Europcar Mobility Group UK, is helping businesses prepare for the implementation of the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) which comes into effect on 8th April 2019.
Transport for London has launched a scrappage scheme for vehicles that will not comply with the requirements of the new ULEZ. Europcar is offering 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.
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.”
The Europcar discount for 10% off midweek van hire is available at the following locations:
Kings Cross Van & Truck Centre
Skyport (near Heathrow Airport)
To qualify for the discount, customers can visit europcar.co.uk/deals/tfl-ulez
