Cash for Car Schemes

5 March 2008

A survey conducted by Europcar found that 37% of companies offer cash for car schemes and almost one in six companies (15%) said they operate 100% cash for car fleets. Over 300 businesses took part in the survey which found that almost 25,000 company car drivers had opted to take cash and use their own vehicle for business purposes.

David McNeill, Corporate Sales Director for Europcar commented:

"So it is not surprising many businesses are recognising this issue and are turning to vehicle rental to give them the peace of mind that staff are driving safe, reliable vehicles covered by roadside assistance."
