Reflecting its understanding of the time pressures on travellers - especially
independent business travellers - Privilege provides members with crucial
time-saving benefits. It eliminates queuing and paperwork and guarantees
reservations. Plus, as well as saving money on car hire, Privilege members have
access to discounts from other premium services from Europcar partners, offering
loyal customers the ultimate reward scheme.
Travellers simply sign-up online on Europcar's website to earn Privilege activity
points. From the very first hire members are part of the Privilege Club, receiving
guaranteed reservations as well as a 10% discount on leisure rates and special rates
at participating Accor Hotels and access to the Accor loyalty programme. Privilege
Club also offers an express pick-up service for convenient car hire.
Once members have completed 10 hires in a year they join Privilege Executive and
their benefits increase. These include a 20% discount on leisure hires, plus free
upgrades, subject to availability. For members booking more than 25 hires per
year, membership to Privilege Elite is offered. This provides a 30% discount on
leisure rates, one free weekend hire per year, free additional driver and more
benefits from Accor Hotels, making it the ultimate reward scheme for business
Privilege members can view their personal account at any time by logging on to the
Europcar website to check their bookings.
"We know how crucial it is for all travellers– but especially business travellers –
to be able to get on with their journey as quickly and cost-effectively as
possible," explained Ken McCall, managing director, Europcar UK.
"We have therefore designed Privilege to give them the ultimate convenience, as
well as thank them for their loyalty and the trust they place in us every day,
throughout our worldwide network. Through the 'get more by hiring more'
principle, Privilege offers our customers the best quality service while
systematically thanking them each time they hire with Europcar."
