Europcar outlines ULEZ van scrappage support package

Europcar Mobility Group UK has revealed further details of how it’s helping businesses prepare for the implementation of the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), which comes into effect on 8 April 2019. 

Europcar is offering a 10% discount of midweek rentals at qualifying locations under the van scrappage deal

The business announced last month that it’s lending its support to TfL’s recently announced scrappage scheme for vans that will not comply with the requirements of the new ULEZ.

Europcar has now confirmed that it will provide discounts on mid-week daily van rental for businesses who take up the scrappage scheme but do not want to buy new vehicles or sign up to lengthy lease agreements.

The 10% discount applies to van rentals collected from qualifying locations Monday-Thursday for rentals of 1-84 days. The offer is available for rentals from Croydon; Enfield; ExCeL London; Kennington; Kings Cross Van & Truck Centre; Kingston; Lewisham; Park Royal; Putney Bridge; Skyport (near Heathrow Airport); Streatham; Watford; and Woodford Green.

Stuart Russell, specialist vehicle director, Europcar Mobility Group UK, commented: “The ULEZ goes to the heart of the air quality issues facing the capital, and the scrappage scheme is a great initiative from TfL to help firms ensure it does not have a negative impact on their business.

“Whilst the cash sum could be useful to go towards new vehicle acquisition, some businesses may decide to use those funds for other purposes. If they don’t want to face the financial outlay for a new vehicle or commit to a lengthy lease, van rental provides a genuine alternative.

“With one of the youngest van rental fleets in the UK, Europcar is offering businesses participating in the scrappage scheme with a special discount to access vehicles that are fully compliant with the new ULEZ, available from locations in and around the perimeter of the capital.”
