CarTrawler, a global B2B provider of car rental and mobility solutions, and Uber have expanded their partnership with the launch of Uber Rent in the UK, following a successful trial in 2020.

Powered by technology from CarTrawler, Uber Rent allows UK Uber app users to select and rent cars. Users will be able to rent locally in the UK as well as internationally in Spain, Portugal, Italy, the US and Switzerland. Users select and reserve their rental car on the app and pick it up at one of hundreds of participating locations on their chosen date.

“CarTrawler is delighted to extend its partnership with Uber to power car rental for Uber Rent in the UK,” said Peter O’Donovan, Chief Operating Officer of CarTrawler. “We enable our partners to become one-stop-shops for travel through innovative technology, the broadest customer choice and compelling loyalty solutions. This aligns closely with Uber and its goals of becoming the ultimate travel app by offering the widest range of travel options coupled with a top-notch customer experience.

“The UK has one of the largest rental markets in the world,” said Andrew Brem, chief executive of Uber. “At Uber, we’re growing our business to be the ultimate travel app, and in the UK that means delivering a top-notch rental experience for our users.”
