Hotel Brands Are Offering Guests Car Rentals As Part Of Room Package

Hotels from around the world are optimizing the consumer experience by including a car option with their room package, saving guests the hassle of dealing with a separate rental agency and keeping more business in-house

Booking with a car rental service when traveling can not only be costly, but also eat into the customers’ time from their vacation plans, instead spent setting up the arrangements, retrieving the vehicle and then returning it to the rental service.

Several hospitality brands such as Hilton DoubleTree, Vintage House, and Hotel Villagio are taking those measures out of the equation when it comes to mixing travel and hospitality with transportation capabilities. They are doing so by offering guests vehicle rental integrated into their hotel room packages, including a flat rate for services and immediate access to the vehicles.

The Hilton DoubleTree & Suites in Victoria, British Columbia, is offering its guests two vehicle options to choose from when booking their room package. The My Stay My Car package is only offered at this DoubleTree location with the option of selecting a SOLO electric car that can fit one passenger plus their luggage, or a Toyota Prius that can seat up to five passengers. When booking their stay at this location, guests will select the ‘add vehicle’ option, which instructs them to choose their vehicle preference. Upon arrival, they will be given the keys to their vehicle with their room all in one. Guests will also receive complementary parking.

The Vintage House and Hotel Villagio are luxury hotels both located on The Estate Yountville property in Napa Valley, California. The Hotel Villagio is offering guests a chance to book a hotel package that includes a Corvette, or Jaguar F Type. The Top Down Napa Valley package is intended to encourage customers to explore Napa Valley, and enjoy the experiences the valley has to offer without the hassle of renting a luxury car.

The Vintage House hotel, located on the same property, is offering complimentary bikes to guests who would like to tour the 22-acre state, a complimentary electric car charging station, and will arrange a limousine or sedan service upon request for customers who want to explore Napa Valleys wine tours and excursions.

As more traditional hotel brands compete with the popularity of room-share services like Airbnb, they increasingly are finding ways to incentivize business, offering customers optimized hospitality, amenities and convenience. By providing vehicle transportation, and curating a package that prepares the service for their clientele, these hotels are attempting to help guests maximize their stay, and fully enjoy their destinations offerings.
