I’m a student in my final year of business school in Aix-en-Provence, and I’ve used Europcar 3 times before when I needed to rent a car. Every time, I was happy with the experience!
The first studio
2 years ago, I discovered the advantages of renting for the first time when I moved to Aix for my studies. I had just turned 21 years and had been licenced for 2 years, but I didn’t have a car. So I needed a small van to move my things from my parents’ house in Clermont-Ferrand to my first studio in Aix-en-Provence.
It was the first time that I used a car hire company. After checking out a lot of websites, I went with Europcar, because its 150 locations in France ensured me that there would be the presence and support of a network of professionals. The many comments on social networks and forums also had a positive influence on my choice. And I especially didn’t want any unwelcome surprises with the final amount on the bill.
And, a clever addition, the space calculator tool allowed me to choose the exact size van I needed to fit all my boxes. I made the 400-km trip with an almost new Partner. To be safe, I had opted for the “Maxi Move” option with unlimited mileage, which would allow me to pick up the van in Clermont and get to Aix.
Holidays with friends
I went back to Europcar a few months later, when I went on holiday with my 3 best friends for a week of camping and surfing in Hossegor, in the Landes.
Because I was so happy with my first experience using Europcar, I went back to the site (that’s always also simple to use) and I was able to chat with an operator and quickly get answers on prices and included mileage.
We were able to choose an affordable car – actually almost new – that was perfectly suited for our budget of student campers! I was even able to take advantage of a special offer, which is always nice when you’re watching your budget! And even when you compare options with other sites, there’s nothing better in terms of mileage, equipment or insurance…
Between surfing, nights on the beach and encounters we had at the campsite, the car was never far away and even today, this holiday is still one of the best we’ve ever had. And now, with the same group of friends, we’re thinking about going to Spain soon to check out the Barcelona area…
The birthday surprise
Good things always happen in threes: because the first two experiences were so successful, I was naturally drawn to europcar.fr when, at the last minute, we wanted to plan a surprise birthday party for my mother. A 60th birthday doesn’t happen every day and my sisters and I wanted to mark the occasion in a special way.
This time, since I got caught the same day, I made my reservation from my phone. I didn’t go anywhere else: thanks to my account, my information was already saved, and I made the reservation in just a few clicks, in less than 10 minutes.
I went straight to pick up the vehicle at the office, with the documents I already had on me, and didn’t even have to wait before finding myself behind the wheel of a late model Peugeot 207 with all the options: on my way, able to listen to my own playlist for example, that’s awesome! The same evening and some 400 kilometres later, we were able to surprise my mother, who thus was able to see the family reunited on her 60th birthday. That’s something she’ll never forget.
So I don’t know exactly when I’ll rent a car next, but for me it’s clear, Europcar is always there for good times!
