Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe, is
keeping businesses on the move with an innovative new service that
tackles the issues that company fleets face when waiting for new
6 Advantage offers vehicle hire for a fixed period of six months, but with all the
benefits of short-term business car hire, reflecting
Europcar's sustained commitment to bring corporate customers services that reflect
the changing needs of the marketplace, delivering flexible and cost effective car
"Currently there is a real gap in the solutions available to fleets when ordering
new vehicles," explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK. "Short-term vehicle hire would not be cost-effective for what can often be as much
as 6 months waiting for new vehicle delivery and leasing requires a longer-term
commitment from a business that is equally unsuitable. We have therefore created 6
Advantage to fill that gap."
6 Advantage offers businesses a real alternative to car leasing, making it the
perfect solution for drivers waiting for their new company car or for employees on
secondment. Customers can choose from a range of vehicles in the colour of their
choice, including estates, compacts, hatchbacks and vans.
Businesses can order as many 6 Advantage vehicles as they require, allowing them to
benefit from cost savings through Europcar's fixed rates. All 6 Advantage vehicles
are brand new, so there's no servicing or MOT needed and all vehicles come with 24
hour breakdown roadside assistance and recovery.
6 Advantage includes delivery and collection and a 12,000 mile contract on each
vehicle. Customers also benefit from monthly billing and customised monthly
reporting, as required. With one telephone number and a dedicated team for all
queries, vehicle booking is fast and efficient.
"We understand that our corporate customers need access to a range of car hire
solutions designed to offer them flexibility and reduce fleet costs,” continued Ken
McCall. "We have designed 6 Advantage to provide competitive fixed rates on six
month contracts, offering the benefits of short-term hire at cost-effective rates.
We believe this gives corporate fleets the best quality Europcar service as an
affordable alternative to leasing."
