CarTrawler Opens Source for iPhone App

CarTrawler, a provider of car rental distribution systems to the travel industry worldwide, has released the source code to their car rental app for the iPhone. Travel businesses will be able to customize the app and re-release it as their own product on the App Store.

The CarTrawler car rental app offers the user mobile access to the largest selection of car rental from more than 550 leading and independent car rental suppliers in 175 countries, 30,000 city and airport locations, and 30 languages — quoting in multiple currencies. Special features include GPS mapping and international call support.

By releasing the app source code free of charge, partners can integrate a “ready to go” car rental facility, saving themselves the cost and time required to develop their own app.

 “The release of our car rental app source code will enable companies to maximize ancillary revenues by meeting that demand with a fully integrated system from a trusted source,” said Bobby Healy, CTO CarTrawler, in a prepared statement. “Our mobile platform connects you with the same technology that we supply to some of the biggest airlines, hotel groups and travel service providers in the world. Instead of investing time and money creating your own app, you can now take what we do best, enabling you to concentrate on what you do best.”
