In Ireland, business vehicle leasing is regarded by many as a required expense. But recently businesses are on the lookout to how they can maximise their fleet while minimising spend.

Though your business may tend to opt for vehicle purchases and leases, as going the flexible rental alternative is a new road and most don’t understand how it works.

A rental option does not necessarily mean that you are spending more but businesses are not yet savvy to know how it favours their businesses, and they assume any other leasing option will be presumed to come with a higher monthly cost.

If reviewed properly, it can simply be seen as an alternative to leasing option temporarily instead of owning your fleet. So why would you choose to opt for a long-term car rental as an alternative to leasing?

  1. No long-term contract necessary

Compared to leasing where you are stuck with a particular car type, Europcar Business Fleet services offer you the flexibility to change car type and fleet size as you need or as your business requires this ensures that you would not need use any other fleet provider.

As you are not tied to any long-term contract like a car or van leasing, you are free to either add or reduce your fleet and you will not be penalised for the early vehicle return. For example, you may have a seasonal peak and need big vans for a set period of time only.

Purchasing or leasing such vans would mean a company having vans that are too big most of the year, or vans that are too small to cope with peak periods. Often, long term rental as an option works well for companies that lease or purchase some vehicles where flexibility is not required.
