We will make a donation on every successfully completed car rental reservation that comes from anyone who has advised of, or entered your unique ECP Code (East Coast Promotional Code) during the reservations process. This can also be automatically captured from 'links' clicking from your website as well so to ensure that our donation to you is as large as possible. Not only does this help your fundraising, but your members also get great savings from one of Australia's largest independent and premier Car Rental brands, providing the best value and service from multiple locations.

Then fill out the Sponsorship Application Form and we will be in contact with you shortly to advise of your ECP Code and provide you with a variety of Banners, artwork and ideas for your use in promotion.

When and How Do I Receive the Donation?

Donations will be made monthly, provided that the total to be paid is equal to or greater than A$50.00 or whenever the same amount is accumulated. Payments are made at the immediate conclusion of each month and include all rentals that concluded there within.


Do I Get a Donation Every Time Someone Clicks On An East Coast Car Rentals Website?

East Coast Car Rentals will make a donation on completed rentals when they have booked direct via the Sponsorship banner on your site or used your unique ECP Code. No donations will be paid for people simply clicking through to our website, but rather for those who click, make a reservation and then complete their rental.


Can I Get a Donation On My Own Reservations?

Yes. As long as you actually end up renting the car and have booked it by clicking through your banner, you will receive a donation for your own reservation.


How Do I See What I've Earned?

East Coast Car Rentals will provide each participant in the Sponsorship Program with online access to view existing reservations and completed rentals to track donations. To do this all you will need is access to the internet.


What if Reservations Cancel?

Donations are made only on successfully completed rentals, and not just reservations. Donations are only made for every customer who completes a booking via a East Coast Car Rentals Sponsorship banner and link on your web site or using your unique ECP Code in the Reservation Process, and then pays for the rental in full. If a customer chooses to cancel the reservation , does not show up, or if the reservation is not successfully completed, you do not receive any donation. Sorry!


What is a "Successfully Completed" Reservation or Car Rental?

A Successfully Completed Rental is one where someone reserves a vehicle then actually shows up at the rental location, pays rental in full ,rents the vehicle at the times and dates specified, rental is returned and NIL outstanding balance to the Rental Agreement.
