Information for Essential Workers Hiring Europcar Rental Cars
In the context of the COVID-19 crisis, Europcar Mobility Group is implementing the "Together" program to facilitate the mobility of essential service organisations:
Europcar New Zealand is able to service "Essential Service" rental requirements from all its locations.
You will need to email us with proof of employment ID or a letter from your employer confirming employment in Essential Services. You will be contacted by Europcar once your reservation is made to validate employment and confirm your booking. Please ensure a valid mobile number and email address is included when making your reservation.
Our client’s safety as well as the safety of our people are our number one priority. In addition to the reinforced vehicle cleaning measures Europcar New Zealand already implemented, with the systematic use of disinfectant agents, we are also currently deploying extra measures in our branches included systematic desk disinfection between each customer and a "zero contact" policy.
To speak to a sales person about your long term or multiple vehicle rental needs for an Essential Services organisation, please call 0800 800 115 or +64 33665574. Alternatively you can email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please visit this website to determine if your business is classified as an essential service.

A 72 hour period must be respected for the vehicle in order to minimise any risk of passing on the infection to other customers and therefore the vehicle will remain with you during these 72 hours, but you will not be charged for the rental from the day you contact us.
You are not permitted to enter or drive the vehicle during the quarantine period. We will contact you to arrange the return of the vehicle. If you do not inform us of the reasons why the car has not been returned, we may have to charge you for additional days, which is clearly not our intention if you've been infected or quarantined.
If you currently have a vehicle and are due to return during the lockdown or need to extend the rental due to the lockdown, please contact our reservations team on 0800 800 115 or +64 33665574. Alternatively you can firstname.lastname@example.org.
