Europcar is offering customers up to 20% off car and van hire this autumn with the option of free delivery and collection with Europcar's weDeliver*.
Europcar offers the UK's widest range of car hire (http://www.europcar.co.uk/ ), from compact city runarounds to saloons, estates and MPVs. All cars are on average six months old and covered by 24 hour roadside assistance. Europcar also offers a range of vans from the Ford Connect for smaller jobs to the large LDV Maxus equipped with a tail-lift.
To take advantage of this fantastic offer customers simply book by calling 0871 384 1089 or via the Europcar website. Alternatively, customers can book via Europcar's on the go mobile service - which allows customers to make reservations and find their nearest hire location, all from their mobile phone by simply logging on to mobile car hire (http://mobile.europcar.co.uk ) website.
Catriona Lougher, marketing director for Europcar UK Group, said: "Autumn is a great time to get away, most attractions are still open for business, but the big crowds have gone so our autumn car hire deals (http://www.europcar.co.uk/EBE/module/render/special-offers ) is the perfect excuse to make an escape without breaking the bank. And with the offer extending to vans, it's easy to do a spot of DIY or get a new sofa-bed home before the relatives arrive for Christmas."
Notes to Editors

Once booked by phone on 0871 384 1087, the car or van will be delivered to the customer's home within the two hour time slots from Monday to Friday and Saturday morning. Terms and conditions apply.
