Europcar has announced a new vehicle rental initiative to support frontline HSE and Emergency Services staff as they work through the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The company is offering private rental vehicles for the duration of the crisis from a discounted rate of €35 per week. Their aim is to facilitate social distancing and provide convenient and safe transport to/from work for vital frontline workers. The TOGETHER programme is in operation across Europcar Mobility Group’s global network spanning 135 countries to relieve some of the pressures on overstretched services and essential workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Europcar Ireland’s existing range of services, including vehicle rental and GoCar car sharing, remain in full operation across the country, and the company is committed to providing members of the public with convenient and safe transport options as usual during these unprecedented times.
Commenting on the announcement, Colm Brady, MD of Europcar Mobility Group Ireland, said:
“During such unprecedented times, it is crucial that businesses and communities continue to support one another and create a united front in the face of this crisis. Frontline HSE and Emergency Services staff across the country are working tirelessly to tackle the unfolding COVID-19 situation and for this we are truly grateful. We hope that this dedicated transport service will be of some benefit to those workers who are helping all of us during this very difficult period.”
To avail of this initiative, frontline workers must provide ID and a valid driving licence. Additional terms and conditions may apply. Further information about the new rental initiative and registrations can be made via https://www.europcar.ie/together.
