A few short years ago, contactless car rentals were the realm of science fiction. If you wanted a car, you had to fill out and sign half a dozen forms and wait while an agent approved your credit card before you were handed the keys. Even if you booked a car online, you still needed to talk to a person and verify your personal information before you could get behind the wheel. These days, you can rent a car on a mobile app and then use your phone to unlock the vehicle, which is faster and, these days, safer.
