Our online brand reflects our personality and was clearly favored by the judging panel," said Phil Partridge, marketing director of Rhinocarhire.com, who collected the award at the ceremony.

"We have all worked hard behind the scenes to bring a unique offering to the car hire customer. In a very competitive market we needed an edge to stand out from the crowd, an online presence and personality, and that's what we have delivered. Our use of social media is really taking off right now and it's an exciting time for the business, we continue to develop the Web site and the service we provide for our customers and plan to stay top of the car hire Web site ladder for a long time to come," he added.
