Travelocity Launches Online Local Car Rental Site

has added a comprehensive listing of neighborhood car rental locations and one-way car rental booking options between neighborhood and airport locations. “Local car rentals are the fastest growing segment in the rental car industry,” said Tracey Weber, vice president air and car for Travelocity. “More and more travelers are using neighborhood rental car locations to keep mileage low on their vehicles, and the reliance on mass transit in large urban areas has translated into a growing number of city dwellers renting cars for road trips.”

Car rental shoppers now have faster and easier accessibility to more than 20,000 neighborhood and airport locations across the world. Travelocity customers now also have the ability to pick up and drop off a car at different rental locations, even in different states.

“Travelocity has a strong history of innovation, and these new car features help ensure we are on the cutting edge of the industry,” Weber said. “Our goal is to be an advocate for our members by giving them straightforward and competitive pricing and the best choices when looking for car rentals to meet their specific needs. With these new features, we feel we have taken another giant step toward achieving this goal.”
