2020 was one of the most challenging years for the car rental industry since the financial recession in 2008. The COVID-19 pandemic wiped approximately US$50 billion off the total market value as countries across all six continents tackled the virus, imposed lockdowns and introduced social distancing measures. The car rental industry needed to adapt quickly by changing operational strategy, implementing safety protocols and more rigorous sanitation methods. These changes have resulted in less face-to-face contact between customer and supplier, accelerating online booking trends globally. The financial impact of the pandemic on these businesses cannot be underestimated, with many top car rental firms reporting significant drops in revenue, typically reporting 40% drops or more.
