OTTAWA - Coming shortly after the announcement of its partnership and special pricing for members with the Holiday Inn chain (see sidebar at right), Swimming Canada is pleased to announce the signing of a new multi-year marketing partnership with National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. Combined, National and Enterprise are the largest car rental company in the world.
This partnership will not only provide the Swimming Community with fantastic guaranteed rates for cars, SUV’s and mini-vans across North America; but it also includes many pre-negotiated benefits and cost reductions.
“National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car are a perfect addition to our travel service partnership group,” said Swimming Canada CEO Pierre Lafontaine. “By Partnering with the largest rental company in the world, we ensure availability of great rates and great service across North America. When you combine this Partnership with our existing agreement with the IHG Hotel Group we offer our swimming community a phenomenal travel package.”
“Enterprise Holdings is proud and privileged to include Swimming Canada into our corporate portfolio of valued clients,” said John Schultheiss Assistant Vice President Business Rental Development for Enterprise Holdings.
“Enterprise Holdings has two uniquely different brands with National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car and with this agreement, Swimming Canada has access to both product attributes for a true “best value”. We look forward to a mutually successful program with Swimming Canada.”
As part of the Partnership, Swimming Canada will have an exclusive online booking tool for both National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car. This website will allow anyone in the swimming family to obtain the best rates on vehicle rentals quickly and easily. This site will be available for use at www.swimming.ca/travel on April 15, 2010.
In order to take full advantage of the program, individuals will want to enroll in Emerald Club® once they log onto our custom reservation site. The usual $75 fee for enrolling has been waived for all Swimming Canada members.
