Europcar expands chauffer services in Europe

The driver service uses the benefits of Brunel’s technology platform, which it bought in 2016.

Europcar continues to develop its new driver service, using the benefits of Brunel’s technology platform which it bought in 2016, to provide its customers with “a seamless end to end global travel solution”.

Customers can now book a chauffeur for the first and last kilometres of their trips in some European countries, with the service soon to be available across the Europcar network.

This can be used for a quick transfer between the train station and the airport, for example, or to factor in a few hours of shopping between two flights, and the service is accessible on the car hire company’s general website.

“Europcar Global Driver Services fulfils the Europcar brand promise for customers who look for a professional driver to transport them,” said Sheila Struyck, managing director of the Europcar New Mobility Business Unit.

“Allowing customers to book chauffeur transportation for the same trip simplifies travel planning and will allow them to feel completely relaxed when travelling.”

She added: “Business and leisure travellers trust Europcar for its high standards in terms of service and its vision of new mobility.”

All budgets
Europcar Global Driver Services features three service levels, which Europcar says makes it accessible for all sorts of budgets. The levels are economy, business and first class.

All service levels have “best-in-class professional drivers”, insurance, direct confirmation and flexibility in both the modification and cancellation policy.

The company hopes the move will be another step toward meeting new mobility demands. Brunel is a Europcar company based in London and operates globally within ride-hailing markets.
