45% of motorists hiring a prestige car would hire to make a special impression at a wedding


London, May 2014 – The latest research* from Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, reveals that nearly half (45%) of those hiring a prestige car would do so to make a great impression for a wedding.  And a third (32%) think a Mercedes-Benz would impress the most for a special occasion like the big day.   With a 20% discount on car hire from Europcar’s Prestige fleet, wedding parties can arrive in luxury and turn heads without facing an eye-watering price tag.


When it comes to the best car to impress for a special occasion like a wedding, Mercedes-Benz won almost a third (32%) of the vote, compared to just a quarter (25%) voting for a limo. And nearly a quarter (23%) would pick a sports coupe to stand out from the crowd.


“Prestige by Europcar offers an impressive choice of some of the most luxurious cars available” said Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group.  “And with 20% off our Prestige fleet**, it’s more affordable than ever to book a weekend in the new Mercedes-Benz CLS coupe or high spec, sporty numbers from Audi, MINI Cooper and BMW.


“There’s no need to worry about getting to the church on time, as most of our vehicles are fitted with satnav to ensure a stress-free journey.  Plus, Prestige by Europcar customers benefit from free delivery and collection for the ultimate no hassle service. Whatever the role on the big day, from bride or groom to the bride’s mother or family guest – Prestige by Europcar will help to make a real statement.  ”
