London, August 2011 – Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, is keeping businesses on the move with an innovative new service that tackles the issues that company fleets face when waiting for new vehicle delivery.  6 Advantage offers vehicle hire for a fixed period of six months, but with all the benefits of short-term car hire.  This latest initiative reflects Europcar’s sustained commitment to bring corporate customers services that respond to the changing needs of the marketplace, delivering flexible and cost effective car hire solutions.

 

“Currently there is a real gap in the solutions available to fleets when ordering new vehicles” explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK.  “Short-term vehicle hire would not be cost-effective for what can often be as much as 6 months waiting for new vehicle delivery.  And leasing requires a longer-term commitment from a business that is equally unsuitable.  We have therefore created 6 Advantage to fill that gap.”

 

6 Advantage offers businesses a real alternative to car leasing, making it the perfect solution for drivers waiting for their new company car or for employees on secondment. Customers can choose from a range of vehicles in the colour of their choice, including estates, compacts, hatchbacks and vans.

 

Businesses can order as many 6 Advantage vehicles as they require, allowing them to benefit from cost savings through Europcar’s fixed rates. All 6 Advantage vehicles are brand new, so there’s no servicing or MOT needed and all vehicles come with 24 hour breakdown roadside assistance and recovery.

 

6 Advantage includes delivery and collection and a 12,000 mile contract on each vehicle. Customers also benefit from monthly billing and customised monthly reporting, as required.  With one telephone number and a dedicated team for all queries, vehicle booking is fast and efficient.

 

“We understand that our corporate customers need access to a range of car hire solutions designed to offer them flexibility and reduce fleet costs,” continued Ken McCall.  “We have designed 6 Advantage to provide competitive fixed rates on six month contracts, offering the benefits of short-term hire at cost-effective rates.  We believe this gives corporate fleets the best quality Europcar service as an affordable alternative to leasing.”
