London, July 2011 – Holidaymakers can now save extra cash on their summer break with the discount deals from Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe. Europcar is offering up to 25% discount on car hire in the UK and up to 15% discount in Europe. UK travellers can head to the coast for a dip in the sea or take a day trip to the countryside, whilst those going further afield can take advantage of a hire car to get the most out of their trip.  And, with a recent report suggesting that more than a million motorists have given up using their own car because of costs, hiring a car on a holiday trip could make good economic sense too.


With the money saved from Europcar’s new car hire discounts holidaymakers could afford to have an extra few days away or invite more of the family along for their summer adventure. It’s all part of Europcar’s goal to make car hire more affordable for today’s cash-strapped holidaymakers, getting them on their way to a stress free summer.


“We’re already aiming to save our customers an hour in their day with our unique freeDeliver service”, explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK. “Now we’re aiming to save them money too with these budget-busting discounts. 


“The cost of going on holiday has increased over the years, and many families are already facing a lot of financial stress before even arriving at their destination.   We want to make it easier for travellers to hire a car during the Summer without breaking the bank. And hiring a car for the long holiday trip could make good economic sense – saving on wear and tear on the family car.”


With effect from 01/07/11, Europcar customers can take advantage of the ’up to 25% off UK hire and 15% off European hire’ discounts.  And this applies both to vehicles collected from a Europcar location and those delivered to the customer’s home as part of its freeDeliver service.


freeDeliver offers Europcar customers the convenience of free delivery and collection to their home address, within a 15 mile radius of the nearest Europcar location. Customers can have their car delivered to any address within an agreed one hour window, so there’s no waiting around and Europcar collects it at the end of the booking – no hassle, no charge.  Valid for all bookings for two days or more, no other car hire company offers such a service. 


Plus Europcar offers the most flexible pick up and drop off locations and services in the UK, with an outstanding fleet of family and prestige vehicles, and extended opening hours for selected branches.


“Europcar’s nationwide network means we’re an average of just 20 minutes away from every customer, making access to our vehicles as easy as possible”, concluded Ken McCall.  “So our customers can experience the ultimate convenience this summer – at a great price.”


Customers can access the deal by logging onto www.europcar.co.uk.
