Orlando, FL — Advantage Rent A Car (“Advantage”) and E-Z Rent-A-Car (“E-Z”), the fourth largest rental car company in the U.S., will be exhibiting at the GovTravels trade show next week.

Orlando, FL — Advantage Rent A Car (“Advantage”) and E-Z Rent-A-Car (“E-Z”), the fourth largest rental car company in the U.S., will be exhibiting at the GovTravels trade show next week.

Hosted by the National Defense Transportation Association (NDTA), this trade show is the year’s premier gathering of government travel stakeholders, rental car companies, hotels and airfare industry executives.

This year’s theme, “SAFEGUARDING OUR TRAVELERS TODAY AND TOMORROW” speaks to the show’s intent and how this intent can be achieved by gaining a better understanding of modern travel and passenger service and security challenges.

“I believe it’s the duty of every company involved in travel and passenger services to know and understand the current travel landscape,” said Bill Plamondon, President of Advantage Rent A Car. “GovTravels provides a platform for industry professionals to both learn about emerging government needs as well as demonstrate their prowess in this field. That’s why we’ll be participating.”

Upon their merger in 2015, Advantage and E-Z have sought unique ways to serve the travel needs of both local and federal government agencies. Jointly, they offer car rental discounts to government employees and contractors engaging in government-related travel. They also extend discounts to military veterans.

“As two brands working in lockstep, we have a more comprehensive set of car rental solutions and packages,” said Mr. Plamondon. “Now Advantage and E-Z can provide both premium and economy solutions for travel needs at every level of government. We’re confident that we are the best single source car rental option participating in the show and we intend to demonstrate that while we’re there.”

The Hilton Alexandria Mark Center in Alexandria, VA, will host the trade show on March 29th through the 31st. The three-day event will include presentations from industry leaders, panel discussions and professional enrichment courses.

Advantage and E-Z encourage attendees to stop by booth #11 to talk with rental car consultants to learn more about government specific special offers, fleet quality, and service locations.

“We are thrilled about opening this new LAX location,” said CEO Mehrdad Memarpouri. “A great customer experience isn’t just about the car. It’s about the entire rental process—from the moment you leave the gate to the moment you press the ignition button. We’ve considered every detail in the planning and execution of this facility and we think our customers will see and feel the difference.”

Growth through a superior customer experience and a premium-quality fleet have been at the core of the Advantage, E-Z and Europcar relationship. The opening of this state-of-the-art rental car facility at LAX is another step in this growth strategy. “This was a great project to be a part of and I couldn’t be happier with the result,” said developer, Michael Koper. “I think Advantage, E-Z and Europcar have taken a big step forward in improving the customer journey through the car rental process.”

The grand opening will be held at the new Advantage, E-Z and Europcar LAX facility, located at 1030 W. Manchester Blvd., on April 13 from noon to 2 p.m. Lunch and refreshments will be provided to those in attendance. There will also be a $500 rental car voucher given away to one lucky attendee.
