The UK car rental market is booming.
According to the UK-based car rental agency Car2go, which tracks the industry, car rental revenues grew by over 10% in 2016, according to a recent report by IHS Automotive.
The firm estimates that the UK has more than 2,000 rental car service providers that have been around since 2007, with over 8,000 drivers.
Car2Go’s figures are based on data from data provider iBuyFast, and show that the industry has seen strong growth.
Car rental revenues are up nearly 50% from 2015, while rental car revenue increased over 60%.
The UK rental car market is now valued at nearly £1.5 billion ($2.8 billion), according to the report.
“It’s just insane,” said Car2gocare’s Paul Leff, who works in the industry.
“We’re at a tipping point now in the car rental industry.
It’s just getting bigger every year.”
Car2Gocare says that the growth is partly driven by the rise of digital car sharing services like Uber and Lyft.
Leff says that these services are increasing the number of drivers in the market, which is driving more and more rental cars.
“In the past, rental car companies were like big corporations, with lots of offices,” Leff said.
“They had to keep employees on site, and it’s no longer the case anymore.
Now, you’re not hiring anyone who’s been on the road for a year.
Now you have a whole new crop of people who are coming in and trying to figure out what’s going on and what they want to do.
It gives you an opportunity to expand your workforce and bring in new talent.”
Leff thinks that more and better car sharing is going to come to the rental car industry.
The sector is also growing rapidly, especially in London.
“London has become a major rental market,” LeFF said.
“[The rental car company] is growing faster than in the UK.
It grew in London by a lot, but it grew much faster in the US, so it’s still growing in the EU.
In Europe, it’s not growing as much.
But it’s growing faster.
And in London, it was booming.”
LeFF believes that the rental companies are taking advantage of the car sharing boom in order to keep their drivers happy.
“If you look at the number and types of rental cars that people are taking, the rental cars are going to be a much bigger part of the UK rental market in the future,” he said.
Leef says that while the industry is growing, it needs to do a better job of managing its drivers.
“One thing that I think the rental industry is doing right now is not giving enough care to its drivers,” he added.
“You have drivers who are on a lot of drugs, who have been drinking, who don’t have enough money for a car.
You’ve got drivers who have no cars, and they’re driving around in their cars and doing drugs and drinking and all of the other stuff that’s going to get you into a lot more trouble.”
The problem, Leff believes, is that these drivers are leaving the industry because they don’t get enough money from their rental car deal.
“There’s a lot that goes into getting a car,” he explained.
“A lot of times, they’ll be driving around for a few hours, then they’ll have to get back to their home base.
They’re really driving around and not doing their jobs properly, and if you’re an independent, you have to go home and look after your own family and yourself.”
For Leff and other Car2GO clients, it can be hard to find a good rental car.
“I’ve had a lot [of renters] come in and say they didn’t have money for their car and they were very disappointed with it,” Leef said.
The UK’s rental car drivers are the biggest drivers in Britain, according in Car2’s figures, but Leff acknowledges that there are some drivers in London that he thinks are more professional.
“Most of them are actually very good people,” he told Fox News.
“Some are good at their job, but some of them might be just as bad at their car as they are at their jobs.”
Car 2gocares numbers also show that car rental drivers are not getting the care they deserve.
LeFF told Fox that he believes that car sharing has to be the industry standard.
“The cars have to be safe, the drivers have to have good working conditions, and the companies have to give the drivers the best care they can,” he suggested.
“So there needs to be more standards that we can expect in terms of safety.”
For some, it seems that the trend is continuing.
“When I was growing up, the car was the only thing that mattered in our house,” said Leff.
“My parents would
