Europcar launches new Duoflex vehicle subscription service for fleets
Europcar Mobility Group UK has launched a new vehicle subscription service, including both cars and vans and with a one-month minimum contract.
It’s dubbed Duoflex and designed to help businesses looking for flexible mobility solutions for employees without making long-term financial commitments – particularly post-pandemic. There’s no penalty clause beyond the initial month’s rental and subscribers are able to change the vehicle each month.
DuoFlex also gives subscribers the facility to select a second vehicle for two days, twice a month, eliminating additional costs when the usual company vehicle isn’t fit for purpose or when a more practical vehicle, such as a van, is needed. It also provides the option to add an additional driver to the subscription, so the usual vehicle can be used by another member of the team.
The service features a wide range of cars and vans, including a choice of electric cars. This means drivers can test an electric vehicle for everyday business use and access an ICE vehicle for longer trips.
“DuoFlex has been developed to take the crystal ball gazing out of fleet planning, providing companies with the flexibility to tackle fluctuating business mobility needs without financial penalty,” said Ron Santiago, managing director, Europcar Mobility Group UK.
“Many businesses right now don’t want to make financial commitments for company vehicles for three or four years; they simply don’t know what they will need. But they need to keep employees mobile. The DuoFlex one-month minimum contract is ideal for these organisations; cash isn’t tied up in lengthy lease agreements. And they can change the vehicle each month as their requirements alter.”
He added: “The addition of DuoFlex to our Long Term Solutions means Europcar can provide even more flexible options to support businesses,” added Santiago. “From independent professionals and small companies to larger corporates, Europcar DuoFlex provides flexibility and cost control, all in one easy-to-manage package. It gives businesses greater control over their costs whilst being able to quickly adapt their fleet to demand.”
