Europcar extends its footprint at UK Airports

Europcar, the European leader in car hire services for business and leisure users, is investing in the expansion of its UK branch network to extend the availability and accessibility of vehicle hire across the country.  Already with the greatest airport footprint in the UK, Europcar has recently opened three new locations at regional airports – Omagh, Gloucester and Anglesey.

“These new locations at key regional airports mark the significant and ongoing investment in our network, ensuring we continue to provide both leisure and business travellers with the ultimate in choice and flexibility,” explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK.  “Air travellers in particular need as much help as possible in reducing the stress of the airport experience and by providing access to our services at more of the UK’s small regional airports we believe we are helping them achieve that.”

Europcar offers a range of services that reflect its understanding of the particular stresses of air travel.  These include Airport Connect which enables customers to hire a vehicle from their local Europcar location, leave it at the airport branch and then take the courtesy coach directly to the terminal.  Europcar ‘Meet & Greet’ enables customers to be met at the airport or train station with their hire car.  And Europcar Arrive and Drive, available at Heathrow Airport Terminals 1 and 5, helps customers bypass the queues by completing their paperwork at a dedicated desk, allowing them drive away in their hire car waiting outside the Arrivals Hall.

“Lugging heavy bags by public transport, or worrying where to park a car on or off airport isn’t the best way for travellers to kick-off a trip” continued Ken McCall.  “But by using our Airport Connect service, travellers can be sure that they get a vehicle that’s large enough to take all their luggage and family comfortably.  And it ensures travellers arrive at the airport relaxed and ready for their holiday.  Plus our unique freeDeliver service – which provides free delivery of a hire car to a customer’s home* - further reinforces our commitment to give back time to our customers.

“Europcar has the largest car hire network in the UK and this investment forms part of our commitment to bringing Europcar customers the widest choice of vehicles and flexibility of services, designed to get them on the road at the most competitive rates.”
