Livelo is proud to provide Europcar Australia with an exclusive bike rental option for their customers who are looking to cycle when they visit Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth, Adelaide or Canberra.
Europcar has a range of vehicles fitted with Thule bike carries and the addition of a Livelo high performance bike makes this a partnership made in cycling heaven.
Europcar's Australian base has experienced a surge in demand by executives and tourists alike who want access to bikes to maintain their cycling passion and explore new destinations – and not just any bikes.
Europcar Australia Managing Director Ron Santiago said both corporate and leisure travellers were demanding top-of-the-range bikes that they might usually ride as part of their normal routine.
“This partnership allows Europcar to offer its customers who long for the mobility of a bike while travelling, a high performance road bike through Livelo’s convenient concierge system,” he said.
“It complements our bike carrier fleet perfectly, which is expanding constantly to keep up with demand from cycling fans across Australia.
“We are very excited to be partnering with Europcar to extend the flexibility cycling offers to travellers, both corporate and leisure. This is a strong emerging market that is getting bigger every year,” Mr Barnes said
Responding to Australia’s growing cycling culture, last month Europcar added 40 new Renault Koleos vehicles to its bike carrier fleet.
The Renault vehicles, packed with features, are fitted with Thule ProRide bike carriers to allow for the secure carrying of two bikes.
Mr Santiago said cycling was driving considerable business growth and, as a result, Europcar was constantly expanding its services to shape the future of mobility.
“Europcar aims to service the mobility needs of our customers by offering diversified solutions that provide them with more freedom,” he said.
“We recognise Australia’s cycling culture will continue to grow and are investing in transport solutions that will allow locals, as well as travellers, to access their preferred method of transport.”
