Europcar and easyJet have announced a two-year extension to their existing partnership of 13 years.
Since 2003, easyJet customers have rented a car with Europcar and have taken advantage of exclusive rates on rental services, including the lowest price guarantee.
To celebrate the extension to this relationship, easyJet has created a special Europcar livery on four of its aircraft that will fly across the airline’s European network. The first of these aircraft was unveiled at London Luton Airport.
A recent data study by easyJet and Europcar Group has revealed that 36% more customers rent a car with Europcar through easyJet in 2016 compared to five years ago.
“We’re really pleased to announce the extension of our partnership, which will ensure that we can continue to give our customers the lowest prices on their European car hire in the years to come,” said Carolyn McCall, easyJet’s chief executive. “We are excited about the future innovations, which will make travel easier for our passengers.”
“Over the years, Europcar and easyJet have constantly innovated in order to generate unique value to customers,” said Caroline Parot, CEO of Europcar. “By providing complementary services, our partnership contributes to customer loyalty over the long term. In the years to come, we look forward to further improving the value and service delivered to easyJet customers through the forthcoming release of more exciting new innovations, addressing more mobility needs.”
If the San Francisco-based ride-hailing app goes public with that value, it would be worth three times as much as Ford, and more than twice as much as Tesla.
