Drivalia Car Rental
Two of the team left the sunny shores of Alicante in recent weeks to represent the company at 2 major industry events.
First of all Fernando was a guest at the Car Trawler Annual Supplier Conference in Dublin from 24 – 26 October. Car Trawler is a major car rental distributor and Drivalia was one of 4 independent companies nominated in the category “Best Independent Car Rental Company
”. When you consider that Car Trawler works with more than 500 leading and independent rental companies worldwide this is quite an achievement; and especially for a company only 2 years old.
Congratulations to the Drivalia Team.
Next stop London. Last week, Martin and Fernando attended the annual World Travel Market
at ExCeL in London. This is one of the world’s leading travel industry business-to-business events presenting a diverse range of destinations and industry sectors to UK and International travel professionals. It is a great way of staying abreast of latest developments in the travel industry and of networking with current and new business contacts.
