Europcar slashes prices in end of summer sale

Europcar slashes prices in end of summer sale

With little evidence of sunshine over the last few weeks, Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe is hoping to brighten the plans of any last minute holidaymakers.  Europcar is offering up to 40% discount on car hire in the UK for the last few weeks of the Summer holidays, including the Bank Holiday weekend.

The Europcar sale means UK travellers can make significant savings on car hire in late August and September.  All the great deals in the Europcar ‘End of Summer’ Sale can be found on

UK travellers can head to the coast for a dip in the sea or take a day trip to the countryside, whilst those going further afield can take advantage of a hire car to get the most out of their trip.  And, with a recent report suggesting that more than a million motorists have given up using their own car because of costs, hiring a car on a holiday trip could make good economic sense too.

“We’re already aiming to save our customers an hour in their day with our unique freeDeliver service”, explained Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar Group UK. “And we’re saving them money too with these budget-busting discounts.  Plus hiring a car for a long holiday trip could make good economic sense – saving on wear and tear on the family car.”

With effect from 22/08/11 Europcar customers can take advantage of the ’up to 40% off UK hire discounts, including over the Bank Holiday weekend.  And this applies both to vehicles collected from a Europcar location and those delivered to the customer’s home as part of its freeDeliver service.


freeDeliver offers Europcar customers the convenience of free delivery and collection to their home address, within a 15 mile radius of the nearest Europcar location. Customers can have their car delivered to any address within an agreed one hour window, so there’s no waiting around and Europcar collects it at the end of the booking – no hassle, no charge.  Valid for all bookings for two days or more, no other car hire company offers such a service.
