Volotea teams with car rental company

Volotea, considered to be the newest low-cost airline in Europe, has announced that it has teamed up with a European car rental company to provide an enhanced service for its passengers.

The company said that it has entered into a multi-year car rental partnership with CarTrawler. The arrangement means that travellers using the services of the air carrier will benefit from the company’s exclusive arrangement with the care-rental company.

In a statement, the air carrier said that domestic and international passengers travelling to and from nine European countries using Volotea’s services, can receive preferential car-rental facilities from CarTrawler. Customers flying in or out of Italy, France, Spain, Czech Republic, Croatia, Germany, Greece and Portugal can make use of the terrestrial service. The firm said that the arrangement would offer a comprehensive choice of car rental suppliers, rental locations and prices for Volotea customers.

To take advantage of the offer, customers need to book their car rentals at www.volotea.com.

Alfons Claver, Volotea’s institutional relations manager, speaking to traveldailynews.com, said, ‘At Volotea we recognise the importance of delivering our customers the best possible service at the lowest possible price. CarTrawler has an important role to play in helping us to keep our services competitive. They have the scale and expertise required to maximise the revenue potential of car rental for our airline. They understand our passengers’ needs and deliver a product that is tailored to their needs.’

His comments were seconded by Joe Farinella, CarTrawler’s marketing manager, who said, ‘Our latest airline partnership with Europe’s newest low fares airline is recognition of our successful delivery of profitable car rental programs in this market and around the world. It further establishes our position as the number one provider of car rental to Europe’s low cost airlines. We are excited about joining Volotea so soon after their launch and we look forward to playing an active role in growing their car rental business.’
