Last month we discussed the Rate Uprising for rental car in Florida, in an effort by car rental companies to maintain availability. And, those rates did move high, some reports indicated that IF AVAILABLE compact cars were being offered as high as $300/day.
It is understood that travel conditions and country restrictions do not provide the confidence to book early but it is highly recommended to advise your clients to do so if you would like to get a reasonable rate and most important get availability.
All platforms powered by ZimpleTECH, offer the option to book and leave the reservation pending for prepayment, up to 3 days prior to arrival. OR, in some, you have the option to book a Pay at the Counter reservation.
In addition to the normal length of time that takes from the fleet order to the delivery, it is reported that the shortage of worldwide electronic chips is also restricting car manufacturers. Therefore, the limited availability we experienced during the Easter Holiday will continue to several months. Especially during weekends and holidays.
