You know all too well the frustrations of hiring a car. After hours trawling the web for deals, you arrive at your holiday destination and discover that the rental desk is actually outside the airport terminal, 10 minutes’ walk down the road.

After much wrangling, trying to avoid paying for extras, finally you get your car. And it’s not what you thought you had paid for.

“It’s such a long and painful process,” acknowledges Paris-based Karim Kaddoura, cofounder of Virtuo, an entirely app-based car rental service that aims to completely overhaul the car hire industry. “You always end up waiting an hour-and-a-half to get the keys. You have to sign paperwork that is very imprecise and, very much the biggest frustration of car rental, you thought you had rented a Fiat 500 but you’ve ended up with a van. It’s terrible.”
