Top 10 takeaways from the International Car Rental Show

The International Car Rental Show (ICRS) is a significant event for the rental car industry—gathering experts, innovators, and professionals to discuss trends, challenges, and solutions in the car rental sphere. This year, our team had the privilege to attend and sponsor the conference. Here's what we learned:


Our 10 learnings from ICRS

  1. Data integration is key: With more and more credit cards removing their auto insurance coverage for their consumers, rental car companies need to be able to verify insurance more often than not. Seamless integration of automated insurance verification into rental car software streamlines operations, enhancing efficiency and accuracy in managing insurance-related processes. 
  2. AI tools matter: Embracing AI tools can allow rental car companies to stay compliant while automating their verification processes to serve more customers, faster.
  3. Manual processes aren’t gone: Many rental car companies are still verifying auto insurance manually by back-and-forth phone calls—this causes delays or even gaps in insurance coverage, leaving rental car agencies vulnerable. Instantaneous verification of insurance coverage is necessary as it enables rental companies to make informed decisions swiftly, reducing these potential liabilities.
  4. Enhanced security protocols: Implementing robust security measures for online data is imperative to safeguard sensitive customer information during the verification process, ensuring data privacy and trust.
  5. Customization is crucial: Tailoring insurance verification solutions to the specific needs of rental car companies and software platforms optimizes functionality and user experience, fostering seamless integration and adoption.
  6. Scalability is top priority: As rental fleets expand, scalable verification solutions accommodate growth without compromising performance, providing flexibility and reliability in operations.
  7. Analytics empower decision-making: Leveraging data analytics within insurance verification systems offers valuable insights into trends, patterns, and risk factors, empowering rental companies to make informed business decisions.
  8. Educating stakeholders is vital: Comprehensive training and support for rental company staff and software users are essential for maximizing the benefits of automated insurance verification, ensuring proficiency and confidence in utilizing the technology.
  9. Adaptability drives innovation: Continuous innovation and adaptation to evolving industry trends and technological advancements are critical for maintaining competitiveness and relevance in the car rental market.
  10. Partnerships foster growth: Collaborating with industry partners, insurers, and technology providers, like MeasureOne, fosters growth, drives innovation and creates value-added solutions to meet the evolving needs of rental car companies and their customers.
