Europcar UK, a subsidiary of Europcar Group, the European leader in vehicle rental services and a major player in mobility markets, is applying its proven experience in the Corporate and Leisure sectors to the Insurance marketplace, providing a reliable and transparent replacement vehicle service.
With a network of over 200 locations across the UK, and a promise to deliver within a 2 hour window for the standard fleet, insurers can be confident that Europcar will meet their customer needs. A Europcar location is rarely more than 8 miles away from the customer’s address and the industry-leading Deliver & Collect service means as little inconvenience as possible for the policyholder. Europcar delivers to their front door – at home, work or the bodyshop - at a time pre-arranged with them.
The fleet of more than 60,000 vehicles – cars and vans – means Europcar can give the policyholder a vehicle that feels the same quality as their own – or even better! With the majority of cars less than 6 months old, this enables insurers to give their customer a driving experience that is probably even better than their own – with all the latest motoring technology – to enhance the customer experience.
The expectation of a positive customer experience within motor insurance is never higher than when it comes to claims. This spotlight looks at how following best practice in replacement vehicle hire can add value to the motor claims process and improve customer experience.
Attitudes towards car ownership and personal transport are changing, with a dramatic generational shift building up a head of steam. This spotlight sheds light on why replacement cars face an uncertain future as individual car ownership recedes and mobility changes.
