The first 100% mobile car rental service, Virtuo has launched this week in London following on from its France and Belgium service with rentals in nine major cities. This innovative app will enable Londoners to travel in a Mercedes A-Class from as little as £35 per day.
The new service lets customers book, locate and unlock a premium Mercedes A-Class within minutes through the Virtuo app. There is no paperwork, no long counter queues to collect and return a traditional rental car and no hidden fees.
The business was born out of a frustration when renting cars: hidden fees, limited opening hours, long queues for pick-up and returns. However, this all-in-app experience has a human side to it; a London-based customer service team, who can be contacted directly through the app, any time of day or night.
Karim Kaddoura, Co-founder of Virtuo, explains “We’re extremely proud and excited to be launching Virtuo in the UK today. We genuinely care about our customers and the experience they have with us, every step of the journey is designed to make using Virtuo the ultimate rental experience. We want our customers to be in control of their journey and our 24/7 bookings gives them exactly that, we put them in the driving seat.”
Michael Altom, General Manager Virtuo UK & Ireland, adds “The mobility market is changing at an unprecedented rate. After using our service, enjoying the customer support and the seamless experience, our customers won’t go back to traditional car rental companies or even own a car.”
The brand-new cars are available, from this week, to book through the Virtuo app and pick up in five locations across London (London Victoria, London Waterloo, King’s Cross St Pancras, Marble Arch and Kensington). Users can simply download the Virtuo app, validate their account, book their car and be on the road in a matter of minutes.
