Ryanair has announced a two-year extension of its partnership with CarTrawler, an online global car rental platform.

CarTrawler powers Ryanair Car Hire, allowing Ryanair’s customers will continue to access a range of cars on the website. Launched in 2015, Ryanair Car Hire offers customers a connection to over 1,600 independent car rental agents in over 43,500 airport and city locations across 190 countries.

The partnership will be expanded to include additional ground transportation services such as taxi and rail transfers.

“As part of our ‘Always Getting Better’ program, we are pleased to extend our exclusive car hire partnership with CarTrawler,” said Kenny Jacobs, chief marketing officer for Ryanair. Customers in more than 180 different countries have already hired cars using Ryanair Car Hire, powered by CarTrawler, on the website, and their industry-leading technology and unrivalled inventory ensures the lowest prices for our customers. We are working closely to expand our offering to include additional ground transfer options, as we continue to offer so much more than just the lowest air fares in Europe.”

“For the last two years, the CarTrawler team has been heavily focused on improving performance of Ryanair Car Hire; we are delighted to see this hard work pay off,” said Mike McGearty, CEO of CarTrawler.  “Innovations such as a complete overhaul of the mobile web platform and a full integration of CarTrawler technology into the Ryanair app has led to a seamless experience across all devices for Ryanair customers.  We are delighted that Ryanair have chosen to extend their partnership with CarTrawler, and we look forward to building on what is already a very successful relationship.”
