A car rental company rents out vehicles/automobiles for a specific period of time ranging from a few hours to a few months for an appropriate fee. The service is often organized across various local branches, facilitating customers to return the vehicle in a location of their convenience. In addition, car rental services are often complemented by websites, allowing online reservations and car rental offices are primarily located near airports or busy city areas. Car rental agencies serve people whose cars are temporarily out of service or the ones who do not have access to their vehicles, for example owners of damaged vehicles who are awaiting insurance or repair compensation, or travelers from outside the town. Alongside the basic rental of a vehicle, car rental agencies typically offer extra services, such as GPS navigation systems, insurance and entertainment systems.
