What Are the Expectations for the World and Turkey After the Coronavirus Outbreak? Economy and Daily Rental Sector in the Short and Medium Term.
We are witnessing the beginning of a new era together. All of humanity is facing a health crisis, which is very different from the problems we face in the modern world. We're just trying to figure it out and make sense of it. We believe that we will overcome it by becoming different. We need some time. Of course, all our needs and consumption habits will change. We see that there will be severe leaps in the coming period related to new technologies. We hope that we, as a nation, will develop these technologies.
We see that the economic effects of the pandemic are still ongoing even after the vaccine was ıntroduced earlier this year. It is now certain that we will learn how to live with the current COVID-19 global pandemic. As a nation, we are used to economic crises. We believe that this crisis will provide us with more significant opportunities. We hope that there will be no closures and no travel restrictions that will affect the economy.
We think that the use of individual vehicles, rather than public transport, will increase. We see that there will be more and more trends towards daily car rental. Advances in technology and software will speed up this process by making it easier to access daily car rental and hourly rental services. The coming period will provide opportunities to implement new ideas in the daily car rental service, and companies that correctly analyze the needs of consumers will prevail.

What Do Customers Need to Pay Attention to Have a Healthy and Enjoyable Daily Rental Experience?
Naturally, the hygiene expectations of customers have increased. It has become essential to carry out both visual cleaning of vehicles and disinfection against bacteria and viruses. Customers should check both the internal and external cleanliness of the car, making sure that the car is disinfected. It will be better for them to prefer companies that promise to take care of customer health. The health of our colleagues is also directly related to this. Customers should not rent a car from companies that do not take the necessary measures for the health of their employees and do not provide the required equipment. This way, rental car companies will pay enough attention to hygiene.

Changes in Customers' Demands and Differences in their Habits in the Daily Rental Car Sector After the Coronavirus Outbreak.
Customers' expectations have changed in the rental car business and all service purchases. Customers who previously questioned the size of the vehicle's luggage, mileage, model, year, fuel, and gear options, now started to pay more attention to the hygiene and cleanliness of the car. People used rental cars in the past mainly for holiday and business trips. However, with the pandemic, they have started to use rental cars for all their transportation needs to avoid public transport. In this context, the importance of the daily rental car in city offices will continue to increase.
Daily Rental Will Become Widespread in Our Country After the Coronavirus Pandemic
Although it depends a little on economic indicators, the rental car business will become more widespread among all income groups with the increase in national income per capita in Turkey. With the increased use of Rental cars, prices can remain low, making them available for everyone. There might also be hourly rental options and different business models arising from the ever-changing customer needs.
Increases in the tax rates in our country and the prices of new and used cars will reduce the tendency to purchase and increase the demand for daily rental cars. Currently, car prices are almost on the level of some entry-level houses, making them difficult to afford. We think that individuals who prefer to rent a house rather than buy it will be likely also to rent a car daily. It seems that the behavior of avoiding public transportation due to the coronavirus has increased daily rental requests. The important thing is whether this behavior pattern will continue after the vaccine has become widespread.
