December 22, 2006 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
easyCar.com has announced the launch of a new ‘Book Now, Pay Later’ service. For no extra cost, customers can now book a rental car in advance and pay just a £20 deposit, provided the booking is made eight weeks or more in advance of the pick-up date. The full balance is automatically collected three weeks before the pick up date.

This special offer guarantees the availability of the chosen easyCar.com vehicle and ensures that customers get the rental car at the price advertised when the booking was made. This removes the need to worry about seasonal fluctuations in price or availability.

easyGroup chairman, Stelios, said: "easyCar has grown into a profitable company by putting the consumer first and offering the best value motoring. I hope the Book Now, Pay Later service will make a difference by helping consumers look after their money and still get the car they want at the right price."

The ‘Book Now, Pay Later’ service, including rental prices and booking availability until March 2008, is accessible now on easyCar.com. This means customers can book a rental car almost 16 months in advance and pay only £20 now, with the full balance collected automatically just three weeks before the pick up date.
