easyJet and Europcar Announce New Partnership

easyJet has announced that it has officially appointed Europcar
as its preferred supplier to offer car rental services to its customers .

The leading low-cost airline has joined with the leading European
car rental company to offer its passengers additional services and even
better value.

Mirroring easyJet`s philosophy that the earlier you book, the better the
deal, Europcar is rewarding early bookers with higher levels of discount at
most destinations. easyJet passengers who pre-book will also be able to
benefit from additional special offers and discount throughout the year. And
for those passengers who need total rental flexibility, Europcar is offering
special deals on arrival at the airport.

easyJet and Europcar are committed to offering customers simplicity in
online service and have worked together to develop a booking process that
offers real savings in time and effort. Building on this theme, Europcar is
offering customers the opportunity to pre-register on the web site and
benefit from a priority service on arrival at the Europcar Airport desk


Ray Webster, easyJet CEO, comments: ” As Europe`s Number one low-cost
airline, easyJet is constantly looking for ways of giving the customer the
best possible deal. Like easyJet, Europcar has a very strong European brand
and a reputation to match. The strength of their network complements ours
and will enable us to provide excellent service at all of our destinations.”

Marie Barry, Europcar UK Managing Director, says :“easyJet and Europcar are
both very focused on giving customers real added-value not only through
affordable deals but also by providing them with a hassle-free all-round
travel experience.” She adds: “The two organisations will grow together,
expand our networks and the services we offer.”
