Attraction-Tickets.info Receives usrentacar.co.uk® Backing

Hi all,

In the past couple of months I’ve guest blogged and “borrowed” information from one of my favourite blogs, www.attraction-tickets.info, the site is a news and information portal for all things theme park related.

Well today I’m happy to announce a more formal tie up with the guys at attraction tickets .info.

usrentacar.co.uk® has purchased a major stake in the fledgling start up which ties in nicely with our increased presence in the attraction tickets market.

Managing Director Gavin Boswell stated “We are happy to get on board with a team that is totally committed to an area that is extremely interesting to us”.

Gavin went on to state that his own involvement would be  limited to advice and structuring the site to a more profitable business model.

“The guys have been doing a great job of gathering information and building up relationships. They don’t need me to show them how to write an article!”

When asked if there would be any further purchases Gavin stated “usrentacar.co.uk® are always on the look out for sites that fit in with our ethos”

So that’s a maybe then??? ;-)

usrentacar.co.uk® Review

Hi all,

You’ll have to forgive me for today’s very self indulgent blog but I thought I’d post some of the great reviews our customers have written about usrentacar.co.uk®. All the testimonials below have been written in the last 30 days.

This is the fourth time I have booked through US Rent A Car. As usual they were the cheapest and the best. I always check all other sites before booking and then US Rent A Car and then end up booking with them again. Keep up the great offers especially the free upgrades. Many Thanks. – Mr Chalres Mills

Very satified with service and would recommend & use again. This is the 2nd time we have used this site. – Mr James McBride

Very please with the car and service ,see you next year for my next holiday – Mr David Knight

Easy from start to finish as always, have been using USRentacar for the last 7 years twice a year which is always cheaper then booking direct where you can end up with hidden extra costs on car collection. – Mrs Natalie de la cruz

usrentacar.co.uk® At The World Travel Market


This week we have been busy at the World Travel Market (WTM)wtmmeeting existing suppliers and seeking out new opportunities.  Some photo’s are available on our facebook page – here ttp://www.facebook.com/usrentacar.co.uk

About WTM

Staged annually in London, World Travel Market is a vibrant must attend four-day business-to-business event presenting a diverse range of destinations and industry sectors to UK and International travel professionals. It is a unique opportunity for the whole global travel trade to meet, network, negotiate and conduct business under one roof.

Our Meetings

Dollar Rent A Car

Our first meeting of the day was with Dollar Rent A Car. Dollar, like ourselves, have had a very impressive 2010, resulting in their quarter 3 results being the best in the companies history. They informed us that they had just purchased new fleet and like most of the travel industry are cautiously optimistic about 2011.

They did confirm that there would be a slight rise in pricing for 2011 which will come in to effect shortly, at present we are still honouring this years pricing for next year.

Alamo Rent A Car

Next up was Alamo Rent A Car, again Alamo have produced an impressive yearly performance boosted by a buoyant second hand car hire market. They also confirmed that there would be a rate increase for 2011 shortly however an immediate increase from Jan – Mar 2011 was issued. On a positive note Alamo stated that they have just added the Ford Mustang to their Convertible range.

Budget Rent A Car

The last of our car hire meetings was with Budget Rent A Car. Again, boosted by a surprising second hand market for cars of 56k miles plus Budget also have had a great year.

Budget confirmed that their upgrade special offer (see terms) has been extended in to next year, I tried my best to get these upgrades guaranteed however at present this isn’t possible. As was the trend Budget also anticipate a rate increase however this will not take place immediately.

Rest of WTM

I don’t want to curse it, so I will only tease at it, but we have almost secured a very exciting non car hire related contract. With out giving to much away it is one of those contracts we have been trying for continuously for many years, so fingers crossed we can bring this to you very soon.

We had an interesting conversation with an aerial tours company based in Florida which might be a good fit with some of our more adventurous customers and an interesting chat with the U.S. government.

All in all the WTM was very productive and over the next couple of months we hope to be able to offer you some very interesting non car hire deals. Watch this space.

Any questions please ask below.
