Maiellano Car Rental, a specialist in car rentals throughout Europe and Italy and a brand of Central Holidays, is offering new hotel booking services through its website. In addition to offering its customary lineup of Hertz car rental services in Europe, the website will now feature a large selection of hotels in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal and Greece that are all bookable online and offer highly competitive rates. Travel agents can earn commissions ranging from 10 to 15 percent.
By offering the ability to book both hotels and car rentals online, the car rental company helps travel agents build Fly & Drive packages, which will allow them to give their clients the freedom of booking an independent tour with the low rates afforded by Maiellano Car Rental's buying power, according to the company.
This new service allows the Maiellano Car Rental website to be a one-stop shop for travel professionals to build entire Europe vacation packages—complete with hotel, car rental and air. Maiellano Car Rental also offers a large variety of pre-built Fly & Drive packages such as Tuscany at Leisure; Sicily on Wheels; Eternal Athens; Discover Costa del Sol; Algarve City Stay; and Provence at Leisure.
Maiellano reports it can offer Hertz Europe and Italy car rentals with unlimited mileage and with discounted rates. It can also confirm hotel accommodations and suggest itineraries that include options in Italy, Greece, Spain, Portugal and France.
Maiellano Car Rental offers a wide selection of quality vehicles from economy and compact car models to convertibles, sport-utility vehicles and minivans as well as specialty cars. All Europe car rentals feature unlimited mileage, insurance, taxes and charges, 24-hour emergency roadside assistance and Hertz Neverlost In-Car Navigation System.
For a nominal daily charge, travelers can get navigation systems available on request for a selection of vehicle categories and specific locations. These GPS systems provide turn-by-turn directions to points of interest and user-friendly controls and menus.
"As a travel provider, we feel it is our goal to offer our clients the most convenient and affordable ways to book and travel to Europe," said Fabio Sembiante, vice president of sales and marketing for the Central Holiday Travel Group. "Our customers can now search and book competitive rates for both cars and hotels through the Maiellano Car Rental website, and also benefit from the more than 30 years experience of sending travelers to Europe that Maiellano Car Rental and Central Holidays offer, as well as the strong Hertz car rental service.”
