Europcar, Hertz launch New Year Sales

Europcar & Hertz logosThe New Year is here, and a couple car hire companies are joining in the celebrations by helping people travel for less. Both Europcar and Hertz are launching winter sales tomorrow that consumers won’t want to miss.

At Europcar, customers can get up to 50% off bookings made between 2 and 31 January for rentals scheduled to be picked up on or before 31 August. Although the sale doesn’t include bookings made for during the Easter holiday, weekend breaks and family holidays will cost less with Europcar. Rental rates will be reduced for the operator’s entire fleet in the UK, giving travelers the car they need for their getaway.

Europcar UK Group managing director Ken McCall says that they are joining the hundreds of other retailers in offering a January sale. After the cost of this holiday season, they want to help their customers stay on the go for less in the New Year. The company’s up to half-price sale, he explained, means that stress free hires are even more affordable. It doesn’t matter if a customer wants to travel in more comfort with the family, drive around the city in a smaller car or escape to the country in something roomier. Europcar has vehicles to suit everyone’s needs.

By shopping for car hire at Hertz, customers all over the world will be able to save on their reservation. This sale will be going on from tomorrow until 31 January and will be available on bookings scheduled for pickup on or before 30 June. Customers who want to take advantage of the offer need to quote the CDP number “766960” when they book over the phone or online.

There is a wide variety of cars available to hire from Hertz, including family vehicles, economical city cars and people carriers. The company also offers a range of extras that customers can request to make their journeys even simpler and more enjoyable. These include child seats, mobile wi-fi, winter equipment, fuel purchase options and NeverLost GPS.

The Hertz sale is only available in certain destinations, a list of which can be found on the operator’s website. In general, consumers will be able to get up to 33% off international rentals in European and Middle Eastern countries and 20% off in the Americas and Asia Pacific nations. Domestic rental discounts are only being offered in Europe, Africa and the Middle East. Even Luxury, Sport, Environment and Family Collection vehicle rentals are on sale in some locations. Customers need to be aware that blackout dates, like Easter, may apply; and no other discounts or promotions can be used on the same reservation. The discount also excludes fees, taxes, surcharges and extras (eg. additional drivers and child seats).

These sales are great for customers who are planning to travel during these periods anyway. The people who haven’t booked a car hire yet to return home following New Year’s events may have the chance to take advantage of the discounts right away…if there are vehicles left to rent. Individuals and families planning to take early summer breaks can enjoy the discounts as well.
