“Following an extensive tender process, Ryanair is pleased to partner with CarTrawler, who offer the best conversion rate in the business, as we launch Ryanair Car Hire, offering the widest range and best value car rental service to our 103 million customers,” said Michael O’Leary, CEO of Ryanair. “This is the latest in a series of customer experience improvements under our ‘Always Getting Better’ program. …”

Based in Dublin, Ireland, CarTrawler has been providing online car rental and customer support to thousands of travel brands since 2004.

“… In CarTrawler, they have chosen a car rental partner with the scale, expertise and technology platform that will help them to deliver on their promise of ‘Always getting better,’” said Mike McGearty, CEO of CarTrawler. “This new partnership is a natural fit between two companies that are trailblazers in their respective fields; Ryanair has transformed air travel while CarTrawler continues to deliver innovative ground transportation solutions to airlines and online travel retailers all over the world.”

“We look forward to providing Ryanair customers with an enhanced car rental experience while delivering the best possible return for Ryanair and its investors through our scientific approach to car rental retailing,” added McGearty.
