The LTA, the national governing body for tennis, has announced a new three-year partnership with Europcar Mobility Group UK, which has become the Official LTA Accredited Coach Car Rental Partner.   

As part of the deal Europcar will provide an attractive and highly flexible offer package, based on its Flex long-term rental solutions portfolio, to around 6,000 accredited coaches across the UK. With no deposit or early termination payments and flexible mileage tiers and rental periods, it is a package that fits with the coaches’ work and lifestyle.

Europcar Flex offers a wide range of brand new vehicles, which are available for delivery within 2 weeks. LTA Accredited Coaches also have the option to include servicing, maintenance, tax and insurance in one fixed monthly price.  And, after a minimum commitment of just 3 months, there is the option to return or swap their vehicle with no early exit fees.

As well as offering a flexible and cost-effective rental package to the LTA coaches, Europcar is also providing two vehicles for coach tutors based at the National Tennis Centre, for use at training events, coach forums and conferences.

What they said...

Merlin van de Braam, LTA Head of Coach Development, said: “This is a very important partnership for us and we are pleased to be working with Europcar to provide excellent value transport options for our accredited coaches. Coaches make an invaluable contribution to our work to open up tennis to more people across the country and, through this partnership, we are giving them greater flexibility by making travel more affordable.”

Ron Santiago, Managing Director, Europcar Mobility Group UK added: “We are very pleased to have agreed this 3-year partnership with the LTA and look forward to offering great value and flexibility to its hardworking coaches across the UK. Our long-term rental packages will give LTA coaches a transport solution that flexes to their needs. We have new vehicles available now and they can swap the vehicle, after the initial three month period, if their travel needs change; something that leasing wouldn’t allow them to do. With flexibility on mileage too, we believe Europcar Flex will give LTA accredited coaches a stress-free transport solution so that they can concentrate on developing the tennis talent of the future without having to worry about getting to and from their coaching sessions.”
