Those interested in renting a car can find in Localiza, Movida and Hertz Rent-a-Car apps, for example, useful services for the task. Available on Android or iPhone (iOS) phones, free platforms promise to optimize customer time by allowing the entire procedure to be virtual. The software is useful for those who prefer this kind of transportation, which can be booked through specialized rental companies or directly with car owners.
This type of service is usually more common when traveling, when tourists want to explore more distant or restricted access. A direct competitor to this system is the offering of private drivers such as Uber and 99 or alternative transportation in the case of Grin and Yellow shared bicycles and scooters. The method of use is usually more affordable and meets the needs of users, especially when traveling in large cities.
