Qatar Airways partners with Booking.com and Rentalcars.com
Qatar Airways has announced new partnerships with Booking.com and Rentalcars.com, providing its passengers with an easy and cost-effective way to access competitively priced places to stay and car rentals when booking their flights via the airline’s official website.
Under the partnerships, Qatar Airways passengers can book and pay online for accommodation at over 800,000 properties in nearly 83,000 exciting destinations, and rent from more than 40,000 car rental locations in 167 countries. This also provides the airline’s Frequent Flyer Programme Privilege Club members the opportunity to earn Qmiles for every hotel room and car rental booking made through the website.
“We look forward to the new partnerships being taken advantage of as our passengers can now benefit from having easy access to a wider selection of places to stay and car rental options from the moment they log on to the Qatar Airways website. This is a great opportunity for us to offer new ancillary products to our worldwide customers, enabling Qatar Airways to take our award-winning service to a new level,” commented Hugh Dunleavy, chief commercial officer at Qatar Airways.
“We are very enthusiastic about this new partnership with Qatar Airways. It creates enhanced value and incredible convenience for consumers by empowering them to easily discover more amazing places to stay from Booking.com when booking their travel with Qatar Airways,” added Bryan Batista, head – strategic partnerships at Booking.com.
“We’re delighted to be partnering with Qatar Airways and offer their passengers a simple, transparent and affordable way to experience car rental. We are eager to add value to their seamless customer journey by creating more opportunities to travel further,” outlined Ady Guthrie, global director at Rentalcars Connect.
“This partnership is also exciting as it presents an opportunity to work alongside our sister company, Booking.com. Together we can provide a unique, conversion driven accommodation and car rental integration that will maximise Qatar Airways ancillary revenues.”
