Boasting more than 60 years in the industry and with over 3500 rental locations worldwide, Europcar is a no-brainer when it comes to finding great deals on vehicles. Whether travelling for business or leisure, they have every type of car to meet your requirements, including SUVS, sedans, vans, and trucks. In 2016, it was awarded TripAdvisor Traveller’s Choice for Rental Cars.

 

Without doubt, one of primary reasons I continually resort to Europcar for hiring vehicles is thanks to the excellent rewards scheme it has on offer. By becoming a member of their Privilege Loyalty Programme, you can unlock exclusive benefits, such as priority service, early access, money off coupons, free weekend hires, and complimentary upgrades. Their four tier-level structure – Club, Executive, Elite and Elite VIP – allows customers to increase their rewards based on the number of hires they make.

 

When airlines brought in online check-ins for their flights, they took the stress out of flying by giving people extra time at the airport that would have been spent queuing to receive a boarding pass. For me, this is one of the best features that Europcar has implemented to its own service, allowing its customers to perform an online check-in before getting their car in order to speed up the whole process and provide for a faster pickup. To do so, you simply need to enter your last name and reservation number, before adding the rest of your details.

 

I also particularly like their customer support, which comes in the form of a live online chat service. Contacting customer support, whether it’s a major issue or just a query, can sometimes be a challenge, especially when abroad and fees for making calls are expensive. Therefore, a quick way of communicating with a live agent via an instant messaging service can be a great benefit to a website and ultimately, make managing a booking far less stressful.

 

One drawback that I have found when using Europcar is that to secure the benefits of the Privilege Loyalty Programme, you must make the booking either via the Europcar website or over the phone. That means that if you have come across their service on another platform, then you will not be able to take advantage of their various rewards.

Pros
  • Over 60 years experience in car rental
  • Fast online check-in
  • Live online chat with customer support
  • Beneficial rewards scheme
Cons
  • Strict policy for benefiting from loyalty programme

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
