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 cloud.
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 is expected.
Additionally, Europcar (http://www.europcar.co.uk/) 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 (http://www.europcar.co.uk/EBE/module/booking/FirstStepPromotion.do?promoId=6c316f56021e0e777f463e3a38072563) 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 (http://www.europcar.co.uk/) with a fleet as large as Europcar's will be invaluable to getting British businesses and families back to normal as soon as possible."
