With the latest fuel tax hike adding to the mounting costs motorists face, Europcar, the UK’s leading vehicle hire organisation is offering a up to 20% discount on all hires for cars and vans this Spring – enabling people to get out on the road for less, whether for day trips, Spring breaks or day to day journeys.
In recent years, motorists have been hit hard by rising costs for insurance, fuel, servicing and tax – with many now finding themselves priced off the road. Hiring offers a solution for those cash-strapped households looking to reduce their motoring costs, and can offer benefits when compared to alternatives such as car clubs. With the up to 20% discount on car hire this Spring, hiring from Europcar can help make motoring affordable for those feeling the pinch.
The 20% discount on hires can also benefit those holidaying in the UK. Households who have chosen to downsize the main family car can hire something more spacious for family trips. And those going on day trips with friends and family this Spring can reduce the cost of petrol and parking by travelling in one larger vehicle.
Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director for Europcar UK Group says: “Saving money is top of everyone’s priorities and our up to 20% discount makes hiring an even more cost-effective solution for motorists. As well as offering an alternative to ownership, car hire offers greater flexibility than car clubs – with no membership fees, mileage limits and the option of delivery and collection. For families travelling in the UK for a holiday, hiring also saves wear and tear on their own vehicle, provides a more spacious alternative to a smaller car and above all, offers greater reliability with 24 hour roadside assistance for peace of mind. In addition, Europcars nationwide network of over 200 locations means were an average of just 20 minutes away from every customer, making access to our vehicles as easy as possible.”The up to 20% discount is available on all reservations made from April 6 2009 to May 3 2009 for pick ups between April 6 2009 and May 31 2009.
