Why we created Simplybook
Simplybook was born out of our own experience as car rental customers trying to book a holiday car online in Greece.
We found out that this can be difficult and confusing.
While trying to support small and medium local car rental companies we found out that most of them did not have a direct booking system on their websites (if they actually had one). We had to email the car rental company with our request and wait for some very busy employees in the hot high season days of August to answer back to us.
If we were not determined to rent a car from a local small rental we would have gone for the cheaper, faster and frankly, the more tempting way.
Then there was the car rental insurance nightmare and the traps hidden at the fine print of car hire contracts.
And this does not concern only small car rental companies but the large ones too. You may think that you know what you are insured for, but as we found out, this is rarely the case. Car rental insurances were designed to cover the car rental companies for car theft or damage. They were not meant to cover you for smaller and much more common accidents which are more likely to happen when you rent a car, like a broken window or headlight, or even a flat tire.
We found this out the hard way. You don’t have to.
Simplybook brings to you car excess insurance policies which are cheaper and safer, so you can feel safer and relaxed while driving your holiday car.
