National Car Rental introduce initiatives for corporate travellers

National Car Rental, is reinforcing its focus on corporate travellers at this year’s World Travel Market with a range of initiatives.

“Whilst a big part of the focus for WTM is on the leisure traveller, we know that there is also good representation from those sectors of the travel trade that focus on business travel” explained Mark Lister, regional director, EMEA franchising & corporate accounts for National Car Rental. “We will therefore be talking about a number of initiatives that have been developed to enhance the relationship corporate travellers and their travel managers have with vehicle rental. It’s often the ‘poor relation’ to flights, airports and hotels but, of course, is the critical connection to those services. So our goal is to make the entire rental experience for businesses as streamlined and cost-effective as possible.”
