Europcar and easyJet have renewed their strategic booking partnership to the end of 2011. The two companies have been exclusive partners since 2003 and in that time have served more than 1.7 million joint customers.
The partnership allows easyJet customers to reserve both their flight and their rental vehicle on the easyJet.com website.
easyJet customers also benefit from preferential rates, guaranteed car availability and the latest model vehicles. Other benefits include free additional driver and upgrades through on-line booking.
Europcar Groupe Chief Operating Officer Rafael Girona said, “Over the years, Europcar and easyJet have developed a mutually beneficial relationship which has brought demonstrable results and value to customers. By providing complimentary services and sharing the same concern for quality service and sustainable development, our partnership contributes to customer loyalty over the long term. We look forward to further developing our relationship and to bringing even more great value and service to consumers and travelers in the years to come.”
In addition to easyJet, Europcar has strategic partnerships with Accor and TUI. It also has a strategic alliance with North American car rental leader Enterprise; together Europcar and Enterprise form the world’s largest car rental network. In addition to these strategic relationships, Europcar has over 80 international partnership agreements with leading players in the travel industry worldwide.
In 2008, it was the first company in Europe to have its “Environmental Charter” - which formalizes its commitments in favor of sustainable development - certified by Bureau Veritas and the first company to win the World Travel Award for “the World’s Leading Green Transport Solution Company.”
