Europcar wins gold at the World Travel Awards

22 October 2012

Europcar has won the prestigious title of Australasia's Leading Car Hire at the World Travel Awards for the third year in a row.

The World Travel Awards, now in their 19th year, support the global travel and tourism industry by identifying and rewarding excellence, with the winners chosen by travel agents across the globe.

Europcar Sales and Marketing Director (Australia and New Zealand), Mike Warmington, attended the ceremony in Singapore on Thursday 18 October 2012 to receive the award among the world's travel elite.

"We are honoured to receive the Leading Car Hire Award for the third year running and for the sixth time in the past seven years," Mr Warmington said.

"Europcar is continually innovating and adapting to improve the customer experience so it is fantastic to be recognised in the industry as the best vehicle rental company in our region."

The World Travel Awards were established in 1993 to acknowledge, reward and celebrate excellence across all sectors of the tourism industry. Each award is recognised globally as the ultimate hallmark of quality, with winners setting the benchmark for all other competitors.

Mr Warmington said the award reaffirms the company's refreshed brand and customer promise, with the company having unveiled a new global tagline - Moving Your Way - earlier this year.

"Moving Your Way is about providing customers with diversified travel solutions and continually evolving to meet their changing needs," Mr Warmington said.

"We want to be the best car rental company with respect to customer experience, quality of service, value for money and product. In short, we want people to trust us - and recommend us."

Europcar also won Europe's Leading Car Hire and Europe's Responsible Tourism at this year's World Travel Awards.
