With over 3 billion people using the internet worldwide, today’s economy has become largely digital. Having a strong online presence, such as a company website or active social media account, is now integral to the success of businesses in most industries. It can speak to the legitimacy of a brand, as well its regard for its consumers.
With the average user spending 50 minutes a day on Facebook, the platform has become a popular marketing tool. Businesses can maximize their potential by establishing an online ordering system within the platform. A popular option in the car rental industry is the use of a chatbot, which allows car rental companies to target customers who prefer booking vehicles online over in-store or through the phone, often because it suits their fast-paced lifestyle.
Reserving vehicles via a customer service representative over-the-phone or in-store can be inefficient. You aren’t always able to provide service available all around the clock, a busy day can result in long wait times for service and miscommunication is inevitable.
Developers at Navotar, the leading car rental management solution, have come up with their own fast, flawless, and innovative live chat solution that doesn’t require a customer service representative behind the screen. Navotar’s chatbot uses the latest AI technology to facilitate car rental bookings through Facebook messenger or your website, allowing you to spend less time taking orders and have your business running at all times. Booking through chatbot takes less than 5 minutes and involves only a few essential short questions including date and time, pick-up and drop-off location(s), and customer contact information. Customers simply have to choose from options integrated within the bot, and then their booking will be sent directly to your rental management system. Bookings are updated in real-time, reducing the occurrence of double booking.
Chatbot serves to reduce your workload, and ultimately improve the efficiency of your business. With perks like faster booking times, 24/7 service availability, and a wide-ranging customer outreach, why not integrate Navotar’s chatbot in your online presence?
Create a business profile
Keep your DMs open
Consumers are drawn to entertaining, and most importantly, active accounts. Posting consistently about exciting new products and services will keep followers engaged and aware of your brand. And if you’re up for it, posting the behind-the-scenes of your operations can improve your reputation as a business, showing that you are transparent and passionate about serving your clients. On Snapchat this is best achieved through Snapchat stories, and on Instagram, through Instagram stories, livestreams, and posts.
Have regular giveaways
One of the best ways to attract users to your profile, and get more followers, is to hold regular giveaways. These giveaways don’t need to be extravagant vacations to the tropics, but they should be substantial enough to get people excited. A great way to promote your business through a giveaway is to offer free/discounted services from your business, such as a free rental car for 24 hours. On Instagram, you can ask users to follow you, mention several friends in a comment and get them to follow as well, make them post/stories tagging your company, repost your posts, in order to qualify to win. This will bring you more followers, more engagement, and hopefully, more customers!

Car insurance can be hefty monthly bill that very well may never serve its intended purpose to you. However, insuring your vehicle before getting onto the road is part of your responsibility as a car renter. In the event of an accident, you could be either at-fault or the injured party. Depending on which insurance company and plan you go with, car insurance can provide relief by covering the costs of damage. Seeing as each insurance company’s plans vary, here are 5 key questions you should be asking yourself in order to select the best plan for you.
Depending on the region in which you live, there may be a mandatory level of coverage all drivers must take on. Other coverage types to consider, include Collision Insurance and Comprehensive Insurance. Collision Insurance covers the cost of vehicle repairs, regardless of who’s at-fault. Comprehensive Insurance covers good for unavoidable circumstances, as it covers repair costs associated with instances like vandalism or parts theft. Both are optional and tend to cover physical damage only. You should also consider Bodily Injury Liability Coverage, Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage, and Personal Injury Protection.
The deductible amount is how much you owe for repairs in the case of an accident. While it’s typically a small portion of the entire repair cost, you should consider your ability to pay the deductible when choosing a plan. Generally, low-cost insurance plans come with higher deductibles, and vice-versa.
Make it a point to clarify who is covered under any plan, so you can loan your car to your family without hesitation.
Understand your insurance company’s rules and protocol for reporting an accident, so you’re not left without support when you need it. For example, ‘Is there a 24-hour window within which you must file a claim?’
Life happens, and you may find yourself at-fault in an accident or with an officer. The effect of a claim or traffic ticket on your insurance premiums can vary, but it’s important that you confirm exactly how high your premiums could get. Sometimes, higher insurance rates come with more leniency, while lower insurance rates may skyrocket in the case of a claim or ticket.
