When Julie Goodman went online just before Christmas to book an easyJet flight from Gatwick to Palma de Mallorca for this summer, she got a little more than she bargained for! Julie is the incredibly lucky winner of a brand new, super stylish Vauxhall Astra TwinTop Convertible courtesy of easyJet and its car rental partner, Europcar.
During December 2007 and January 2008, any customer who booked a summer flight online with easyJet was automatically entered into a prize draw to win an amazing Vauxhall Astra TwinTop, provided by Europcar with the generous support of Vauxhall Motors. Julies name was selected randomly from all the bookings made during the period.
Julie Goodman says: When I was contacted by easyJet to say I had won, I simply couldnt believe it I thought one of my friends must be having a joke. But after some convincing by easyJet and Europcar I am delighted – . I cant wait to get behind the wheel.
The New Astra TwinTop will bring Julie the best of both worlds – the freedom of a convertible together with stunning coupé design, guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes.
Giovanna Picciano, easyJets Partnership Manager said: We are delighted to hand over this fabulous car to Julie. Booking her summer flights and car hire at www.easyJet.com in one simple booking was not only the cheapest option for her, but also gave her a fantastic surprise for 2008! This competition is a wonderful way to mark our relationship with Europcar, who provide a quality service and excellent value at all of our 383 fantastic destinations. Customers hiring a car at easyJet.com can always expect exceptionally keen prices negotiated exclusively for easyJet customers which we back up with a generous double the difference price guarantee.
Carl Gothard, Europcars Direct Sales and Partnership Manager added: Thanks to the support of Vauxhall we have really made Julies year. Europcar and easyJet enjoy a great partnership, enabling travellers to fly and drive at a price to suit their budget and this promotion is just the latest to demonstrate our commitment to work together to bring leisure travellers great rates and a great service.
