Europcar Launches New Social Media Campaign

Europcar, the leader in car hire services in Europe for leisure and business users, has launched an innovative new social media campaign for the summer.

Using YouTube and Facebook, the Europcar Caraoke Competition sets out to find the best in-car karaoke singer in the country – with a grand prize of a Fiat 500 car plus weekly prizes up for grabs. The campaign is another example of Europcar’s thought leading marketing strategy, following 2011’s multi-faceted freeDeliver campaign, engaging customers and social media savvy consumers alike.

The Caraoke campaign plays on the karaoke culture and builds on the huge popularity of talent shows. With so many singers and wannabe performers entering talent shows but falling short of their big break, Europcar’s Caraoke provides a great opportunity for the more eclectic singers and entertainers to prove their worth and drive away in a cool Fiat 500.

The social media campaign will be focused on promoting the X-factor style competition and be hosted on Facebook, utilising the YouTube API feed.

The Europcar Caraoke competition comprises two aspects to encourage maximum engagement amongst motorists and inspire people to show their star qualities. The idea is to get people recording their favourite song from a list of 10 classics, including the Troggs hit, ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Dancing in the Moonlight’ by Toploader, and then uploading their videos to YouTube.

The second part of the campaign aims to get consumers voting for their favourite videos and sharing them via Facebook. The performance with the most votes will win the car.

In addition to the grand prize, a series of weekly prizes will be given out between July 25th and August 22nd including Amazon e-vouchers, Eastern Airways flights, an overnight stay plus dinner and breakfast at a Hand Picked Hotel, Garmin Sat Nav systems, Samsung Galaxy Tablets, Driving Experience packages and Spa Days at the luxurious 5 Star hotel resort Stoke Park. Weekly prize winners will be selected via a prize draw by Promo Veritas giving entrants more chances to win prizes.

Promoting the competition, Europcar will also be hosting two road show events to encourage shoppers to participate in its Caraoke competition. These will take place in Bluewater, Kent on Saturday 28th July and the Bullring, Birmingham on Saturday August 11th. Europcar is urging people to make a date in their diaries to exhibit their talents by recording their videos.

The totally interactive campaign reinforces Europcar’s position as number one in the European car hire marketplace as it brings a more personal and friendly voice to the brand in a market where social interaction with car hire firms is usually only one way.

“Our job, as market leader is to set the standard across the board,” said Ken McCall, Managing Director, Europcar UK Group. “From car hire to social media strategies and campaigns our objective is to keep Europcar at the forefront of the marketplace by implementing innovative techniques that drive the business forward and change consumer expectations of car hire.

“With Caraoke we aim to reach a new audience; raising awareness of Europcar’s innovative car hire services to the social media savvy population.”

The Caraoke competition will be hosted on the company’s Facebook page, found at:http://www.facebook.com/EuropcarUK

Easy to use with added value services, the new application makes booking a car more simple and enjoyable than ever. Customers can make reservations and search for details on any Europcar car hire locations worldwide, at the touch of a button. This new mobile application reflects Europcar’s commitment to support its customers in their mobility needs.

“The usage of mobile phones, and particularly smartphones, is playing an ever increasing role in society and statistics now show that around 25% of total mobile users shop using their smartphones. With the development of this mobile application, we therefore wish to accompany our customers at important steps of their everyday lives by providing them with a new booking experience that is simple and brings them added value.

Europcar’s new mobile applications have been developed to help customers throughout their rental experience, from identifying Europcar car hire locations to picking up and using the car.

The new optimized booking path requires only 3 steps to book a car:
– Define, time and place of rental
– Choose the vehicle
– Payment options (immediately or at the rental location)

During the booking, customers will also have the possibility to enrich their reservation with extras (e.g. child seats or a GPS/Sat Nav); at the end of the booking it is also possible to store personal data, in order to significantly speed up future bookings.

Europcar’s application offers added value functionalities such as augmented reality, allowing customers to use their mobile phone camera to visualise how to find the nearest station or, thanks to the ‘car finder’ function, customers can take a photo of where they parked, store this in the Europcar App and then use augmented reality to find their way back to the car.

Europcar will promote this new application through three videos, which will be available on Europcar’s YouTube page, pin-pointing possible different uses of the mobile application: for business customers, for a planned trip and for a last minute reservation.

UK Travellers Should Plan Ahead as Summer Shortages Hit Spain Car Hire – Carrentals.co.uk

UK travellers taking their summer holidays in Spain this year have been warned to plan ahead as news emerged of a rental car stock shortage in Spanish resorts this year.

The advice on planning ahead comes from leading car hire price comparator Carrentals.co.uk, which has advised that there could be up to 18,000 fewer rental cars available in Spain following the news that AurigaCrown has gone out of business. The website warns that the impact of the shortage will see increased hire prices and lower stocks throughout the busy summer months.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “There is a real chance that people heading to Spain this summer will find a shortage of rental cars when they come to book. As such it is vital to book your rental car as soon as possible and as early as possible – since there is every chance the busiest Spanish resorts are going to have lowers stocks, no availability at all or very high prices this summer.”

“We can help Brits out by allowing them to compare car hire from up to 50 of the sector’s leading hire companies. Our service offers people the best chance possible of getting a good value deal from a smaller provider if the bigger providers are sold out this year.”

Gareth goes on: “Rental suppliers who had their own customers’ reservations in place with AurigaCrown before they went bust have had to transfer those bookings to alternative providers. However, we do also advise any tourists who have got a deal in place already to rent a car in Spain this holiday season to check their paperwork and see who their supplier is. Then you can contact them to check the status and availability of your reservation.”

Carrentals.co.uk compares car hire deals from up to 50 rental companies, including Alamo, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt in over 15,000 locations worldwide.

As might be expected from a major player in the leasing industry, Nationwide Vehicle Contracts have an enormous range of cars on their books. From smaller superminis lease deals such as the superb Kia Picanto and the highly acclaimed Peugeot 107 to larger SUVs like the award-winning Porsche Cayenne and the ultra-tough Nissan X-Trail and deals such as Volvo contract hire.

In recent years, leasing a car has become more and more popular, and it’s easy to see why. Choosing this option makes financial management far easier to organise in the coming years, because the driver will know monthly outgoings in advance, and of course will not have to find a major initial outlay. By becoming available at weekends, NVC’s experienced and knowledgeable staff members will now be on hand to explain the benefits throughout the week.

One of the reasons for the company’s high profile within the industry is the combination of low prices and tempting special offers, which has proved particularly attractive in the past few years. Nationwide Vehicle Contracts have always had a strong commitment to matching quality with value, and their highly impressive Price Match Challenge is an especially good example.

NVC recognise that making a decision about leasing a superb new car isn’t always the responsibility of a single person, so their weekend opening will come as particularly welcome news to couples and families. Now everyone can join in the debate about the best options, and of course with Nationwide’s friendly experts on hand to offer guidance making the right choice has never been easier.

Having established themselves as one of the largest and most proactive car leasing specialists, Nationwide Vehicle Contracts see their weekend opening as evidence of their belief in the importance of customer service. It’s also a hugely impressive indication of their commitment to the future of their business.

Online car hire specialist offers £1 for each booking made on January 25 this year

Online car hire comparison specialist Carrentals.co.uk will this coming January 25th hold its second ‘Book & Donate’ day in aid of homeless charity StreetSmart. The day will see Carrentals.co.uk donate £1 per booking to the leading homeless charity group.

The first Carrentals.co.uk ‘Book & Donate’ day was hosted on January 11 2012 and succeeded in raising over £330 for StreetSmart. The money contributes to the great work done by StreetSmart – the group helps to fund education, training, housing and health initiatives for homeless people around the UK. The group works with 90 UK homeless charities and has the support of celebrities such as Stephen Fry, Neil Morrissey and Richard Bacon.

Gareth Robinson, Managing Director of Carrentals.co.uk, says: “The response to our first ever ‘Book & Donate’ day was great, and we raised more than £330 for StreetSmart. As such we have decided we will host more similar days, where every car hire booking made through Carrentals.co.uk will create a £1 donation to StreetSmart.”

“We are hoping that our site users planning to rent a car this winter will consider booking it on a ‘Book & Donate’ day to help StreetSmart out,” Gareth continues. “As ever we also recommend advance booking to get the best deals and plenty of choice – rental cars are in high demand right now and people can end up paying over the odds if they wait too long.”

Carrentals.co.uk has more ‘Book & Donate’ days scheduled for later in 2012 with days already booked for February 8th and 22nd, and March 7th and 21st.

StreetSmart operates large fundraising campaigns and events every November and December, working with leading UK restaurants to raise money. Leading names like Nobu, Dinner by Heston Blumenthal and Restaurant Gordon Ramsay all feature, with the restaurants adding a £1 donation to diners’ bills to help generate funds for StreetSmart.

Glenn Pougnet, director of StreetSmart, comments: “We are of course hugely pleased that Carrentals.co.uk has chosen to continue running Book & Donate days, they made such a great job of the first one. We sincerely hope that Carrentals.co.uk website users will book their cars on these days to help raise funds for our UK homeless projects.”

Carrentals.co.uk is the UK’s leading car rental comparison site, comparing deals from up to 50 rental companies including Alamo, Auto Europe, Budget, Holiday Autos and Sixt, in over 15,000 locations worldwide.
