Lightwater, Surrey (PRUnderground) August 11th, 2011
Searching for the right holiday car hire deal just got more convenient thanks to the latest development announced by Carrentals.co.uk. The award-winning price comparator has launched a new app for Android smartphones to make people’s lives even easier.
Carrentals.co.uk has invested time and resources to bring the new app to Android smartphone users, allowing them to search for and reserve car hire whether queuing in the supermarket or sitting in their garden. Users can log on to the web and find the app at www.carrentals.co.uk/about/carrentals-mobile/carrentals-android-app.
Also included in the new Android app is an add-on which sends a reference number straight to the user’s mobile device while copying a paper voucher to their home address too.
Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, comments: “Our goal is to remain at the cutting edge of the market and this new app launch will help our users enjoy added convenience. Being able to compare and book car hire on the move is a nice development for the modern smartphone user.”
Later on this year Carrentals.co.uk plans to launch a new app which is designed uniquely for Apple iPhones as well.
