ON FAST2DRIVE

YOU CAN

  • Search from more than a hundred rental car o ers available on dozens of websites
  • Compare different offers and filters them by: criterion, deposit, rental length, mileage, services…
  • Access, with just one click, to the original site where the offer has been published in order to gain more information or to finalize the car rental contract.

YOU CANNOT

  • Demand an estimate of costs. Fast2Drive is not a broker.
  • Change the offers on Fast2Drive by adding or removing services and car accessories. In order to make modi cations, it is necessary to contact the company that published the original o er on their website.
  • Filter by size engine, equipment and accessories because, often, rental dealer publish general offers, without listing this type of information. Therefore, it’s not possible for Fast2Drive to manage this kind of filters.

TECHNOLOGY

Accurate technical choices have made it possible to create an efficient and fast aggregation site. Fast2Drive’s front-end uses AngularJS, a stable and tested framework, and a combination of plugins to make it easier and faster to implement new features, manage the User Experience and application’s localization.

The REST service layer is based on AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda in JavaScript language to allow high scalability. While the guarantee of stability and performance have made the choice to fall on the PostgreSQL database engine.

Gli scraper che si occupano di reperire i dati delle offerte sono stati realizzati in Python e registrano le informazioni raccolte su bucket AWS S3. Il sistema di trigger di AWS S3 permette di gestire in maniera asincrona la scrittura dei dati nel database.

Scrapers that get the offers’ data have been created in Python and they register information collected on AWS S3 buckets. The AWS S3 triggering system allows to manage asynchronously the writing of data in the database.
