, you reason. You will simply stop by all the other rental counters and surely somebody will have your luxury sedan.

But things go from bad to worse. The other companies either don’t have many cars or only a few compact models that will force everyone in your family to sit on each others’ laps.

This was the scene commonly experienced this Christmas at many auto rental counters throughout Australia. So what is a traveler to do?

The answer is the web’s popular new online booking site for rental cars. Right Car Hire, at rightcarhire.com.au, can locate the exact automobile you need in any season. Simply use their intelligent search feature to look for cars at all pertinent rental companies.

By digging deep into rental car inventory at all rental companies, Right Car Hire can find a car when nobody else seems to be able to locate one. This applies even at the busiest times of the year – like Christmas in Sydney.

“For the past three months we’ve seen a big increase in people looking for rental cars at the very last minute. Often we are the only site who can find what they’re looking for on very short notice,” said Right Car Hire’s Head of Digital Marketing Louie Ramos.

An example of this was one traveler who looked to Right Car Hire to rent a van for three days recently. She wanted to pick the van up at Sydney International Airport in exactly one hour.

Most rental companies would have chuckled, then demurred at this request. But Right Car Hire’s system sprang into action to insure her van was ready and waiting in less than 60 minutes.

The woman used rightcarhire.com.au to quickly search for her van, located the one she wanted, and picked it up at the airport in exactly one hour.

“Then later that afternoon we received another booking made from our website. This time it was a traveler catching a flight from Sydney the following morning. The rental car was picked up from a suburb in Sydney and dropped off at Sydney International Airport. The cost to the traveler was just $54 AUD, less than $40 USD,” Ramos said.

The Right Car Hire site is fully mobile friendly, making last minute bookings on the run easy and rewarding.

Case Study: A Last-Minute Car Rental Over the Christmas Holiday

When you’re on holiday with a large group of people, booking your accommodations, restaurants and transport as early as possible is always the best way to go.

The Challenge

Unfortunately for our customer, he hadn’t heeded that advice, and found himself in need of a large van for a large group in just one day’s time. He was on a holiday over the busy Christmas season and had a group of touring senior citizens that he needed to move around.

The customer had tried to book a van through several car rental companies in the local area, but no one had anything available. Since it was the holiday season, the companies simply apologized and told the man that there was nothing they could do.

How We Helped

The customer found us through an online directory and promptly gave us a call. We advised him to jump on our website, where he’d be able to find not only the van he so desperately needed, but also a host of deals that would also get him the best price.

After calling around to all of the car rental agencies he could find — and wasting lots of time doing it — the customer spent just a few minutes searching on our site.

Within a very short amount of time, he’d found a car rental company he didn’t know existed and was able to book a van for a very good price.

The End Result

With a group of senior citizens in tow, the customer was extremely stressed to find that he couldn’t find any vans available. We quickly relieved his stress and got him a good deal to boot.  Because our car booking engine compares rates from multiple companies, we can often get customers the cheapest car — and also find rental cars that seem hard to find when booking late.

Booking early is always advisable, but even when you can’t, you can rest assured we’ll do our best to find you the car you need, when you need it most.
