Vroom Vroom Vroom, an eco-conscious car rental site, announces its official U.S. launch, bringing stateside consumers fast, hassle-free and environmentally friendly car rental booking services.

The new site enables customers to make reservations with all major rental car companies in more than 2,000 U.S. locations, including major airports, city centers, and smaller regional towns -- and boasts the industry’s fastest interface (28.5 seconds to complete a reservation).

Vroom Vroom Vroom is the first car rental site to provide carbon offset credits with each rental, at no cost to the customer. Renters get the benefit of no cancellation restrictions and a lowest price guarantee that offers $10 if a lower rate is found elsewhere.

And one renter each month will get their entire booking free.

An Australian-born brand with success in several countries including Australia, New Zealand, the U.K. and Canada, Vroom Vroom Vroom has established its U.S. headquarters in Las Vegas.

Peter Thornton, CEO of Vroom Vroom Vroom, wants to be known as a “company with a conscience.” Thornton says, “We want people to choose Vroom Vroom Vroom not just because we have the lowest rates, fastest tools and highest level of service, but because we understand their needs and share their values.” offers more than the expected online rental options (price comparisons and vehicle selections like luxury cars, SUVs and convertibles). The site has a “Geek Travel Guide”—a list of 25 Web apps for road-trip planning including maps, travel search engines, resources for business travel and tools for finding parking lots, radio stations and the best gas prices. The site also has travel guides for major U.S. and international cities and “accidental tourist” tips—sightseeing ideas for anyone who finds themselves with extra time in a new place.
