No more car trawling with new service at East Midlands Airport

East Midlands Airport customers can now avoid the hassle of trawling through the internet for the best car hire deal and simply use one-stop shop Car Trawler.

Airport owner M.A.G has partnered with Car Trawler, connecting with over 550 leading car rental suppliers in 174 different countries, totalling over 30,000 city and airport locations.

Car Trawler is the first company to provide a next generation car rental distribution system, specialising solely in car rental. Customers can use the link on the East Midlands Airport homepage to go to the Car Trawler search engine, where they enter which location they want to pick their car up from and the dates required then let Car Trawler seek out the best deals.

Ken O’Toole, Chief Commercial Officer for M.A.G, owners of East Midlands Airport, said: “Previous feedback from our customers has identified that there wasn’t a quick and easy solution when it came to finding the best deal on car rentals. By joining forces with Car Trawler, passengers flying out of or into East Midlands Airport can quickly compare prices on car rental deals and collect the car from a convenient chosen location.

“This could be from East Midlands Airport or your destination airport plus many of the car rental providers have depots around the various destinations, so customers can choose wherever is closest or most convenient for them. The comparison search engine lets you select where you want to collect the car from, what time you want to collect and return it and what type of car you’d prefer.

“We’re confident that the introduction of this new service will greatly improve the car rental experience for our customers and allow them to travel with the knowledge that they got the best deal quickly and easily.”

Car Trawler will provide the service to passengers at the M.A.G owned airports of Manchester, East Midlands and Bournemouth. The service is live from today on the airport websites.

Mike McGearty, CEO of Car Trawler said: "We are delighted to have been selected by M.A.G as a key ancillary revenue partner to their business. Our worldwide car rental platform will enable East Midlands Airport passengers to further extend their range of services past the airport terminal to their passenger’s final destinations, wherever that may be today and in the future as their route network continues to grow.”
