Rental vehicles - An hygienic transport option?

  • 17 Sep 2020

During the Covid-19 Lockdown our transport options were curtailed. We were told not to use public transport and we worked from home where we could.

Now we’re being asked to go back to work, but we’re understandably wary of the transport options available and which is the safest.

As a small business owner, you may work from home anyway, and have reduced the amount of travel as networking, events and client visits have moved online.

However for those businesses and staff that need to either travel to work, or use their vehicle for their work, if they don’t have their own vehicle, another good option is a rental vehicle.


At Europcar, we want you to enjoy the best travel experience, whatever you need a vehicle for - van or car, which is why we launched our Safety Programme give you the peace of mind that you feel safe in hygienically clean vehicles.



We conduct the following actions to keep you as safe a possible:
