You've always talked about it, but now you've finally done it: you booked your dream vacation. You’ve spent months planning, orchestrating every miniscule detail, but as you touch down, it hits you: you have no way of getting from the airport to your hotel. You have no nearby friends or relatives to fetch you, and taking a taxi means putting a serious dent in your budget. Is your getaway over before it even started? Not to worry. A new feature within the GateGuru app, compatible with Apple and Android devices, ensures a smooth, easy ride.

The company's partnership with the Avis-Budget Group is a big step in fulfilling GateGuru's mission to reinvent travel. The latest version of the app, released in October, assists travelers in booking last-minute car rentals. Best of all, working directly with a single rental company allows GateGuru to offer the lowest available pricing. Users can get between 5 and 25 percent knocked off the price, with discounts increasing the closer the reservation is made to the day of travel. The company’s chief executive and co-founder Dan Gellert said the initiative was a result of, “thinking through the current airport rental car experience.”

The venture into car rentals is new terrain for the app. Gate Guru efficiently updates users on personal travel information – weather, flight delays, departure times, etc. –  as well as listing nearby amenities the airport has to offer. Schlepping through airports is a necessary evil of air travel, and hubs around the world showcase a plethora of entertainment for wayward travelers – duty-free shops, elegant lounges, and even arcades and play areas for the younger set. Fliers looking to kill a few hours without wasting a moment need look no further than Gate Guru.

While Gate Guru may not alleviate common airport gripes – long lines, screaming babies, lost luggage, the list goes on – at the very least, it can help make your airport experience, dare we say, fun.
