Europcar helps Mum & Dad get students back to university

20% off Van Hire for September and October

London, August 2012 – Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe is helping Mums and Dads across the UK get their children and their belongings back  to university this Autumn with 20% off van hire. With an array of gadgets, furniture and clothes in tow parents often find the family car just isn’t big enough for everything that’s needed for student life. With the latest offer from Europcar hiring a van makes perfect sense, saving up money and eliminating the need for return trips.

Europcar has made the van hire process as easy as possible for parents.  Its website provides tips and advice on its range of vans, helping to find the right vehicle for the job.  It also offers useful driving advice for those unfamiliar with getting behind the wheel of bigger vehicles.  With the added convenience of one-way hire, once they’ve dropped off all the gear, Mum and Dad can jump on the train back home rather than have to face a return drive.

Europcar van hire rates are extremely competitive and now even more so with its ‘Back to University’ 20% discount offer, with hires starting from just £19 per day. With vans available from over 130 locations across the UK, Europcar offers parents the perfect way to get their loved ones belongings from one end of the country to the other, or simply move a few bulky items a couple of miles. Plus, to reduce the stress even further, Europcar can deliver vans to home addresses through its weDeliver delivery and collection service.

“When it’s time to head back to University, there’s always the challenge of getting everything in the family car – or having to do several trips” explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK. “So rather than overloading the car, Mum and Dad can opt for van hire to ensure everything that’s needed can be transported in one easy trip.”

From the small Vauxhall Combo to the Ford Luton box van, Europcar has a choice of vans to suit a wide range of needs. All Europcar vans are fully maintained to manufacturer specifications and covered by 24 hour breakdown, for added peace of mind.

“The minimum age for van hire is 25, so it’s most likely Mum or Dad will have to do the driving” continued Ken McCall. “But Europcar’s wide range of vans, means we have the right vehicle no matter the size of the job and our hire packages also allow customers to hire for an hour, a day, a week or even longer.

“With our 20% discount on van hire throughout September and October, combined with our top tips on safe van driving, we think van hire from Europcar is the perfect answer to ensure students get back to university as cost-effectively and easily as possible.”
