European app-based car rental service Virtuo is offering free rentals to National Health Services (NHS) workers in London, Manchester, and Edinburgh.
The cars offered are Mercedes A-Class and GLA models. Virtuo reported that over 100 NHS workers have signed up for the initiative to date.
“We are prioritizing anyone on the frontline (Doctors nurses etc) but will help all who we can,” said Virtuo cofounder Karim Kaddoura. "Many of the NHS staff are struggling with commuting, errands and redeployment and we are keen to do our bit,” Kaddoura said.
“While this period is going to have a significant impact on our business and our future, we want to try and do some good in all of this. If everyone can step forward and play their part, we will get through this together.”
