The hotel stays of Victoria visitors just got easier with the launch of the MY STAY. MY CAR.™ rental car and hotel room package. Beginning immediately, guests staying at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Victoria can select a Toyota Prius with their guest room for an additional $20 per night and receive complimentary parking. The program is powered by share economy pioneer, Turo, that just launched in British Columbia today.
The process is easy. Within 24 hours of arrival, guests can book direct through the hotel’s website or by calling reservations (1-800-774-1500) and asking for the MY STAY. MY CAR.™ package. When the guest arrives, they complete a one-page rental agreement, check-in, and are provided with two keys for their stay: their room and their car.
“With so many travelers arriving to Victoria’s Inner Harbour on foot via float plane or ferry,” said Francis Mairet, principal of Mairet Hotels who manage the Victoria property, “we’re thrilled our hotel is able to offer them this easy, convenient and cost effective way to explore our city.”
As many of Victoria’s attractions are outside of the downtown core, having a car allows travelers to easily access popular locations such as Victoria’s Butchart Garden’s or Willows beach. The DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel & Suites Victoria is the first hotel to offer Turo car service to its guests. All other Turo listed cars are through independent car rental companies or individual car owners.
Turo announced today that its car sharing marketplace is officially available in British Columbia, expanding to a new Canadian province for the first time since its launch in Alberta, Ontario and Quebec in April 2016. A pioneer of the sharing economy and travel industry, Turo connects local car owners with a bustling community of local and international travelers looking for the perfect vehicle for their next adventure. Turo has over four million users across the world, including 220,000 users in Canada alone. The launch of Turo in British Columbia marks an important step in realizing Turo’s mission to put Canada’s 23 million cars to better use and to capture a growing share of the Canadian travel market. www.turo.com
