As of July 1, the Carla app is now available on Google Play for Android smartphone users.

Launched on Apple’s App Store in January, Carla’s mobile app recommends personalized car rentals for users based on their travel needs.

The Carla app doesn’t feature the tabular format of cars listed one after another. Instead, the app allows users to see one car at a time, according to the company.

After receiving several emails asking for the Android version of Carla, Kasaba Labs decided to develop a Carla app for the Android platform.

Carla is available in 20,000 locations and 150 countries worldwide. Users can compare rental cars from 850 companies, including major car rental companies such as Avis, Budget, Enterprise, National, Sixt, Hertz, Alamo, Thrifty, and Europcar. It also offers several car makes and models.

The app provides best price/performance options, and it allows users to view upcoming and past trips, says the company.
