Hi,

I think the template you chose for the site is a bit more suitable for a newspaper or news website, maybe look for something more oriented to tourism, or perhaps more sophisticated.

When in doubt just look at the competition and see what they are doing, sometimes copying concepts is not so bad if it helps you learn

You are using thesis theme! You have made no customization to it and without anything it is looking empty to the eyes. And It does not go with car rental as well. If you use a dark theme for this niche it is very much useful or colorize your blog.

I agree, definately needs more color. Just too plain and I would not stay on the site once I saw home page. Make it more inviting with colors and graphics. There's so much you can do with this "travel" category.

Though a good effort, this page needs more work. It looks underworked and uninspired. Try more interesting fonts or make a catchy banner logo that really slaps viewers in the face (in a good way, that is). Plus, the cityscape graphics don't communicate that this site involves car rentals (plus, are those copywritten images? If you found them on the web, likely they are; you or the company you're working for could pay huge infringement fines). Take some photos of cars in Zaghreb filled with people who radiate euphoria for having rented a car in Zaghreb. Make people want to come back. The visual appeal for this site is lacking, but it's not without hope. Just spruce it up.

hello! it looks basic but it is not a disadvantage. i dont like overloaded sites.
but you have some free space in the right corner. how are going to use it?
i think you should already think about seo.
and the last: i hope you will add some more content

honestly man i can say that your website is too bad to be a online business. No offense at all pal, I'm just thinking that your web is most likely to be a blog and not a commercial web ( i presume you use wordpress engine on that site) so, my suggestion, you take a better engine such as Joomla or Drupal. They provide a lot of better template that suits to your niche dude. thanks.

I know it's a work in progress. The first thing that came to mind when I looked at it was...What is the purpose of this site? I know...Car Rental. I didn't get it though because the site design made me think I had jumped into a sub-page article about car rental, which I only figured out after my eyes had processed the pics. Point is that most people's eyes will be drawn to the color of the pics given the fact that your site is basically black and white. I'd at least go with a black header and white text. At that point at least your biz title will pop out. Keep working on it though. It'll shape up.

Yes, your site title is "car rental", but why most of your post are out of topics~~~

If you just build it for SEO, it's OK

but this site is your main business site, i think you should do more work on it!!!

as some mentioned you're using the thesis theme
but that's not much of a problem if you would only take the time to customize it

it's not that hard
I would start with a header and fill the right column
it looks a bit drab and empty right now

there's a fine line between minimalism and boring
i think yours is a bit boring, lifeless
maybe it just needs some color
pictures

i would lose the entry snippets that make it look like a magazine theme
maybe stick to showing x# of featured posts instead?

Ok, if I'm going to Croatia today and want to rent a car, who should I call or email?

I can't find any contact details. Try to add more features in the blog to show that there are actually humans behind and not some faceless page.

I mean, apart from the horse riding girl and chefs.
