The three emerging market trends driving the global car rental market according to Technavio research analysts are:
- Advent of intermediaries
- Value-for-money car rental services
- Advances in rental process
Advent of intermediaries
Renting a car was a simple task before the advent of the Internet. Booking was done through the telephone, where the customer would call the service provider to book cars and accept the proposed prices. Advantages of many online websites, which are also known as car rental brokers, have established themselves as intermediaries and demand aggregators between the customer and operator. Expedia.com, cartrawler.com, and priceline.com are some of the examples. Customers have the advantage of choosing from the lowest price while renting cars due to the advent of such intermediaries.
“As the segment is highly competitive with prices being the main decision factor, pricing is a major drawback. Brokers are paid through commission, which, from the point of view of the operator, sales through intermediaries and brokers is unfavorable. As the client's point of interaction while deciding to rent is an intermediary, brand differentiation becomes difficult,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on transportation and distribution.
