Enterprise car hire and Red Funnel ferries forge partnership

Red Funnel FerryThe Red Funnel Ferry Company has joined forces with Enterprise Rent-A-Car to offer customers an exciting range of new benefits. The Isle of Wight ferry operator has confirmed Enterprise and its affiliate, Enterprise Car Club, are its new preferred car rental partners.

The new partnership allows ferry passengers to take advantage of Enterprise meet-and-greet services from ferry ports. The service will be available on the Isle of Wight at East and West Cowes as well as Southampton.

Paul Smith is the south-central England regional manager for Enterprise. Commenting on the new collaboration he said it would offer extra travel solutions for people crossing the Solent between Southampton and the Isle of Wight.

Mr Smith continued by saying the options of car hire and car club would satisfy all requirements for rental periods from one hour upwards. He finished off with the codicil that choosing Enterprise would provide total freedom and flexibility.

Red Funnel’s CEO, Kevin George, said he was thrilled to be tying up with Enterprise. He noted that the launch of the Enterprise Car Club service in West Cowes had added an extra dimension to the partnership. He explained that he thought Red Funnel and Red Jet passengers would be delighted with the additional travel choices.

Red Funnel is one of three companies with ferries plying routes across the Solent between the mainland and the Isle of Wight. From Southampton, Red Funnel’s car ferries dock at West Cowes while its hi-speed Red Jet passenger catamarans land at East Cowes.
