Advantage Extends Online Network with Metasearch

SAN ANTONIO, Texas --- Advantage Rent-A-Car has partnered with online metasearch sites Sidestep, Mobissimo and Kayak. The travel-booking Web sites offer customer pricing by searching for pricing directly from a vendor’s site.

"The travel industry continues to experience a tremendous growth in online reservations," said Monte Ramey, director of sales and marketing for Advantage. "Metasearch is the newest search and pricing model available to online customers. It provides a viable method to search multiple vendor sites all at the same time."

Metasearch sites allow customers to search by a variety of vehicle options including, air conditioning, automatic transmission or unlimited mileage in multiple car categories.
