The next screen you see will have a list containing the first 5 cars available for your country and dates. Text links at the start of the list will navigate you through all of the car results. Cars are sorted by price and transmission, with the manual transmission cars coming first. Next to the car name there will be a small picture of the car that you can click on to see more detailed information about it. When you find a car you like, you can click on the red 'Select' button to add it to your request. Clicking the select button does not mean you are obligated to rent that car!
