Online Check-In. Our express pick-up service.

Often find yourself in a hurry? Or like your journey to be as seamless as possible? Then our Online Check-In service is for you. 
Online Check-In allows you to complete all paperwork and pay for your car hire before you even set foot in the branch. So when you arrive at the Europcar location, you just need to show your drivers licence*, the card you paid with and sign the rental agreement. Simple as that.
At most of our branches you’ll find dedicated Ready desks, where the pick-up service is even quicker, so you’ll have the keys and be on the road in no time! 
And the best part, it’s a free service. 
Book direct with Europcar to be able to benefit from Online Check-In next time you hire.


*Customers holding a UK Drivers Licence will be required to provide a DVLA “Share Driving Licence” code to validate their driving record. More details can be found here: DVLA changes
