Europcar Joins Forces with Discount Car and Truck Rentals

Discount Car and Truck Rentals Ltd., a Canadian vehicle rental company, created a new alliance with Europcar, a car rental network operating in more than 130 countries.

Under this new partnership, Discount Car and Truck Rentals will provide customers across Canada with fast and convenient access to one of the largest rental car outlets in Europe, Central America, the Caribbean, Africa, the Middle East, the Asia-Pacific region, etc.

In addition to giving travelers access to Europcar's international network, Discount Car and Truck Rentals — with nearly 300 locations across Canada — will also serve Europcar customers who are seeking vehicle rentals in Canada.

"The entire Discount Car and Truck Rentals team is very excited about this new alliance,” said Jay Singer, president and CEO of Toronto-based Discount Car and Truck Rentals. “For the first time in our 33-year-history, we are able to offer the entire globe to our Canadian customers and clients by partnering with Europcar. We have the utmost confidence that Europcar will take great care of our Canadian customers. As well, we look forward to reciprocating with the highest level of service to their customers and clients visiting our beautiful country."

"The new partnership with Discount is the next step in our strategy to further develop our global footprint and extend our opportunities in the world's car rental market, especially in North America," said Roland Keppler, CEO of Europcar Group.
