Driveboo AG operates international car rental portals. The company was founded in 2017 in the course of a carve-out of the brand MietwagenCheck from HolidayCheck AG. Driveboo AG’s vision is to provide customers with the easiest and most transparent car rental experience. Driveboo AG is a wholly owned subsidiary of HolidayCheck Group AG. The brand MietwagenCheck has been established in German-speaking countries since 2008. Since 2017, Driveboo AG has also been operating international car rental portals under the Driveboo brand in Europe, the USA and Latin America. The portals of Driveboo AG compare worldwide all offers of well-known partners like Avis, Europcar, Hertz, Alamo, Natinal and Enterprise, or also of rental car brokers like SunnyCars, Auto Europe, Tui Cars, Drive FTI, Cardelmar and Rentalcars.com. In addition to the prices the portals also compare insurance services and inclusive services of the offers, such as “best fuel regulation” or “unlimited mileage”. This protects the customer from unwanted or hidden costs.
