The Two Companies Were Among 6,000 Delegates from U.S. Travel Organizations
DENVER, Colo. (May 24, 2018) – As part of the growing strategic alliance between EagleRider, the world’s largest motorcycle rental and travel company, and Harley-Davidson, the two companies attended the U.S. Travel Association’s IPW show in Denver this week. IPW is the travel industry’s premier international marketplace and the largest generator of travel to the U.S.
EagleRider and Harley-Davidson are making it more accessible than ever for global travelers to experience some of America’s most iconic roads and destinations on a legendary Harley-Davidson® motorcycle.
“We look forward to participating in IPW every year and we were thrilled to have Harley-Davidson join us this year,” said Chris McIntyre, CEO and Co-founder of EagleRider. “Our companies have been working diligently alongside the H-D® dealer network to launch a first-of-its-kind network of motorcycle rental locations and we were proud to showcase this to the distinguished members of the U.S. Travel Association.”
Throughout the show, EagleRider and Harley-Davidson continued to demonstrate to global travel industry delegates the benefits of the alliance and even provided an opportunity for attendees, riders and non-riders alike, to experience the thrill of motorcycling for themselves on Harley-Davidson’s JUMPSTART™ riding simulator.
In 2017, EagleRider became the Exclusive U.S. Provider of Rentals & Tours for Harley-Davidson. With this alliance, international travelers have more options than ever before to have a truly authentic American adventure on an all-new Harley-Davidson® bike.
“The alliance with EagleRider has created seamless touring opportunities for travelers to realize their dream of riding across the U.S. on a Harley-Davidson® motorcycle,” said Anoop Prakash, Director of U.S. Retail Development at Harley-Davidson Motor Company. “Our national network of Harley-Davidson® dealers stand ready to welcome riders from around the world to deliver an unforgettable experience.”
Recently, the two brands reached an industry milestone of activating EagleRider rental locations in more than 100 Harley-Davidson® dealerships throughout the United States, creating the largest connected network of motorcycle rental and tour locations.
The expanded network allows riders to begin and end their two-wheeled adventures almost anywhere in the United States. Every EagleRider/Harley-Davidson® dealership location can set riders up with guided tours, daily rentals and Club EagleRider membership opportunities.
Through the alliance, EagleRider exclusively uses current model year Harley-Davidson® motorcycles for its Touring and Large Cruiser motorcycle rental segments, equipped with Harley-Davidson® Genuine Motor Parts and Accessories. Harley-Davidson works with EagleRider to provide rental, travel and tour experiences from its U.S dealership network.
