Something else I've come to realise.
Please anyone using it, it's your own responsibility, I'm not advising nor endorsing, just telling some stories that happened to me.

I came after a week renting through this app to return my car.
I wanted to rent again a car, but there were non.
The rep advised me to extend my current rental.
I asked what it would cost.
The rep told me a rate for yet another week which was lower than I actually paid (probably the nett price, before earning on me).
So I said ok, go ahead.
When I returned yet one week later the car, and I ask how much I owe, I was told 'zero' as its a prepaid rate.
Basically I was able to several times multiply the duration of the rental free of charge.

And you think that's how it works in general/had this more than once?
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

Yes, but the logic says it should (theoretically) work everywhere.

Well who is doing the prepaying? Which company? Cuz they will eventually catch up with you probably. And what country is this in?

I did it in Europe.
When you rent through this app, you mostly prepay.
I'm not sure that there is actually someone paying for it. More like the rental company giving away for free.

I chose Indonesia as county, and dropped over 40% in price.
Not sure if that's only on the European rental I tried....
Worth a try.

Well, do what you have to do, but this app barely takes space (3.5-5mb).
Download an app which deletes old apk files and other junk to liberate space.
If you use WhatsApp get rid of the many clips, and music + pictures sent over.
If you delete my app, the rating will go.

This topic needs to be wikized, to know which country to set for each rental.

It really shud just get its own thread, as OP's intention was to get reviews, not explain the app, or at least switch the thread title now

I had once where chase declined my prepaid rental with rentalcars.com. I told chase to let it through but because chase declined the transaction they had to run it again to go through. I ignored it, forgot about it, made my usual other reservations through other means by multiple companies, which I always do. Came to hertz counter, wanted to go with my reserved car, they tell me I have already a prepaid luxury car reservation :-)
