As its “foreign name” suggests, rent a car is a service that involves renting a car for short or long period, and it originated somewhere in the English-speaking parts of the world, to be more precise – in America. „Rent a car“ in its literal, but practical translation on Serbian language means „Iznajmi automobil“ – provide a vehicle by renting. This bussines, under its name, has developed in our areas and has become popular, so this foreign term become “entrenched”, and all renting companies do not even try to change it. Let us go back now to the history of this business, in order to get closer and to get more details about this subject – a person who is considered to be responsible for the development of the idea of renting a car, as business sphere, is Joe Sanders
This “invention” appeared in Nebraska’s largest city, in Omaha, back in 1916. Yes, it’s a business that has a tradition more than a century. Contrary to the truth, it is widely believed that this is a “relatively young” business – as our people have a tendency to say. Is it because of this foreign term, or because most of them have the impression that the car itself was invented recently? However, this business does have a long history and has found its place in almost all parts of the world. Really quickly rent a car has taken root, and Joe Sanders for just about ten years has expanded his business to 56 different cities. If it is “bugging” you to find out which was the first car which had the honor to start this business, it was Ford Model T. Although Joe was the first who started this whole thing, the very idea is not entirely original; She’s found its origin in the prior ideas when, instead of a car, other “vehicles” such as horses and carriages were rented. The core of this idea goes back to the more distant past, and maybe that’s exactly the reason why the idea is so good, and why rent a car business will be present in the future as well.
