Executive Summary

Sep 2019
PROSPECTS
Call for more transparent pricing

In 2015, a joint investigation by the European Commission and the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) led Avis Budget, Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Hertz, Sixt and Europcar to commit to offer clearer and more transparent information about the total rental prices reported on their websites. After a review carried out at the beginning of 2019, some of the companies were found not to be fully compliant with the terms outlined in EU consumer law, as their online offer still included hidden fees or misleading information.

Challenging road to zero carbon emissions

The UK government released its Road to Zero Strategy in July 2018. According to the plan, at least half of the new cars in circulation will be ultra-low emission by 2030, while sales of petrol and diesel cars are expected to stop by 2040.

Car rental goes mobile

Despite being late with respect to other travel sectors, the use of apps for car rental has become a reality in the UK. The French mobile-only car rental service Virtuo was launched in Edinburgh, Manchester and London in May 2019.
