Today and every day, we are committed to maintaining the highest cleaning standards in the industry. Now more than ever, our customers and partners deserve to know that we back that promise with our Complete Clean Pledge. Taking into account the recommendations of health authorities and in partnership with the United States tourism industry, we are committed to exceeding our already rigorous cleaning protocols, including strict disinfection procedures to protect the health and safety of all.
While always we have had a very formal training process that instructed all employees on the proper cleaning of a vehicle, employees are now being trained to implement new and more comprehensive regulations that include a better cleaning guide for vehicles, shuttle buses and offices, as well as social distancing practices.
Each of our vehicles is thoroughly cleaned between every rental and backed with the Complete Clean Pledge. This includes washing, vacuuming, general wipe down and sanitizing with a disinfectant that meets leading health authority requirements, with particular attention to more than 20-plus high-touch points including:
1. Key / key fob
2. Steering wheel
3. Steering column
4. Seat belts
5. Center console
6. Door interiors
7. Door pockets
8. Exterior door handles
9. Seat pockets / seat surfaces
10. Areas between seats & consoles
11. Areas between seats & doorjambs
12. Cupholders / compartments
13. Instrument panel
14. Accessory panel / touchscreen
15. Rearview mirror / side mirrors
16. Visors / visor mirrors
17. Dashboard / vents
18. Gear stick / gear shift19. Trunk release
20. Among any other high-touch areas
We also have measures in place to immediately isolate and quarantine any vehicle if needed.
The Complete Clean Pledge extends to our locations, as well. This includes frequently sanitizing touchable surfaces with disinfectant throughout the day. These include counter tops, phones, tablet devices, payment devices, door handles, among other high-touch areas.
The cleaning guidance set forth in the Complete Clean Pledge is also aligned with the U.S Travel Association’s (USTA) “Travel in the New Normal” guidance.
Today – and every day – the safety and wellbeing of employees and customers is our top priority. We continue to take proactive steps to ensure we are doing our part to support our employees and our broader community, while recognizing our important role as an essential service provider.
For those working in our locations, we remain absolutely committed to providing them with a consistent and safer work environment during these unpredictable and challenging times. We are encouraging employees to follow health authority best practices like frequent hand washing and staying home if they are feeling ill.
We’ve also taken additional steps to ensure groups are practicing increased social distancing efforts while working, including limiting the number of employees at a location or within vehicles, avoiding large gatherings of employees, and encouraging employees to maintain distance from others whenever possible.
