Eurowings has partnered with CarTrawler, a global B2B provider of car rental and mobility solutions to provide Eurowings customers a new comparison portal via its website eurowings.com site. The portal can be used to select a rental car from over 2,200 providers worldwide. Customers can select a rental car during the flight booking process or independently afterwards.
With the expanded offer, different car rental providers can be compared with each other and the preferred offer can be selected. As part of a partnership with the mobility provider Sixt as a "Preferred Partner" of Eurowings, customers of the airline can now book rental cars from Sixt "at particularly attractive conditions," according to a press announcement from Eurowings.
CarTrawler already has partnerships with other airlines of the Lufthansa Group. Customers of Swiss Airlines, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines already book their rental cars via CarTrawler.
Aileen McCormack, chief commercial officer at CarTrawler said: “At CarTrawler, our purpose is driving successful partnerships. We have proven this within the Lufthansa Group through our existing partnerships by driving long-term sustainable ancillary revenue growth year after year and this is core to why Eurowings selected CarTrawler for their car rental platform. We are delighted to announce this exclusive agreement with Eurowings which will ensure that their car rental offering aligns with their innovative and customer experience focused proposition. Our travel technology is world class and launching a partnership of this scale as the world still recovers from the pandemic is a testament to the quality of that technology but also an acknowledgement of the value that we are already adding within the wider Lufthansa Group.”
Existing car rental bookings remain unaffected by the change of provider.
