Europcar Offers Customers A Tenner For Fuel
on: August 11, 2009, 3:03 pm
Europcar, the UK's leading vehicle hire company is giving
customers a £10 voucher towards their next hire if they bring their car
back with more than a quarter of a tank of fuel.
The offer applies to customers who bought a full tank of fuel at the start of the
hire, taking advantage of just one of Europcar's car hire deals, including Europcar's
competitive rate per litre, 5p under the average high street pump price.
"Customers have told us they like the option of buying fuel up front as it saves
them the hassle of re-fuelling the vehicle at the end of the hire and also means
they receive a good rate at a time when fuel costs are rising again", said Catriona
Lougher, Marketing Director of car hire firm Europcar.
"However, there are occasions when the customer has not used as much fuel as they
anticipated and this can cause some dissatisfaction. As it would be difficult to
calculate the exact reimbursement cost for any fuel left in the car, we have decided
to offer a £10 voucher towards their next hire. This is all part of our commitment
to make vehicle hire from Europcar accessible, straightforward and cost-effective
for our customers."
This new offer is being announced alongside a host of other activities by the
company, including the launch of 'Hot Summer Tweets', the new Europcar Twitter
campaign to help engage customers during the
peak summer months, and a competition to win a 5 star weekend break by signing up to
the Europcar newsletter.
