releases Facebook car hire search app releases Facebook car hire search app

In more than 15,000 global locations Facebook users can now use the latest search facility by the UK’s leading car hire comparator

16 May 2011 – Leading car hire price comparison site has announced the launch of a new Facebook page with its very own Facebook application that allows customers to compare car hire deals in more than 15,000 locations.

The app was developed by the site’s in-house developers and enables customers using the currencies – GB£, US$, AUS$ and Euros to find prices, availability and vehicles in their specified location.

The application cleverly pre-fills the fields with the customer’s details such as country of origin, age and email address, which makes it much more convenient. The details can be amended to create a more unique search, if needed.

“With Facebook being the most popular social media site, our Facebook app was a natural progression for our company”, said Gareth Robinson from “We wanted to ensure that our customers would have a pleasant experience when using it and as people use Facebook to find out where they next want to go to on holiday, it seemed a great idea.


“Our research and development of the app has ensured that it works perfectly and the response from our customers is excellent. They stay on the Facebook page too, so their online experience isn’t disrupted and it means they can benefit from finding the latest deals more easily.”

Using customers can join the Facebook application and only be taken to the hire car comparison site once they are ready to go through with their booking.

The car hire comparison site,, searches 50 suppliers in more than 15,000 locations around the world. The hire car suppliers include Sixt, Auto Europe, Holiday Autos, Budget and Alamo. Find out more at
