Driving to collect a hire van can be the slowest part of the process, especially if you have to battle through rush hour traffic.
To help customers save time in queues, Europcar will deliver and collect your rental van to your home or office.
Here’s what Robert Shaw, Operations Director, Europcar UK Group, had to say about the new service:
“Our research shows that 58% of people waste up to an hour a day and traffic is cited as the most annoying waste of time. With the latest enhancements to our Deliver & Collect service, now including delivery and collection at workplaces as well as home addresses, we’re helping busy travellers get back some of that wasted time.
“We will do the tedious job of sitting in a traffic jam – which means our customers can get on with their journey as soon as the car or van arrives. And there’s no hassle at the end of the trip either – we will collect the vehicle too. No other national rental company offers such a convenient service.”
This service costs £5 for addresses that are within 10 miles of the nearest Europcar branch. For addresses more than 10 miles away, there is an additional charge of £1.50 per mile.
Bookings must be made 24 hours in advance for delivery to a business address and customers will need to provide an extra form of ID or photo ID, plus proof of home address. Usual age restrictions apply.
