- Special aircraft livery celebrating the partnership unveiled
- Data study by easyJet and Europcar found car hire has increased by 36% in past five years
Today the two partners announced a two year extension to their existing partnership which has been in place for 13 years. Since the partnership began in 2003, millions of customers have hired a car with Europcar through easyJet and have taken advantage of exclusive rates on rental services including the Lowest Price Guarantee and receiving a great service across all of the 31 countries the airline flies to.
To celebrate the extension to this long term relationship, easyJet has created a special Europcar livery on four of its aircraft that will fly across the airline’s European network. The first of these aircraft was unveiled at London Luton Airport by easyJet CEO Carolyn McCall and Europcar Group CEO Caroline Parot.
A recent data study by easyJet, Europe’s leading airline, and Europcar Group, the European leader in vehicle rental services, has revealed customers feel more confident to hire a car and drive in Europe than ever before with 36% more customers hiring a car with Europcar through easyJet in 2016 compared to five years ago.
Carolyn McCall, easyJet Chief Executive said:
“It’s never been easier to book flights and car hire together and this is clearly demonstrated with more and more people using this service every year.
“We’re really pleased to announce the extension of our partnership which will ensure that we can continue to give our customers the lowest prices on their European car hire in the years to come. We are excited about the future innovations which will make travel easier for our passengers”
Europcar CEO Caroline Parot commented;
“Over the years, Europcar and easyJet have constantly innovated in order to generate unique value to customers. By providing complementary services, our partnership contributes to customer loyalty over the long term. In the years to come, we look forward to further improving the value and service delivered to easyJet customers through the forthcoming release of more exciting new innovations, addressing more mobility needs.”
Since beginning their exclusive partnership in 2003, Europcar and easyJet have constantly innovated to provide top of the line mobility solutions at exclusively discounted prices to all easyJet customers and have delivered a number of firsts.. This started with being the first in Europe to offer a fully integrated dynamic booking path allowing customers to book their flight and car in one single transaction and payment, through to being the first car rental and airline partners to offer an exclusive customer charter and service guarantee.
