Car hire firm Europcar has again won the World’s Leading Car Hire Company and World’s Leading Green Transport Solution Company awards at the latest World Travel Awards.

The global car hire giant was recognised at the award ceremony held in London on the 7th of November.

The World Travel Awards are the equivalent of the Academy Awards for those involved in the travel industry. In choosing the winners, some 187,000 industry professionals had voted for the top company for each category among seven worldwide regions.

This marked the second time Europcar has taken the World’s Leading Green Transport Solution Company award and the fourth consecutive year it was recognised with the World’s Leading Car Hire Company award.

Jehan de Thé, Global Marketing Director for Europcar Groupe, said as he received the Green Transport Solution Award that his company was truly proud to again be receiving the two awards, which show that the industry has recognised Eurpocar’s approach to Environmental protection.

He went on to say that the awards are representative of Europcar’s pioneering efforts to raise awareness among car hire customers whilst continuing to enhance its fleet with environmentally friendly vehicles.
