Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. is pleased to announce that its subsidiary, Dollar Rent A Car, has signed a multi-year agreement with JetBlue Airways to provide rental cars as part of the JetBlue Getaways vacation packages. Beginning in August, Dollar will be an exclusive value car rental provider for JetBlue Getaways.
JetBlue Getaways provides customer-defined vacation packages and deals that bundle JetBlue airfare, hotel and/or a rental car. These packages will now feature Dollar vehicles in all major leisure destinations that both companies service.
“We are thrilled to join forces with such a well-regarded airline and be a part of its successful vacation program,” said Scott Thompson, president and CEO of Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group, Inc. “Both Dollar and JetBlue Getaways’ products complement each other nicely and provide exceptional value to customers. We are looking forward to developing this relationship with JetBlue, and think this will be a real growth opportunity for Dollar over the next few years.”
“JetBlue Getaways is pleased to announce this partnership as Dollar is a great fit to our brand,” said Grant McCarthy, JetBlue’s director of getaways and ancillary travel. “Our customers will find more and better deals as they plan their vacations and will find the same great service and value product they are already accustomed to on the ground.”
The Dollar-JetBlue Getaways partnership is designed to provide customers with an additional opportunity to save even more time and money. In August, value-conscious JetBlue Getaway customers will have access to Dollar’s budget-friendly deals at cities throughout the U.S.
