Thrifty becomes the AFL's Official Hire Car Partner

06 December 2016

MEDIA RELEASE FROM THE AUSTRALIAN FOOTBALL LEAGUE

 
The AFL is pleased to announce Thrifty as the Official Hire Car partner for the next three years.
 
Thrifty also becomes the partner hire car provider to AFL Travel, the platform where fans can purchase travel packages to Toyota AFL Premiership Season matches.
 
AFL General Manager Darren Birch welcomed the partnership with Thrifty.
 
"We're excited that Thrifty is partnering with the AFL for the next three years as the official hire car provider," Mr Birch said.
 
"Our fans will also benefit from this partnership thanks to AFL Travel, where Thrifty's extensive fleet network across Australia will provide better mobility when purchasing travel packages with car hire included," he said.
 
Thrifty CEO Tom Mooney said: "There aren't many places in Australia where the sport of AFL is not played and enjoyed."
 
"With our extensive network across Australia we are well positioned to support both the game and the fans. We are developing some great packages for the AFL community that will enable them to easily get to games - no matter how far from home," Mr Mooney said.
 
Western Bulldogs captain, Bob Murphy, helped launch Thrifty's partnership at AFL House in Melbourne and media can obtain images from the announcement via return email.
 
Fans can purchase AFL Travel packages to 2017 Toyota AFL Premiership Season matches, including match tickets, now via afltravel.com.au
