A genuine car fanatic does not miss a chance to drive a European automotive piece of art, such as a Ferrari, Lamborghini or Porsche. The choice of renting and driving one is naturally wider in Europe and should definitely be on anyone’s checklist when visiting the old continent.
But renting a sports or luxury car in Europe can be a true hassle. The luxury car hire market is quite hectic there, with a lot of players and not much information when it comes to their online presence. Countless internet searches, prolonged emailing and questionable broker agencies are certainly not a plus to the overall experience.
“Booking.com for luxury cars”
Bringing known marketplace principles to the luxury car rental industry is the core idea behind Lurento. This easy to use and secure web platform brings local companies and world travelers into one place. Similar to other booking platforms, Lurento provides real-time search and pricing, followed by credible information about each vehicle listed.
In just a couple of months over 30 companies joined the marketplace, making their offer unparalleled in the number of cars and prices. Lurento currently covers Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Dubai and is expanding into Spain, France and UK.
Changing the game
The disadvantages of local car rental companies are numerous. They can’t reach the wider global clientele due to limited marketing resources and are often exploited by broker agencies. Lurento aims to provide a unique space for them to offer their services, free of charge and on fully transparent terms.
Providing an opportunity to local business to pitch their service and compete on a global market is what will change the industry. The high rates will go down as more players come into the game, hopefully leaving behind the big car rental business and brokers.
Trust and security
Protecting both the car rental companies and clients is the essence of their business. Each company listed on Lurento endures a thorough acceptance process. This includes checking its fleet, defining rental terms and prices, and pre-negotiating a palette of possible additional charges and deposits. The team spends a great deal of time with business owners to ensure high quality service to their customers.
The luxury car hire industry is high-risk market. The cars are often targeted by organized crime groups and protecting a company’s property is a top priority. Lurento shields their providers by running security checks of each client, rejecting any that fail to pass their strict requirements.
What you see is what you get
When someone rents a high-end vehicle they don’t want any car. They want to drive a specific model, from a specific year and with specific features. That is why Lurento goes far and beyond to provide their clients with an outstanding rental experience.
Once you visit the site, simply enter the dates and a location. The search displays a list of available vehicles. After clicking on each car, you get more details about it such as rental costs, security deposit, included kilometers and much more.
