A major southern England-based car rental company has opted for a single-badge deal with Vauxhall and Saab.
Apex Car Rental, based in Eastbourne, East Sussex, will take 4,000 cars next year in a deal worth more than £50 million at showroom prices.
The majority of the fleet – to be changed every five months – will be selected from across the whole Vauxhall range but a number of Saab 9-3 and 9-5 models will also be available for rental.
Apex director Roland Standley said: "We have had Vauxhalls on our fleet for the last seven years. When we decided to go to a single-badge deal we had little hesitation in selecting Vauxhall because of the breadth, and reliability, of its range.
"And the fact that we can now easily add the same shopping basket was also a determining factor."Published 30 November 2003
