ECO customers will be able to access Europcar’s car rental services directly from ECO’s website and will be able to purchase all-inclusive packages outside of India throughout the Europcar worldwide network.
In the same way, Europcar customers will have access to ECO’s services through Europcar’s website and will be able to either rent a car, or book a chauffeur service in India.
