YOUR HOLIDAY STARTS NOW
Europcar and easyJet offer customers new car rental package.
easyJet, Europe’s leading low cost airline and Europcar, have built on their already successful partnership by offering travellers on easyJet flights the opportunity to purchase their car rental through ‘dynamic packaging’. easyJet customers now have the option to buy both a flight and car rental in one transaction, with one simple payment. Whilst the car rental and insurance policy remain separate contracts, the combined purchasing functionality is designed to make the whole process quick, easy and efficient.
Europcar have been offering exclusive car rental deals to easyJet customers since 2003 via a white label internet solution. The new ‘dynamic packaging’ means that while customers are booking their flight, the car rental quote is simultaneously being calculated in the background. Once a customer has decided to buy tickets there is an option to add the car rental, creating the dynamic package.
Rachel Start, Online Partnership Manager at easyJet explains, “easyJet led the way by introducing travel insurance into the flight booking process earlier this year. We already offer a variety of travel products at easyJet.com, now with this new offering with Europcar, we are nearer to offering a complete travel solution to our customers.”
Carl Gothard, Europcar Direct Sales Manager, states “Simplicity of booking has been one of the fundamental principals leading to the success of the partnership between Europcar and easyJet. This exciting new development takes that simplicity to the next level and further enhances the customer experience. This can only lead to even greater success”.
The new service has only been available for a short time but sales have already exceeded expectations.
