Rentalcars.com was initially founded as TravelJigSaw by Greg and Nicola Willis in 2004. This couple from England realized that online travel booking was the wave of the future.
Booking.com, which belongs to the Priceline Group, acquired the company in 2010 and changed its name to RentalCars.com.
The platform compares rental car prices from most major companies, such as Hertz, National, Avis, Alamo, and Dollar Rent a Car. The company states that reservations can be canceled up to 48 hours without penalty and that they will price match if you should find a lower price elsewhere.
The car rental comparison platform market is expected to record massive growth in the next 5 years.
RentalCars.Com maintains a corporate office in Norwalk, Connecticut.
