Europcar and SnappCar develop car sharing solution
Dubbed Drive & Share, the new product provides long-term car rental vehicles that customers can then share on the SnappCar platform for when they’re not using the cars to gain discounted rates.
The solution includes vehicle, insurance and maintenance and covers rental periods ranging from 3 to 12 months, with the monthly rental rate based on the package selected. Drivers committing to share their vehicle at least twice a month get discounts on their rates plus the SnappCar rental earnings.
The new product comes some eight months after Europcar Group made a 20% minority investment in SnappCar.
“With this new product, we want to match the evolution of usage patterns to be able to offer a new way to use a car in response to customer needs. We are also happy to partner with SnappCar, a key player in its market,” said Sheila Struyck, managing director of the new mobility business unit at Europcar Group.
