Shouqi customers will be able to access Europcar’s car rental services directly from Shouqi’s website and will be able to purchase all-inclusive packages outside of China throughout the Europcar Worldwide Network, according to Europcar.
In the same way, Europcar customers will have access to Shouqi’s services through Europcar’s website and will be able to either rent a car, if they own a Chinese driving license, or book a chauffeur service in China through three offers: classic, business, or persons with reduced mobility.
