TEDDINGTON, England, May 18, 2011 - Europcar, the UK's leading vehicle hire company, continues to bring
travellers the best rates with the launch of Privilege, its new loyalty
programme. Membership is free, allowing frequent hirers to benefit from
tailor made discounts, including up to 30% off all leisure rentals.

Reflecting its understanding of the time pressures on travellers -
especially independent business travellers - Privilege provides members with
crucial time-saving benefits. It eliminates queuing and paperwork and
guarantees reservations. Plus, as well as saving money on car hire, Privilege
members have access to discounts from other premium services from Europcar
partners, offering loyal customers the ultimate reward scheme.

Travellers simply sign-up online on Europcar's website to earn Privilege
activity points. From the very first hire members are part of the Privilege
Club, receiving guaranteed reservations as well as a 10% discount on leisure
rates and special rates at participating Accor Hotels and access to the Accor
loyalty programme. Privilege Club also offers an express pick-up service for
convenient car hire (

Once members have completed 10 hires in a year they join Privilege
Executive and their benefits increase. These include a 20% discount on
leisure hires, plus free upgrades, subject to availability. For members
booking more than 25 hires per year, membership to Privilege Elite is
offered. This provides a 30% discount on leisure rates, one free weekend hire
per year, free additional driver and more benefits from Accor Hotels, making
it the ultimate reward scheme for business travellers.

Privilege members can view their personal account at any time by logging
on to the Europcar website to check their bookings.

"We know how crucial it is for all travellers - but especially business
travellers - to be able to get on with their journey as quickly and
cost-effectively as possible," explained Ken McCall, managing director,
Europcar UK.

"We have therefore designed Privilege to give them the ultimate
convenience, as well as thank them for their loyalty and the trust they place
in us every day, throughout our worldwide network. Through the 'get more by
hiring more' principle, Privilege offers our customers the best quality
service while systematically thanking them each time they hire with
