WTA winners easyJet and Europcar renew long-term partnership

European rental giant Europcar and low-cost carrier easyJet have announce the extension of their exclusive partnership until September 2014.

The two companies have been partners since 2003 with three million easyJet customers already benefiting from exclusive offers and services.

Convenience and value for money have always been at the heart of this partnership, combined with a high level of customer service.

Jehan de Thé, Europcar group e-commerce director, said: “We are proud to continue our partnership with easyJet.

“We strongly believe that there is a natural fit between our two market leading organisations.

“Our key strengths are in the same markets and we share similar goals and aspirations.

“For eight years, we have provided easyJet customers with a dedicated service and competitive pricing across our extensive portfolio of products, contributing to customer loyalty over the long term.

“We are now looking forward to serving easyJet passengers for the next three years and will announce shortly some service enhancements.”

Europcar is considered Europe’s Leading Car Hire by the World Travel Awards

The deal means that easyJet customers can use a bespoke Europcar reservation tool which enables them to book a flight and a car simultaneously in one transaction.

If they prefer, customers can book car hire separately online anytime up to two hours prior to their flight.

The comprehensive and easy-to-use booking system means customers can select the right vehicle for their needs as well as allowing them to book any extras at the same time.

Nick Hughes, easyJet’s head of ancillary revenue and partnerships, commented: “easyJet is always looking for ways to make travel easy and affordable for our customers and the continuation of our partnership with Europcar means that millions more customers will benefit from this deal which offers a simple and comprehensive online booking system with the best value-for-money deals available.”

The deal brings together two travel powerhouses, with easyJet having been recognised as Europe’s Leading Low-cost Airline by the World Travel Awards, complimenting the title of Europe’s Leading Car Hire awarded to Europcar earlier this year.
