Summary

The airline enters a "Preferred Partnership" with the mobility provider SIXT

  • Partnership with CarTrawler, the leading B2B provider of technology solutions for the global travel industry

  • Eurowings customers benefit from the widest choice of car rental from over 2,200 top suppliers worldwide

  • Flexible cancellation terms if travel plans change

  • Premium vehicles and service with international mobility provider SIXT

Eurowings is now providing its customers with a new comparison portal via its website eurowings.com, which can be used to select their rental car from over 2,200 top providers in the car rental segment worldwide. With CarTrawler,  Eurowings passengers benefit from a broad portfolio of rental cars with 100 percent price transparency as well as a best price guarantee. As part of the new partnership, the offer will be integrated on the Eurowings website so that customers can select the best rental car for them easily and flexibly with just a few clicks when booking their flight.

With the expanded offer, different car rental providers can be conveniently compared with each other and the preferred offer can be selected. As part of a partnership with the mobility provider SIXT as a "Preferred Partner" of Eurowings, customers of the airline can now book rental cars from SIXT at particularly attractive conditions. As a leading international provider of high-quality mobility services, SIXT is present in around 110 countries worldwide. The company stands for consistent customer orientation, a high proportion of premium vehicles in its fleet and an attractive price-performance ratio. 

CarTrawler is the  leading global B2B provider of car rental and mobility solutions and already has partnerships with  other airlines of the Lufthansa Group. Customers of Swiss Airlines, Austrian Airlines and Brussels Airlines already book their rental cars via CarTrawler.

Rental cars can be conveniently reserved via the Eurowings website both during the flight booking process or afterwards independently of a flight booking. All bookings via CarTrawler automatically include flexible cancellation conditions in case travel plans change at short notice. This gives Eurowings customers the greatest possible leeway when booking their rental cars.

"We are pleased to have found two strong and innovative partners in CarTrawler and SIXT, who have convinced us with their strong customer focus. Our passengers can choose from a variety of flexible offers and book at particularly attractive rates. Through a seamless digital experience, we thus offer our passengers the perfect complement to their flight," comments Irina Ens, Unit Lead Digital Marketing & Sales at Eurowings Digital GmbH.

Aileen McCormack, Chief Commercial Officer at CarTrawler commented: β€œAt CarTrawler, our purpose is driving successful partnerships. We have proven this within the Lufthansa Group through our existing partnerships by driving long-term sustainable ancillary revenue growth year after year and this is core to why Eurowings selected CarTrawler for their car rental platform. We are delighted to announce this exclusive agreement with Eurowings which will ensure that their car rental offering aligns with their innovative and customer experience focused proposition. Our travel technology is world class and launching a partnership of this scale as the world still recovers from the pandemic is a testament to the quality of that technology but also an acknowledgement of the value that we are already adding within the wider Lufthansa Group.”         

Regine Sixt, Senior Executive President International Marketing, Sixt SE says: "We are very excited to be working with Europe's leading airline in low-cost air travel. At SIXT, we understand and appreciate the value of strong partnerships. Eurowings is a strong partner, and a leading brand in the travel industry with whom we share many commonalities. This is not least true for the company's customer-centric approach and excellent value for money."

Existing car rental bookings remain unaffected by the change of provider.
