Daily Rental & Car Sharing
Fleet managers are under increasing pressure to source cost-efficient, clean air-compliant vehicles that match the mobility demands of their organisation. And it’s nonsensical to commit to lengthy lease deals or outright vehicle purchase when funds are better placed elsewhere, thanks to an economy marred by instability.
Europcar Mobility Group UK recognises that flexible mobility solutions provide a viable alternative to help keep staff on the road – whether it’s ultra-short-term car use by the hour; traditional daily rental; flexible, long-term hire or a combination of all.
Without the pressure of upfront costs and a choice of contract lengths, through a long term hire offering ranging from a minimum of 3 to 12 months plus, Europcar Advantage means employers can give staff access to the latest models, while staying in control of their costs – and without tying up capital. Plus businesses can ‘try before they buy’, testing out what will be right for their future mobility needs without having to make a long-term financial commitment. And a holistic view of the entire process, from the initial booking to the vehicle return, is delivered through Europcar One to improve efficiency and manage costs.
There’s no escaping the fact that fleet management is becoming more and more influenced by environmental policy and the wider debate about vehicle emissions. Increasingly stringent legislation and pressure on manufacturers to produce cleaner vehicles, coupled with growing public awareness of the issue, is slowly encouraging more and more drivers and businesses to consider alternatively-fuelled vehicles.
Taking the plunge and investing in an entirely new fleet of hybrid or electric vehicles is not a decision to be taken lightly. As with any business decision of this scale it is prudent to do your research and, where possible, trial a new strategy before implementing it in full.
Flexible rental arrangements, such as those offered by Thrifty’s FlexiFleet, offer fleet managers an ideal opportunity to ‘try before you buy’. Choose from our range of hybrid and plug-in hybrid options which offer a perfect first step towards investing in a cleaner fleet.
FlexiFleet’s long-term rentals are for one month plus with no termination penalties after the first month. This enables you to trial a range of different vehicles, canvass staff opinion, and slowly phase out your old fleet over a period of time that suits your business needs – all without the associated constraints of a long-term lease or finance agreement.
