OpTrip, Inc. has launched a next-generation car rental search engine, twice as fast as any of the leading travel websites, and significantly more likely to find the lowest rate in the market. In a random sampling of 50 different car rentals at 10 major US airports, OpTrip found the best price more than 85% of the time, compared with 36% by Kayak, 24% by Expedia and 20% by Orbitz and Travelocity. Overall, OpTrip's average prices were 20-25% cheaper than Expedia, Orbitz and Travelocity, and 14% cheaper than Kayak, which searches many different sites when generating its best rate. In several cases, OpTrip savings exceeded $100.

OpTrip's car rental system is built with user experience in mind. A tremendous amount of engineering work has been put into making the site fast, clear and easy to use. OpTrip's proprietary technology combines comprehensive, lightning-fast backend search mechanism with Web 2.0 and AJAX-based user interface, offering a smooth travel shopping experience that has never been available before.

OpTrip believes in a transparent shopping process. There are never any cancellation fees or penalties associated with car rentals booked through the site. No pre-payment is required, and OpTrip always displays total prices including all taxes prominently, taking the guesswork out of the shopping experience. Travelers are often frustrated by websites advertising pre-tax rates, when taxes and surcharges can sometimes exceed 30% of the quoted price. OpTrip is committed to bringing more transparency to the travel industry.

In addition to car rental search, OpTrip also offers flight/hotel searches and personalized dynamic packages, as well as a "Drive Green" program that allows environmentally-conscious travelers to direct a portion of their spending to environmental groups to offset the carbon footprint for their travel.
