Europcar Mobility Group UK and the Leasing Broker Federation have agreed a new partnership to offer broker members a rental alternative to traditional vehicle leases.
The Leasing Broker Federation (LBF), which is made up of 170 members, supports car leasing brokers and operators across the UK.
Europcar’s long-term solutions are designed to complement existing traditional 2-4-year lease contracts by providing customers with a range of short and mid-term alternatives.
Falling under the Europcar Long Term Solutions product range, SuperFlex provides consumers with hire options from 28 to 84 days whilst Flex+ delivers a new vehicle for time periods anywhere from three to 18 months.
Clive Forsythe, Europcar Mobility Group UK sales and marketing director, explained: “We are pleased to announce a new and exciting partnership between the Leasing Broker Federation and Europcar Mobility Group UK.
“Europcar’s portfolio of products aim to provide our customers with more choice and freedom when making their next mobility decisions. Our Flex+ and SuperFlex products present customers with the latest vehicle makes and models without the cost of ownership, hefty deposits or the burden of a lengthy lease.”
Leasing Broker Federation (LBF) relationships director Graham Prince added: “We have worked hard alongside Europcar Mobility Group UK to launch the partnership with the Leasing Broker Federation and I am delighted that our leasing broker members are now able to offer these products to their customers.
“This is a very important partnership for the LBF and, with the launch of more products to come, this will continue to add value to our Members enabling them to deliver more services to their customers."
The agreement comes days after Europcar launched a ‘Deliver and Collect’ service for business and private customers, reflecting the growth in home deliveries during Covid-19.
The new product has been introduced alongside a ‘Click and Collect’ service, which will also provide customers with the ability to bypass the need to enter a rental station to pick up a vehicle.
