Fairmont Guests to Receive Exclusive Rates on Car Rentals Worldwide
TORONTO, June 22, 2010 – Making it easier for travelers to get out and explore its unparalled destinations, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has named Avis Rent A Car the preferred provider for its distinctive collection of luxury hotels and resorts worldwide.
With the new alliance, guests of Fairmont can save up to 25 percent when renting a car at participating Avis locations worldwide. Additionally, exclusive benefits and other special offers will be extended to members of Fairmont’s guest loyalty program, Fairmont President’s Club, with these additional incentives to launch later in the year. Guests can learn more about the new rental benefit or make a reservation by visiting www.fairmont.com or calling 1-800-441-1414.
“We’re excited to team up with a leading rental brand like Avis and look forward to providing our guests with a greater range of options to explore and discover the striking and dynamic locations that our hotels call home,” said Brian Richardson, Fairmont’s vice president, brand marketing & communications.
Whether it’s hitting the open road in a convertible to fully take in the majestic views of the Canadian Rockies at the Fairmont Banff Springs, Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise or Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge, cruising along the Pacific Coast at the stately Fairmont San Francisco or Fairmont Newport Beach, or jumping behind the wheel to tour the glitz and glamour of the Côte d’Azur at the Fairmont Monte Carlo, Fairmont destinations are sometimes best explored on four wheels.
“We’re happy to collaborate with Fairmont and have their guests as well as Fairmont President’s Club members experience the high-quality car rental services that we have to offer,” said Kaye Ceille, senior vice president of travel and partnerships for Avis Budget Group, parent company of Avis. “They will surely enjoy the benefits of renting with Avis, including our guaranteed smoke-free vehicles, the ‘Cool Car’ collection and the world-renowned Avis ‘We try harder’ service.”
Fairmont Hotels & Resorts’ exclusive guest recognition program, Fairmont President's Club, provides frequent guests special benefits and privileges designed to reflect individual travel preferences and offer an enhanced level of service. Personalized travel profiles afford members customized stay experiences while in-hotel benefits include perks like complimentary high-speed and wireless internet access and exclusive members-only Great Rates – Great Dates deals for savings on Fairmont getaways.
