Red Funnel signs Enterprise as car rental partner

Red Funnel Isle of Wight Ferries has announced the appointment of Enterprise Rent-A-Car as its preferred car hire partner.

It will now be possible to book vehicles from any Enterprise branch location using a quick and easy-to-use booking widget on Red Funnel’s website.

The exciting new partnership will deliver a host of benefits for Red Funnel customers and, just as importantly, will help attract new visitors to the Isle of Wight.

The partnership also covers Enterprise Car Club, the hourly and daily rental service.

Kevin George, Red Funnel chief executive, commented: “We are excited to announce this new partnership with Enterprise Rent-A-Car along with the launch of the popular Enterprise Car Club in West Cowes - we believe it will prove popular with Red Jet customers.”


To make cross-Solent journeys as easy as possible, Enterprise will arrange pick-up from Red Funnel’s terminals in Southampton or in East and West Cowes if customers tell them the arrival time of their ferry.

Paul Smith, Enterprise Rent-A-Car general manager for south central England, added: “Our partnership with Red Funnel adds a whole new dimension of travel options for anyone travelling between the Island and the mainland and using the Red Jet to and from West Cowes.

“Our car club and branch services combine to provide a very wide range of travel options whether you need a vehicle for just an hour or for much longer. It offers total flexibility.”
