A New Solution for Getting Around (and Out of) the City

For many years I lived in cities (Exeter, Leeds, London, Moscow) and had no real need of a car.  Just occasionally it would have made life easier, to make a long journey or to make a major trip to the supermarket, but never enough to justify the full expense of buying a car.  Many people living in major cities and towns are in a similar position, with local transport networks serving their needs adequately, but still needing access to a car from time to time.  Now a new service offers access to a car just when you need one, in a variety of modes: car club, taxi and car rental.

The innovative new service from Europcar, Ubeeqo, pointed out recently just how absurd owning a car in modern metropolises like Paris and London is.  Their campaign caused a stir on the Parisian streets, as you can see in this video:

In the fast moving urban environment, Ubeeqo provides a simple mobility solution.  There’s no longer the need to own a car to move around efficiently and quickly when you need to.  Ubeeqo's new, innovative and cost-effective urban travel solutions are available in three different modes: carsharing, traditional rental and minicabs.  If you would like to have a car available in Paris or in London just when and where you need one?  Or for the ideal corporate solution, it's all possible with Ubeeqo.
