App Books Car and Driver Service in China

New reservation capabilities on National Car Rental’s website and app streamline private transportation solutions in this complex destination

National Car Rental is offering an enhanced Car and Driver service that makes visiting China more efficient and convenient. Customers can now book transportation – including a car and professional driver – directly through National Car Rental’s website and mobile app.

Traveling through China presents unique challenges for visitors due to regulations restricting tourists from renting cars or driving in the country without a temporary permit issued by the Chinese government. With National’s Car and Driver service, travelers can now easily reserve a vehicle, along with the services of a professional driver to provide transportation for full- or half-day rentals, allowing the freedom and convenience to expertly navigate an unfamiliar city with ease.

“From securing dependable transportation to navigating local destinations, travel in China can present unique hurdles for international visitors,” said Frank Thurman, vice president of marketing for National. “With this in mind, National designed the Car and Driver service to provide seamless access to convenient transportation options, enabling travelers to stay focused on what’s most important – their experience.”

National Car and Driver offers a variety of rental options for this service, including “Point-to-Point” or “Hourly” reservations. By opting for the Point-to-Point option, customers can preschedule up to seven pick-up and drop-off locations to efficiently juggle multiple meetings and engagements. Alternatively, selecting the Hourly option provides travelers the freedom and flexibility to build their itinerary in real-time as their day unfolds.
