Europcar is one of the leading global car rental companies.
Founded in Paris in 1949, the company today operates a fleet of over 220,000 vehicles at 2,650 locations in 118 different countries covering Europe, The Middle East, Africa, Indian Ocean, Central America, Mexico, Caribbean and Asia -Pacific.
In Dominican Republic, Europcar was established in 1992, and since then, its effort to bring great service in the dominican car rental bussiness has remain intact.
Europcar is owned by Volkswagen AG, the number one car manufacturer in Europe.
Europcar has developed into a global provider of mobility services. The foundation for this evolution consists of partnerships with airlines, railway operators, hotel groups, automobile clubs and road-side assistance services. Europcar thus integrates the business of renting cars within a consistent, global mobility concept.
Europcar has succeeded in gaining this market position as a mobility service provider not least through its synergetic relationship with Volkswagen, its parent company. Europcar is an integral component of the VW Group and its comprehensive mobility concept.
Europcar also offers its customers a wide spectrum of service solutions in the reservation process. In this area, the Internet has become an increasingly important tool for booking, alongside the telephone or travel agencies' Global Distribution Systems. As a matter of principle, Europcar does not promote any particular reservation channel, but offers the customer the choice of all possible reservation methods to meet their individual needs.
In an increasingly complex world, the personal freedom of each person to set individual priorities - whether in the business or private domain - is becoming more and more important. Europcar has therefore set itself the goal of providing tailored mobility solutions that respond to these individual needs and desires.
