Europcar, the UK's leading car hire company is going the
extra mile to take the hassle out of its customers' travel plans as
the travel industry recovers from the effects of the volcanic ash
To help with the situation Europcar has made a huge effort to re-distribute its
fleet to where its services are needed most by focusing on ferry ports, specifically
along the Southern coast of the UK, and into Central London where a surge in demand
Additionally, Europcar is reminding
customers needing to travel to Mainland Europe from the UK that it provides a
straightforward and safe option with its rentals. With its EuropDrive package, customers are fully covered against breakdown overseas, provided with RAC
driving abroad advice and breakdown contact numbers as well as a VE103 form.
EuropDrive be booked online or at the station when picking up the car, however all
cars will need to be returned to the UK.
Additional flexibility is also being offered for travellers whose plans remain
unsure. Customers who have chosen to pay on collection and whose travel plans change
are able to cancel their booking free of charge up to two hours before the rental is
due to start.
Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director at Europcar UK, added, "It has been a very
difficult time for British holidaymakers and business travellers, but also Britons
back in the UK who will have seen a ripple effecting national transport. The
repercussions of the last week's airspace ban are expected to continue in the weeks
ahead as airlines, ferries and trains clear the backlog of passengers, and this
means that both those travelling to and from Europe and within the country will
continue to be affected. At times like this the flexibility and convenience offered
by an efficient, first-class car rental service with a fleet as large as Europcar's will be invaluable to getting
British businesses and families back to normal as soon as possible."
