Tourism giants Village Roadshow Theme Parks and Thrifty Car Rental join forces

11 June 2015

Village Roadshow Theme Parks has announced a new multi-year partnership with Thrifty Car Rental which will be sure to benefit the tourism industry on the Gold Coast.

The partnership will provide tourists travelling to the Gold Coast with the ability to arrange their car rental and theme park tickets in the one location, meaning more time to spend enjoying their holiday. There will also be a great range of compelling offers available including discounted tickets for Thrifty customers and discounted car rental for Village Roadshow Theme Park visitors.

Thrifty will also act as presenting partner of selected attractions at the iconic Gold Coast theme parks, including the Hollywood Stunt Driver 2 show at Warner Bros. Movie World, Jet Rescue Coaster at Sea World, the AquaLoop at Wet'n'Wild Gold Coast plus a signature attraction at Wet'n'Wild Sydney.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks Chief Marketing Officer, Tony McMaster said there is a great synergy between the two tourism operators especially here on the Gold Coast.

"Village Roadshow Theme Parks provides our guests with the opportunity to enjoy the highest standards of quality, fun and entertainment available in world-class theme parks. We are excited to be joining forces with another tourism industry leader in Thrifty Australia, which will be sure to make a positive impact on our guest's overall experience," Mr McMaster said

"An exciting element to this partnership will be the integration of the Thrifty branding into Hollywood Stunt Driver 2 at Warner Bros. Movie World with the revamped show featuring Thrifty branded vehicles, sets and action."

Thrifty Australia CEO, Tom Mooney said this is a great way for Thrifty to be able to offer an additional service to our customers to take the hassle out of their holiday by picking up their theme park tickets at the Thrifty counter, leaving them more time to enjoy the family fun the theme parks offer.

"Thrifty is proud of our extensive franchisee network, so we really know your local area, and our franchisee based on the Gold Coast is delighted to see the Thrifty brand come to life in the show," Mr Mooney said.
