Discount Car & Truck Rentals rents cars and light trucks for business or leisure rental. Discount has over 300 locations across Canada.
Discount Car & Truck Rentals have a strategic partnership with Petro Canada, which provides Discount with thousands of gas savings cards at Petro locations. Discount Car & Truck Rentals wanted to spread joy to potential customers of both during statutory holiday weekends, giving away free gas for the weekend.
Fervent & Discount devised a plan to visit multiple Petro Canada locations on holiday weekends. Each weekend Fervent Events brand ambassadors would be in a branded Discount truck and spend 30 minutes at 10-20 Petro Canada locations, on Thursday before the weekend, and give away free gas cards. If customers tweeted #CountOnDiscount they would be entered to win a Canadian getaway package. Fervent provided liability insurance for each gas station and reps sent live photos to Discount to tweet throughout each activation.
