Volkswagen Financial Services UK (VWFS) has launched its first sites for car hire firm Rent-a-Car in the UK, with dealerships signed up to run rental services from their showrooms.
The initial launch sees three Volkswagen and three Skoda retailers operate Rent-a-Car services, with customers able to book online by choosing which branch they want to collect from and which vehicle they’d like from a selection of available models.
Customers can also specify the dates of their rental and pay online.
Current retailers providing rental services are located in Leeds, Northampton, Watford, Poole and Exeter.
The service is already live in Germany and Spain and VWFS says the programme has been performing well in these markets.
VWFS says the new Rent-a-Car service will address historic customer issues with car hire by providing a choice of vehicles, transparent pricing with no hidden charges and paperless check-in and out of the car.
The company plans to add further UK locations throughout 2018.
