Rental operator Green Motion announced a collaboration with European airline Wizz Air. As part of the airline’s commitment to promote sustainability, travellers will receive up to a 10% cashback reward when choosing to rent an electric or hybrid vehicle via Green Motion, according to a statement.
Along with access to car rental options through its ongoing partnership with Rentalcars.com, Wizz Air is rewarding customers that choose a more sustainable car rental option with extra cash back. Green Motion has been recognised for its efforts in delivering lower emission car rentals and is currently in 38 airports where Wizz Air operates.
“I am delighted that Green Motion was chosen by Rentalcars.com and Wizz Air to further promote and deliver the most sustainable travel options from flying to car rental, said Richard Lowden, founder & CEO of Green Motion in the statement. "Green Motion has one of the widest choices of environmentally-friendly vehicles within our sector, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full-electric, which are available to rent from Green Motion locations in many of Wizz Air’s destinations. The Green Motion network are thoroughly looking forward to working closely with Wizz Air and Rentalcars.com to deliver this fantastic benefit that rewards our mutual customers for joining us on our journey to make car rental greener, trip by trip.”
“At Wizz Air, we strive to continuously decrease our environmental footprint through a wide range of sustainability initiatives," added Johan Eidhagen, chief people & ESG officer of Wizz Air. "This, paired with our commitment to optimising the customer’s travel experience, is why we are pleased to launch this new reward scheme through our partner Rentalcars.com, which will enable our customers to easily rent cars across our extensive network at a discounted price, whilst making the greenest choice they can by choosing Green Motion. We are proud to already have the lowest carbon footprints - of only 57.2 grams per passenger kilometre - in the European aviation industry, and this partnership only enhances our leading sustainability position further.”
‘We’re thrilled to be partnering with Wizz Air to offer travellers access to eco-friendly car rental options in collaboration with Green Motion; not only can their customers do their bit for the environment but they can also make some great savings at the same time, commented Matthias Schmid, vice president & managing director of Rentalcars.com. "We’ve worked with Wizz Air for over seven years, they’re a valued partner of ours and this new initiative is one that we’re particularly excited about.”
