ORLANDO, FL, Jan. 10, 2018 – Advantage Rent A Car (“Advantage”) is thrilled to be named “Best Car Rental” by Gay Travel. The honor is part of the organization’s 2017 Gay Travel Awards℠, which support and promote LGBTQ travel and tourism by identifying and rewarding organizations that exemplify a spirit of inclusiveness, superb customer service and hospitality excellence.
The competition included hundreds of finalists chosen from thousands of prospects. The 23 winners were selected by GayTravel.com’s editors, experts and gurus — and, for the first time, readers were included as a voting component. More than 80 percent of respondents to a GayTravel.com survey indicated that the organization’s awards are “very important” to their travel decisions.
“We’re beyond proud to receive this Gay Travel award,” says Scott Davido, President and CEO of Advantage. “Our company consistently strives to provide exceptional customer service and inclusivity to all. Winning the ‘Best Car Rental’ award means we are succeeding in those efforts. We’re honored to be recognized.”
“I wish to offer my heartfelt congratulations to Advantage Rent A Car. Advantage serves as a role model that inspires other companies and brands around the world to continually raise their service levels and promotions to the LGBTQ community, while encouraging a broad spirit of inclusiveness. Their efforts are heard and recognized not just by the LGBTQ community but also by their spheres of influence,” says Steve Rohrlick, Gay Travel Awards Founder and Chief Visionary Officer.
“Advantage winning this 2017 Gay Travel award is significant because it drives us all to be more inclusive,” said Rohrlick.
In May 2017, GayTravel.com announced its partnership with Advantage Rent A Car as part of its Let’s Get OUT There! initiative. Created to inspire LGBTQ travelers to explore amazing destinations and seek out enriching events, Let’s Get OUT There! harnesses the collective buying power of gay travelers across the globe for the benefit of the gay community.
The initiative’s first travel destination inspiration was Florida for Orlando United Day on June 12, 2017, which paid tribute to the 49 victims of the Pulse nightclub shooting the year before. During the event, Advantage provided cars to victims’ immediate family members and domestic partners.
In honor of its special partnership with GayTravel.com, Advantage offers a 20 percent discount to members of the LGBTQ community, and it waives the usual charge for an additional driver. Travelers can book their vehicles at Advantage.com/Gay-Travel.
