Europcar Offers Customers A Tenner For Fuel

Europcar launches offer to give customers a GBP10 voucher towards their next hire if they bring their car back with more than a quarter of a tank of fuel



    TEDDINGTON, ENGLAND, August 13, 2009 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Europcar, the UK's leading vehicle hire company is giving customers a GBP10 voucher towards their next hire if they bring their car back with more than a quarter of a tank of fuel.

The offer applies to customers who bought a full tank of fuel at the start of the hire, taking advantage of just one of Europcar's car hire deals, including Europcar's competitive rate per litre, 5p under the average high street pump price.

"Customers have told us they like the option of buying fuel up front as it saves them the hassle of re-fuelling the vehicle at the end of the hire and also means they receive a good rate at a time when fuel costs are rising again", said Catriona Lougher, Marketing Director of car hire firm Europcar.

"However, there are occasions when the customer has not used as much fuel as they anticipated and this can cause some dissatisfaction. As it would be difficult to calculate the exact reimbursement cost for any fuel left in the car, we have decided to offer a GBP10 voucher towards their next hire. This is all part of our commitment to make vehicle hire from Europcar accessible, straightforward and cost-effective for our customers."

This new offer is being announced alongside a host of other activities by the company, including the launch of 'Hot Summer Tweets', the new Europcar Twitter campaign to help engage customers during the peak summer months, and a competition to win a 5 star weekend break by signing up to the Europcar newsletter.
