Europcar does not offer a rent-to-own option, it purely focuses rentals. However, it does have a streamlined rental process, much like renting a car ordinarily, so there’s no waiting around or filling out application forms.

If you are happy to pay a premium, drivers under 25 years of age can also rent from Europcar.

Hi Bish,

Thanks for your question.

According to the terms and conditions, you can nominate a credit card, Europcar charge account or debit card at the start of your rental for the debiting of charges under your Rental Contract.

Hope that helps,

Stephanie

I just see information about rent a car for uber/ola drive with comparison.


Can we have same information for who is interested to give their own car to these company for rental purpose?


For Example:-

A = A person who is a owner of Sedan Car 2011+ model xyz Brand and interested to offer his car for rental business via service provider.

SP = Service Provide like Eurocar/Splend/Drivemycar etc


A is looking for a quote from SP that how much they will offer a weekly partnership rate if A is offer his own sedan car 2011+ model xyz brand available for rent with xyz SP collaboration.

Hi Raheel,


Thanks for leaving a question on our page. “While we review Europcar Uber Rental in our pages, it’s helpful to know that we neither work with them or answer for their company. It would be best to contact the customer service support of Europcar Uber Rental directly for further assistance.


Hope this clarifies and we hope they find a quick resolution for you!


With care,

Nikki

Hi, I want to become an Uber driver and I want to rent a car. I am 35 years old and I hold an Italian driver licence, but I drove so many times here in Australia. What do I need to do to be an Uber driver here? Is it possible to get information from all of these rental companies? (I don’t know if there’s an apposite service to get quotes from them). Thanks in advance, Gianvito
