London, April 2012 Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, has confirmed its commitment to keeping businesses moving throughout the period of the London Olympics and Paralympics. The company is implementing a number of initiatives to ensure its cars and commercial vehicles are available for hire from accessible locations throughout the Games, as well as making pick-up and returns for customers as easy as possible.
Businesses in the Capital are going to feel the impact of the Olympic Games, with anticipated road closures and pressures on all transport creating testing conditions. Europcar is, however, busy behind the scenes, preparing for London 2012 to ensure businesses can keep their people and goods on the move.
Europcar has the largest car hire network in the UK and the whole team is working to ensure we can keep UK commerce moving during the Olympics and Paralympics this Summer, said Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group
We are reviewing opening times and fleet availability for all our locations likely to be affected by road closures and diversions during the Games. We will also be proactively contacting all our business customers to ensure they know how they can access our services during this time. Plus we are implementing processes to maintain our high levels of service and turn-around of vehicles.
It will be a tremendously exciting time for
London and the surrounding areas but we know it will also be very challenging for businesses who need to keep on the move. We are therefore putting focused resource to ensure they can continue to access our high quality car hire services.
