CarTrawler, a global B2B provider of car rental and mobility solutions, and Uber have expanded their partnership with the launch of Uber Rent in the U.K., following a successful trial in 2020.
Powered by CarTrawler’s technology, Uber Rent allows U.K. Uber app users to select and rent cars. Users will be able to rent locally in the U.K. as well as internationally in Spain, Portugal, Italy, the U.S., and Switzerland. Users select and book their rental car on the app and pick up at one of the hundreds of participating locations on their chosen date.
“CarTrawler are excited to expand our partnership with Uber to power car rental for Uber Rent in the U.K.,” said Peter O’Donovan, CarTrawler’s chief operating officer. “We enable our partners to become travel one-stop shops through innovative technology, the widest customer choice, and compelling loyalty solutions. This closely aligns with Uber and their goals to become the ultimate travel app through offering the broadest range of travel options coupled with a best-in-class customer experience.”
“The U.K. boasts one of the largest rental markets globally,” said Andrew Brem, general manager at Uber. “At Uber we’re growing our business to become the ultimate travel app, and in the U.K. that means providing a best-in-class rental experience for our users.”
