Organising a timely get away at the start of a holiday is a challenge in itself even without having to arrange to pick up the hire car.That’s why Europcar, the UK’s leading vehicle rental company, is offering free delivery and collection for car and van hire with their weDeliver service. Forget pizzas, groceries and Indian takeaways, holiday-makers can now phone and get a car delivered to their door within a guaranteed 2 hour time window!
Tapping into a growing ‘pay as you go’ culture, Europcar’s free delivery and collection service is designed to make car hire much more accessible and convenient at a time when people are looking for a safe and convenient way to get away in the UK. The service is available for car and van hire of more than 2 days.
Unlike competitors where the customer has to be taken back to the rental location or car clubs where the car has to be collected or returned to a designated parking spot, Europcar will deliver the car to the customer’s door ensuring their holiday can begin without delay. At the end of the hire, the car will be collected and taken back to the location.
Delivery and collection is free for the first 10 miles and after that a per-mile charge of just £1.50 will be applied. The service is available from 152 of Europcar’s 197 locations (excludes London and airports where good transport links make collecting a vehicle easier for consumers). Once booked by phone on 0871 384 1087, the car or van will be delivered to the customer’s home within the 2 hour time slots from Monday to Friday and Saturday morning.
“The timing for this couldn’t be better”, says Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director for Europcar. “We know our customers want convenience, value and a simple, no nonsense car hire service. With household budgets stretched, and reports that more of us will be staying in the UK this year, car hire is really coming into its own – whether it’s for a bigger, more reliable vehicle for a holiday or to replace a second family car.
“While we have a strong network of locations that puts us on average just 20 minutes away from every customer, the time and logistics needed to collect a vehicle can be a barrier, especially when you have luggage and children to get organised too. By removing the need to collect the car we are opening up car hire to a much wider range of customers. This is all part of Europcar’s drive to become the UK’s most consumer focused car hire company giving customers their car, their way. “
