Discount customers can now collect and redeem Petro-Points on every car and truck rental
TORONTO, April 1, 2014 /CNW/ - Discount Car and Truck Rentals, one of Canada's largest vehicle rental companies and the only one owned and operated by Canadians, is proud to announce a new partnership with Petro-Canada's Petro-Points™ customer loyalty program.
"We think our customers will see great value in the savings we can offer by partnering with the Petro-Points program. There is a natural fit between Discount and Petro-Points because almost all of our customers own their own vehicles; now they can turn their car rental expenditures with Discount into everyday rewards," said Jay Singer, President and CEO of Toronto-based Discount Car and Truck Rentals.
The new partnership will allow Discount Car and Truck Rentals' customers to earn and redeem Petro-Points with any car and truck rental made at nearly 300 participating Discount Car and Truck Rentals locations across Canada (excluding New Brunswick and Newfoundland). Discount customers will collect 10 points for every $1 spent on vehicle rentals, and can redeem 12,000 points for $10 off their rental. Petro-Points members will also benefit from Discount's free drop off and pick-up service - one of the pillars of Discount's exceptional customer service commitment.
"Partnerships are what make the Petro-Points loyalty program unique and we believe we have found a great partner in Discount," said Louis Cote, director, Loyalty and Strategic Partnerships for Suncor Energy, the proud owner of Petro-Canada. "By adding Discount as a Petro-Points partner we are able to offer our customers more places to earn points and more choice in rewards."
Discount customers can book rentals online at www.discountcar.com or by phone at 310-CARS. Customers can earn and redeem Petro-Points by presenting their Petro-Points card at any of the nearly 300 participating Discount Car and Truck Rentals locations across Canada.
