Transportation is changing. It’s time for rental car companies to change, too.
More than ever before, today’s consumers rely on their smartphones to navigate their busy lives. There’s an app for everything, including on-demand transportation. And while traditional car rentals may continue to hold steady in terms of transactions and revenue, we are beginning to see the transition from rental services to new mobility services—and with it, the erosion of the core vehicle rental business.
What impact will this transition have on rental car companies? With the near-ubiquitous availability of ridesharing services, why would an air traveler bother with a shuttle to a remote car rental lot? Why wouldn’t they have a driver pick them up at the curb and deliver them straight to their destination—skipping navigation and driving hassles altogether? Carsharing is also an attractive option. With vehicles conveniently parked in residential neighborhoods and urban areas, carsharing services can meet the demand for by-the-minute or by-the-mile transportation, rather than daily rentals.
Ready to compete in the new era of on-demand transportation? With a ready fleet of vehicles and well-established fleet management expertise, car rental companies are in an excellent position to innovate with new mobility service models—for example, offering the convenience of ridesharing with counterless transactions and valet-style delivery. All that’s missing is a platform to run them.
