Europcar Mobility Group partners with ECO Rent a Car in India, with its Europcar brand
Europcar Mobility Group announces its new strategic Alliance with ECO Rent a Car in India. With this partnership, both ECO and EuropcarⓇ customers will benefit from a consistent high quality service worldwide.
ECO customers will be able to access Europcar’s car rental services directly from ECO’s website (website: www.ecorentacar.com, email: email@example.com) and will be able to purchase all-inclusive packages outside of India throughout the Europcar Worldwide Network.
In the same way, EuropcarⓇ customers will have access to ECO’s services through Europcar’s website (www.europcar.com) and will be able to either rent a car, or book a chauffeur service in India.

It offers a 5,000+ vehicles fleet across all categories and transports a number of 50,000 passengers every day. With its services spread across another 60 cities across India, ECO is shaping the sphere of mobility with continuous investments in the latest fleet, a customer-centric team and a best-in-class user-friendly technology.

Marcus Bernhardt, Managing Director International Coverage Business Unit, commented:
“Europcar Mobility Group is delighted to announce the signing of our newest Alliance Partnership with ECO Rent A Car. The commitment to quality and outstanding service levels make ECO the right choice to enter the Indian market place. This partnership will also give the Europcar’s customer access to one of India’s leading Rental Networks, while strengthening the Europcar brand awareness in India ; India being one of the prime targets of Europcar Mobility Group’s geographical expansion strategy”.
This partnership is an outstanding opportunity for the Europcar brand to benefit from the strong inflow of Indian tourists throughout the world – and particularly in Europe. The UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) predicts that India will account for 50 million outbound tourists by 2020. Operators say that at present around 25 million tourists from India travel abroad — this basically implies that the number would double from current levels within the next two years. Around a decade back, eight million Indians were travelling overseas.
“We are proud to partner with ECO, one of the most renowned and respected companies in India. We share a common vision with them, that the future needs global mobility players who will be able to make people’s life easier. We were actively seeking for a key partner in India and one of the brands of our portfolio – Brunel, chauffeur services – was already partnering with them, with success. The planets are best aligned to make of this partnership a successful story for both our companies” said Fabrizio Ruggiero, Europcar Mobility Group’s Deputy CEO, Head of Business Units.
