Europcar Group and SnappCar Join Forces to Offer a New Car Sharing Solution
Europcar Group (Paris:EUCAR), a major player in mobility markets, announces the launch of its Drive & Share solution in Germany and Denmark together with SnappCar, the second-largest international peer-to-peer car sharing player in Europe, in which Europcar Group is a significant investor.
After a first successful pilot phase in France, Drive & Share solution is launched in Germany and Denmark.
Drive & Share is dedicated to people who want to enjoy the flexibility of owning a car but who don’t need to use it often. With Drive & Share, customers have access to a long term car rental to answer their mobility needs and which they can share on SnappCar platform with all the members when they don’t need it. Drive & Share is a good alternative for car ownership.
Drive & Share is an all-in-one solution that includes vehicle, insurance and maintenance. Customers select a package based on their preferred vehicle category and rental package (rental period ranging from 3 to 12 months; mileage and insurance package). A monthly rental fare is set based on the package selected. If the owner commits to share the vehicle at least 2 times a month, he will receive an attractive rate plus the SnappCar rental earnings.
“With the launch of Drive & Share in two of our subsidiaries in Europe, Europcar Group keeps on its engagement to offer innovative, simple and flexible mobility solutions to its customers. With this new product, we want to match with the evolution of usage patterns and to be able to offer a new way to use a car based on our customer needs. We are also happy to partner with SnappCar, a key player in their market.” says Sheila Struyck, Managing Director of the New Mobility Business Unit.
"SnappCar wants to keep innovating on the German and Danish Market. This association with Europcar demonstrates our commitment to offer simple solutions, qualitative and accessible to everyone.
