These car rental services are provided by agencies that purchase several fleet vehicles and rent them to customers for a fee. Nowadays, individuals prefer to hire a car on rent as it is a more cost-effective alternative than owning a vehicle and offers freedom of movement and low-cost traveling. Some rental cars are also equipped with entertainment systems, global positioning systems (GPS), and Wi-Fi networks.
