U.S. Rent A Car Shortlisted For A Prestigious Travolution Award

Afternoon all,

We’ve just received some good news, we’ve been nominated for a 6th time in 7  years for a Travolution award in the category of best car hire website :-)

We were first nominated in this category back in 2007, we returned in 2009, 2010 (2 categories) and 2011 never quite getting over the finish line. Although I’m pretty sure we hold the record for most nominations.

Can usrentacar.co.uk Break It’s Award Duck?

Hi all,

I was just looking through some archived posts on the usrentacar car hire usa blog and noted the amount of nominations we’ve received over the years from some very prestigious Travel media sites.

Now I say nominations, as to date we’ve never won any! I know! An outrage…;-)

We’ve received the following industry nominations

Awards

Nomination British Travel Awards – Car Hire Company of the year 2010 & 2011

Nomination British Travel Awards - Best Travel and Tourism iPhone/Smart Phone App 2011

Nomination Travolution Awards – Best Car Hire Company 2007, 2009, 2010 & 2011

Nomination Travolution Awards - Best Mobile Applcation 2011

Nomnination Travelmole Awards – Best Car Hire Website 2007 & 2009

A total of 10 nominations!!!!

Now granted winning awards isn’t really what we are in the business to do, and being a niche car rental site does reduce your chances slightly plus I can never see the big boss spending out on a massive PR campaign to win a trophy (some do!!) but surely just from the law of averages alone, we are due to win something soon….surely?

This year we are nominated for a possible 4 awards, 2 of which are judged by the industry, Best Car Hire website and Best mobile application at the Travolution Awards, this is our 5th nomination from Travolution over the years…surely?

The other 2 nominations are from the British travel awards, and are for Car Hire company of the year and Best Travel and Tourism iPhone/Smart Phone App for the usrentacar voucher app! Now these awards are judged partly by the industry and partly by you… yes you….

You can help usrentacar.co.uk break our award duck by doing the following.

About the British Travel Awards

BTA’s chief executive Lorraine Barnes Burton said: “The British Travel Awards are widely considered to be the “Oscars” of the travel industry!  It’s the largest awards programme in the UK created to reward travel companies and the winning accolade is the benchmark for excellence when it comes to finding out who really is the best in the business of travel for the UK consumer.”

Companies were nominated by travel industry professionals and a selection of the previous year’s consumer voters, and the shortlisted companies now go to the consumer voting stage. In 2010 over 120,000 votes were cast with the results scrutinized and audited by Deloitte LLP.  The winners of the 2011 British Travel Awards will be announced at a glittering ceremony on 2 November at the Battersea Evolution in Battersea Park, London.

Kind regards,

James
