Three Easy Stages To Booking Car Rental On The New www.budget.co.uk

 The new www.budget.co.uk website allows car rental bookings to be completed simply in just three easy stages. The new-look website has been completely re-designed for ease of use. Navigation is simple and direct -- renters can book value-for-money rentals in minutes. And, if they pre-pay, they can enjoy a further 5% discount on the competitive rate quoted.

Toby Roberts, e-commerce manager, EMEA at Budget Rent a Car said: "The new website really does make booking online easy. Above all, we know people want great value and clear, transparent quotes. We've taken considerable time to ensure the presentation of our quotes is straightforward, clearly detailing what is included in the price. We are also providing even greater value and peace of mind by allowing pre-payment for rentals to be made with an additional 5% discount and guaranteeing vehicle availability."

The new Budget three-step route to instant online rental booking comprises:

Step 1 -- completing the rental requirements page.
Step 2 -- checking the instant quote and advising preferred payment option.
Step 3 -- completing the driver's details and method of payment.

Following Step 3, customers receive confirmation of their reservation on screen and via e-mail within a few minutes. The www.budget.co.uk site also features the latest special offers and has details on special equipment availability, the car and van fleet range, a rapid rental location search plus information on what to expect when collecting a car. Other useful information to be found includes tips on driving abroad, services available to business renters and a helpful online assistant for those unfamiliar with the online booking process.
