The Road Back to Rental Cars


It has been remarkable to see an entire industry change its operations due to a pandemic and one thing is certain — the rental car business will never be the same.

Before COVID-19, travelers would walk into crowded car rental agencies and wait in long lines. The vehicles were expensive to rent and cleanliness was sometimes hit or miss.

What a difference twelve months can make.

Today, rental stores are quiet, the employees are wearing masks and gloves, and the vehicles are in a state of pristine cleanliness.

Here is what you need to know as a consumer that will help guide your decisions on how to travel in the coming months:

  • Touchless rental processes are upping the game and more and more rental agencies are offering that experience to consumers.
  • Rental car companies are seeing a dramatic shift from business renters to leisure renters. Consumers, still wary of air travel, are rushing to rent vehicles for upcoming summer road trips. This trend has actually led to an uptick of cars that have odor and cleanliness issues upon their return to the rental company.
  • More and more are deciding to rent vehicles this year, but the demand is still below 2019 levels.
  • Stock is low, so even if you have already reserved a vehicle, the rental company may run out of vehicles. It is wise to plan ahead.

Fortunately, there is a company that stands prepared to offer its sanitizing solution to the rental industry. That company is NuVinAir.

NuVinAir can satisfy the rising expectations of consumers that vehicles be clean and sanitized before purchase or rental.

To give their customers the peace of mind that their vehicles have been disinfected and cleaned with the safest and most advanced solutions in the industry, rental agencies and dealers are flocking to NuVinAir Global’s newest product—ReKlenz-X.  This EPA-approved, eco-friendly disinfectant kills 99.9% of germs, bacteria, and viruses without compromising a vehicle’s interior. The Dallas-based company, which offers a “Total Health” suite of proprietary vehicle-cleanliness solutions and hygienic consulting for automotive business, says ReKlenz-X is an oxygen-rich formula that quickly kills bacteria and viruses by destroying their cell walls through a process called oxidation. The product contains no harsh chemicals, sticky residue, or dangerous volatile organic compounds, resulting in a clean and disinfected vehicle with no chemical smell.
