Saving money while staying flexible

In our overview, we will demonstrate how to "drive better" with a rental car under certain conditions. With our fleet solutions you not only save money, but also gain in flexibility. In the calculation below, which is based on real data, you can clearly see your benefits.

The cost factor in comparison

Taking the same general conditions into account when comparing leasing with car rental, the conclusion can be made that operational expenses over a period of 8 months are lower with rentals than with leasing cars.

Leasing vs. car rental

Operating expenses over the term of 12 months show to be lower with rentals than with leasing cars. Therefore, car rentals offer an ideal supplement for short-term mobility needs.

Tax benefits and transparent costs

When renting a car for a longer period of time downtime costs can be avoided since your fleet only contains those vehicles which you have a need for at the moment.

Securing equity

Especially with regard to restrictive lending (keyword Basel II), the car rental brings the added value of having unrestricted capital.

Cost factor car and time

With a rental car you will benefit from value stability, transparent costs, tax benefits, official mileage allowances, as well as promt available vehicles and Europe-wide mobility.

The risk of depreciation in vehicle rental is borne solely by Europcar.The fixed and variable costs are 100% covered by the rent. As with operating leases, the same tax benefits apply to you when renting a vehicle. With a mileage of more than 130 km per day, a rental car from Europecar is cheaper. We take over the car service, maintenance, tire changes, repairs and more.
