The service is being launched first in the UK from four key locations – London Heathrow, Manchester, Edinburgh airports and the Europcar Mobility Centre at ExCeL London. Customers will be able to return their hire car at any of these key locations.
“As Europe’s leading car hire provider, Europcar is constantly developing ways to make the journey with us easy and stress free”, explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group. “ToMyCar harnesses the latest mobile technology to put our customers in control of the car hire process. They can locate and unlock their hire car with their smartphone, eliminating the need for picking up the keys at the desk and returning them after the hire. ToMyCar is the latest service from Europcar, designed to keep our customers on the road with maximum convenience and minimum delay.”
ToMyCar offers customers a VW Golf 7, 1.6D, with an all inclusive package including Zero Excess, Sat Nav, Mobile Wi-Fi and roadside assistance. Customers can book their vehicle by visiting europcar.co.uk/tomycar. Once the reservation is made, travellers receive a confirmation email, plus an email with a link to download the ToMyCar app for their mobile device, along with their login and passwords*.
Busy travellers no longer need to visit the counter to pick up or return their Europcar vehicle. The ToMyCar app provides a map, highlighting the pick-up location of the vehicle allowing customers to go straight to their hire car. They are then able to access their vehicle using their downloaded key via their smartphone. Any vehicle damage can be recorded by the customer and reported via the ToMyCar app, before they open the doors and begin their journey.
