The West Coast Eagles are delighted to welcome Budget – Australia’s leading truck, bus and passenger car rental business – as an Official Partner of the Club.
Linked by their trusted reputations for delivering when it matters most across Australia, the Eagles and Budget have announced a two-year partnership.
“The Club is pleased to welcome Budget on board, and we look forward to building a strong partnership over the coming years,” Tony Haselhurst, West Coast General Manager – Commercial Operations, said.
“Budget is a respected brand that is already firmly entrenched in Western Australia and will be familiar to many of our members and supporters.
“Our partnership will extend to match-day advertising initiatives at our world-class Optus Stadium as well as Business to Business opportunities through our West Coast Connect program from the 2022 season onwards.”
With more than 220 rental locations nationwide and 25 in Western Australia, including every major regional airport, Budget has one of the country’s largest van, ute, truck, bus, 4WD and specialty commercial vehicle fleets.
Outstanding customer service is a hallmark of the company, and Budget was recently named the 2021 Reader’s Digest Most Trusted Car Rental Brand – an award voted on by the Australian public.
“Just like the Eagles with their members and supporters, Budget prides itself on a high level of commitment to deliver superior service for our customers,” Tom Mooney, Managing Director of Avis Budget Group, Pacific, said.
For more than 40 years Budget has built a strong reputation in Western Australia, and is excited to keep kicking goals in the west thanks to the partnership with the West Coast Eagles.
“Versatility is the name of the game for West Coast on the field and it is no different in car rental, we have a range of vehicles suited for every type of job no matter how big or small,” Tom Mooney said.
“We look forward to continuing to build on Budget’s reputation for providing safe, reliable and high-quality car rental service and in partnership with the West Coast Eagles help their fans and our customers travel safely to their destination.”
