Europcar, the number one car rental company in Europe, and easyJet, Europe's leading low-cost airline, has announced the extension of their strategic partnership until the end of 2011.

Thanks to the partnership, easyJet customers can reserve both their flight and their rental vehicle on the easyJet.com web site in a simple and time-saving manner. Through the partnership with Europcar, easyJet customers also benefit from guaranteed Europcar car hire availability at particularly competitive rates across the latest model vehicles ensuring minimal CO2 emissions.

To celebrate the Europcar partnership's extension, from June 15th easyJet passengers can receive exclusive car hire deals upon their arrival at the airport or at any one of Europcars 2,500 car rental agencies around Europe. Other benefits include free additional driver and upgrades through on-line booking. The offers apply to passengers for all easyJet routes and destinations around Europe and the Mediterranean region.

Commenting on the partnership extension, Europcar Groupe Chief Operating Officer Rafael Girona said, "Over the years, Europcar and easyJet have developed a mutually beneficial relationship which has brought demonstrable results and value to customers. By providing complementary services and sharing the same concern for quality service and sustainable development, our partnership contributes to customer loyalty over the long term. We look forward to further developing our relationship and to bringing even more great value and service to consumers and travellers in the years to come."

Bill McKimm, easyJet's head of Ancillary Revenue, said: "We are absolutely delighted to continue to be working with Europcar, Europe's leading car rental providers, and that so many customers have chosen to book their car rental via this partnership. We know that in the current economic climate customers are not only looking for great value flights but also enjoying the extra benefits of flying with easyJet."

In addition to direct car hire deals and the easyJet partnership, Europcar has strategic partnerships with Accor, the leading hotel group in Europe and number 3 worldwide and TUI, the world's leading tour operator.
