About Car Rental Gateway in Tartu, Estonia
Car Rental Gateway is the most versatile car rental distribution ecosystem.
It is a B2B platform that connects car rental distributors and suppliers. The platform operates on a SaaS model, making setup fast and easy. This means instant technological capability to directly connect to over 100 online car rental suppliers. We have the widest selection of car rental suppliers, from the largest global brands to top regional and local car rental companies. In addition to connectivity, we offer up to date unified multi-lingual supplier content and support multiple currencies and payment methods.
We are strictly a platform provider and offer all the technological capability needed to drive a successful car rental distribution business. Our service offers an innovative alternative to GDSs. Unlike service providers like CarTrawler and Carnect, we are not a B2B broker, meaning you are free to build your own client base and use independent customized branding. We do not mediate rates, meaning you can negotiate your deals directly with the car rental companies.
The team behind Car Rental Gateway has been steering e-commerce solutions in car rental brokering for over 15 years. Car Rental Gateway is the third generation of our software and was launched in 2014. The first two generations, called CRBMS (Car Rental Broker Management System) were bespoke systems for car rental brokers. The largest car rental broker in the world, rentalcars.com, is still running on the first generation of our software. Car Rental Gateway is the culmination of our team's experience and thanks to operating on a SaaS model, suitable for a wider audience.
