With the Covid -19 Pandemic, the way we travel, and the premium we place on the safety of our loved ones, has been radically changed.
Colleagues who operate car rental companies in other countries have reported to us that demand for car rental coming out of the COVID lockdown has never been stronger. As governmental restrictions placed on travel were loosened, a flood of pent up customer demand nearly overwhelmed supply.
Those new customers stopped taking trains, buses, and planes which they previously preferred, and were turning to rental cars to travel and visit family and friends.
Think about it - in a train, plane, or bus, you are locked in a cabin with strangers, with no control over who is in that space with you.
