Tourico Holidays, a wholesale travel brokerage company,  has announced new supplier partnerships with Advantage Rent A Car and E-Z Rent-A-Car. 

As a result of these new partnerships, Tourico expands its access to rental car inventory at 85 locations around the U.S. Tourico will sell this new inventory across its network of 2,500 clients located in 95 countries through XML connectivity.

Over the last year, Tourico has seen a 72% year-over-year increase in overall car rental bookings and a 53% increase in car rental revenue, according to the company. 

“Tourico is best known for its massive impact on the global hotel industry, but our well-established distribution network and continuously growing inventory of car rental partners puts us in a unique position to become leading players in the car rental sector, as well,” said Konni Marshall, director of business development for car rentals at Tourico Holidays.  “After a very strong first half of 2017, adding Advantage and E-Z Rent-A-Car allows us to build on the momentum, while offering our clients new low-cost, high-quality options.”

Additionally, Fox Rent A Car, Dollar, and Thrifty — which had all previously partnered with Tourico through web-based connection only — established XML connectivity to Tourico’s inventory system this summer. 

Tourico has also updated car rental functionality for its distribution clients, allowing them to book cars with an airport pick up and city drop off – and vice versa, according to the company. Previously, the system only allowed for airport-to-airport and city-to-city pick-ups and drop-offs.
