Alamo and Virgin Holidays Sign Car Rental Agreement

Alamo Rent A Car announced May 16 that it has signed an exclusive agreement as Virgin Holidays’ preferred car rental supplier, effective Jan 1, 2010.

This agreement marks the first time Alamo has partnered with Virgin Holidays, the UK’s leading long haul worldwide tour operator.

Beginning Jan. 1, 2010, all Virgin Holidays’ customers will be able to bypass the car rental counter and go straight to Alamo’s self-service kiosks to retrieve their rental agreements. The kiosk can also be used for any last minute changes or additions to the car rental booking, including vehicle upgrades, child seats and additional drivers. Virgin Holidays’ customers will also be able to take advantage of the Alamo Choice product whereby they can choose any vehicle on the forecourt within the category booked.
