The leaders in the car rental services are expected to retain their competitive advantage over the regional players, by getting involved in the strategic alliances with airlines and hotels. There is an observed high per capita spending on car rental in the developing markets of Brazil, Australia, and India which is mainly due to the lack of availability of an organized public transport network, lower disposable income, and high tourist destinations which ensures that the holiday maker arriving at their destination, requires a rental vehicle. However, domestic tourism need not necessarily lend itself to the demand for car rental. Technological advancements along with the expansion of leading car rental companies in developing regions, such as Asia Pacific and Latin America, would foster demand for car rental services in the coming years. However, low cost public transportation, and volatility in crude oil prices along with increased operational cost are some of the restraints in the global car rental market.
