Europcar Mobile Discount Code (10% Off)
Europcar are encouraging customers to book through their mobile by offering an exclusive mobile discount. The current deal means that you can get 10% off your Europcar booking when the transaction takes place on the iOS or Android app.
This offer also extends to their mobile website (https://m.europcar.com) if you don’t want to download the app.
One Way Car Hire (for just £1)
It costs car hire companies like Europcar money to transport vehicles between their different locations. With this in mind, Europcar have come up with a clever product for customers who are tripping between cities.
£1 OneWay Hire from Europcar costs, as you can guess, just £1! It may sound too good to be true so here are the details you need to know:
- You have up to 24hrs to complete the journey so there is no rush
- You have a generous 550 mile built-in allowance to make the trip
- Europcar will pick the car for you but all cars are Economy size and above
- The tank will be full when you pick up the vehicle and you need drop it off at the same level
- Basic insurance is included
- You can cancel for free up to 24hrs before your pickup time
Europcar Student Discount (15%)
Students can save money with a Europcar promo code. Through the StudentBeans service, students can save up to 15% on their booking. This is particularly useful if you are transporting yourself and/or belongings between home and university.
Delivery and Collection Service
How do you get the car rental point if you don’t drive? This isn’t the start of a bad joke but an issue that many renters face on every journey! Europcar have made this easier by offering a delivery and collection service.
Europcar will deliver your rental vehicle to your home or place of work and collect it once you are done. Prices start from just £5 and adds a whole lot of convenience to the experience.
How much is the Europcar deposit?
I haven’t seen a car hire company that doesn’t take a holding deposit when you drive away from their depots and you can’t blame them! Try to take a credit card with you for these holding deposits as it makes the process much easier and the hold on your card is lifted much quicker than debit cards.
The Europcar deposit amount is: £250
Guidelines from Europcar state that it can take up to 10 days from the end of your hire for the funds to be returned to your account. In my experience car hire companies get it back much quicker than this and you should contact your bank if it isn’t credited on the 10th day.
Europcar Mileage Allowance
It’s always useful to know what your mileage allowance is when booking and using a hire car. Different car hire companies have varying allowances on the mileage you can rack up on your trip.
There are 2 types of mileage allowance at Europcar:
- Unlimited Mileage
- Mileage Tariff
You will be made aware and, where possible, given the choice between the two mileage allowance plans. To make the right decision it is worth calculating your estimated mileage and checking out this tariff document.
Hire a car by the hour
Traditionally you have had to book car hire by the day but no longer! If you need some wheels for a quick errand, hiring by the hour just makes sense and saves money on a typical 24hr minimum window.
Prices start from just £3 an hour and that includes:
- Congestion Charge
- Dart Charge
You can book the service through the Ubeeqo app 24/7. Pick the car up from one of the many designated spots and then drop it back off once your journey is complete. It couldn’t be easier!
It is always worth getting travel loyalty and reward points when spending money on a getaway. Handily, Europcar are part of the Nectar Card rewards programme so there is no need to sign up to an additional scheme to start earning.
Here is what you need to know about Nectar points at Europcar:
- On UK rentals, you collect 1 Nectar point for every £1 spent on car hire
- On Overseas rentals, you collect a fixed amount of 200 points per rental
- At step 3 of the checkout process, there is a “Partner Loyalty Programme”
- From the drop-down menu, select Nectar Points
- Now enter the 19-digit unique Nectar card code
- The points are added to your account 8 weeks after your rental is complete
