In an exclusive agreement with Volkswagen, Europcar UK Group is the only UK car rental organisation to offer the Volkswagen Tiguan as part of its fleet in 2008. 100 Volkswagen Tiguan 2 litre TDI S models are now available for rent from Europcars Heathrow and Gatwick locations.
Awareness of the vehicles availability is being supported by an e-marketing campaign which drives searches in Google for Tiguan to the Europcar booking site. Here, customers can book the Tiguan as a specific vehicle rather than a car group. Alternatively customers can book the car through Europcars central reservation line.
Michael McInerney, Fleet Operations Director said This is all part of our commitment to work closely with car manufacturers to bring our customers the latest models and widest choice of vehicles to meet their needs. We are delighted Volkswagen has selected Europcar to showcase the new Tiguan. A compact 4×4, the Tiguan is suitable for both urban and rural driving making it a very flexible and attractive rental option. We are placing the vehicles in two of our busiest locations serving inbound business and leisure customers.
The Tiguan is also set to join Europcars fleet in France, Portugal, Belgium, Italy and Switzerland.
Bookings can be made at: 0845 758 5375 or www.europcar.co.uk.
