How Arval’s long-term car hire works

Frequently asked questions

Why should I use Arval for my car hire needs?
Arval is the leading provider of leasing and fleet management services with its own mid-term rental fleet of over 1,250 vehicles. We therefore understand and can cater for the wide-ranging requirements of all vehicle fleets, no matter what size. Our goal in creating our mid-term car hire product was to combine the flexibility of car hire with the comprehensive range of services offered by full-service leasing packages. As of the first quarter of 2018, we have been adding more and more electric and hybrid vehicles to our hire car fleet. This means you can use our long-term car hire services to test electric vehicles for your fleet, without entering into any long-term commitments.

In future, our rental vehicles will all be pre-equipped with Arval Active Link telematic technology. This technology can, among other things, evaluate driver behaviour,identify the driver, determine whether a journey is for business of private purposes, and conduct real-time tracking. Customers can select the modules that are relevant to their fleet policy.
