Following the success of its desktop car hire search tool, Skyscanner has launched its new car hire app, giving travellers on the go the opportunity to compare prices from leading car hire providers at airports around the world.
Travellers using the app can filter by class, features and transmission and have the opportunity to pick and choose their favourite car hire providers or hide results from their least favourite. Once a user selects the best car option, Skyscanner transfers them directly to the rental company to complete the booking.
The new car hire app follows the success of the Skyscanner flight search app, which has been downloaded 25m times. The new Skyscanner car hire search is completely free to use and the app, which is available for iPhone, iPad and Android devices is free to download.
The introduction of its own car hire search tool for desktop and mobile is the first step in Skyscanner’s move towards a fully comprehensive travel search website.
Skyscanner’s Mary Porter comments, "For many travellers flights and car hire go hand in hand, so it was a natural progression for us to meet this demand by adding our own car hire search functionality to our site. With mobile now accounting for more than half of our overall traffic, we expect the new car hire search app to prove very popular.”
