Rent.it Android App

Rent.it's new app for car hire from Android smartphones

After the success of the first version of its app for mobile devices based on Android, Rent.it, the first Italian car rental broker online, has published on the Play Store the new edition. Developed internally, the app is completely renewed in its graphic form, now much more essential and intuitive, and easy to browse and browse. In the near future Rent.it will release the app also for ios devices (iphone, ipad).

Download and install the Rent.it app for car rental

To download the Rent.it app you can click on the bar at the top of your Android device while browsing the site, or connect to the Google Play Store by following THIS LINK. Once the app is installed, after the classic splash screen you will immediately be shown the booking form. Here you can indicate the pick-up location of the car (you can choose whether to return it to a different location, eg in Milan and return to Rome) and, after entering the dates and times and indicating your age, simply click on the Search button to start searching for cars to rent.

In this screen you can choose the car of your choice by yourself or, by clicking on the "filters" button, you can refine the search without having to scroll through the entire list of cars. The filters allow you to select the cars by type (for example cars with automatic transmission, SUV, Station Wagon, 7 or 9-seater van); to filter suppliers by rating issued by previous customers; to select only the preferred supplier among all those who collaborate with Rent.it (as, for example, Hertz, Maggiore, Sicily by Car, Europcar, Locauto, etc., just to mention the best known); and still numerous other options such as the choice of mileage, limited or unlimited; the fuel policy; the possibility to rent by credit card or, if not in possession, using (if possible in the selected location) debit cards or prepaid cards such as Postepay Evolution or Hype of Banca Sella.

By clicking on "Rental details" instead, you will be shown the search parameters you have entered and you can modify them if necessary.

The car list shows all the characteristics of the chosen car: the category, the sample model, the type of mileage, the deposit that will be blocked on the credit card at the start of the rental, the capacity of luggage and passengers and if availability it is immediate (the booking will be confirmed immediately) or on request (in this case it will be necessary to wait for confirmation from the rental company with which Rent.it collaborates). Once the car has been selected, the following page will show the summary of the car's features and the details of what is included in the rate. Scrolling to the left will show the details of the votes that the rental company has received from customers who have rented at that office previously. Among the required evaluations are the quality / price ratio of the rental, the efficiency of the staff at the counter, the cleaning of the vehicle, and more. Finally, in the last tab, there are the booking conditions and the rental conditions of the supplier where the machine will be picked up. It is very important to read the rental conditions carefully so as to avoid unpleasant discussions at the time of rental. Indeed Rent.it asks that you declare that you have read and understood the conditions before proceeding with the rental. If everything is fine, you can proceed to click on the "Reserve car" button. At this point, if you have not already done so, you will be asked to log in or register with Rent.it. If you already have an account you can enter your e-mail address and password. Otherwise it will be necessary to proceed with the registration of a new customer. In the registration form you will be asked to enter the country of residence and the type of customer (private, company or individual company). Then you will enter your personal data, such as name, surname, email address and address. Once all the details have been entered, Rent.it will send you the password to access your account by e-mail and you can log in. If you are already registered but you have forgotten your password, you can request a new submission in the appropriate section, inserting your email. On the next page you have to enter the data of the main driver of the car. You can choose from those already entered previously, if you have already made reservations (even on the site), or enter a new one. Once you do this you will be offered to purchase the insurance for the reimbursement of the car rental allowances that will allow you, if purchased, to get the reimbursement of all the possible charges that the rental company should make in case of damage or theft of the vehicle. If you intend to buy it you can choose "Proceed with insurance coverage". If you prefer to proceed without insurance you must select "Proceed with basic coverage". In the next screen you will be shown a summary of what you have chosen so far and the details of the costs to proceed with the booking. Before proceeding you must declare that you have read and accepted the privacy conditions and booking and rental conditions, by activating the appropriate switches. Once this is done, you will be transferred to the payment page where you can enter your credit card numbers and complete the reservation. Once the payment is successful, you will be shown the booking summary page. Here you can print the voucher, check the rental conditions or cancel the reservation. In this case, consider that the action is irreversible and the deposit paid for the booking is not generally repayable. If you have made any mistakes, it is better to contact customer support first at 079 0976250 or write to support@rent.it.

Once you have made one or more reservations, these will always be accessible from the app menu on the left of the application. Clicking on the menu you will be shown in fact various options such as the history of your reservations, your data (you can change them), the contacts of the assistance of Rent.it, the various privacy policies and conditions of use of the service, and finally the settings of the app from which you can modify some parameters such as nationality and preference currency.
