The Journey Goes On for Arval in the New Normal

As the coronavirus appears to be winding down, companies are resuming their activities and preparing for the New Normal. So is Arval, which is now launching a comprehensive offer specially designed for the post-lockdown period.

Arval aims to support its customers who are dealing with the consequences of the pandemic and, more importantly, to help them restart their business and get back to work with safe, sustainable and cost-effective mobility solutions.

At the outbreak of the COVID-19 crisis, Arval took measures to help its customers and drivers face its impact. Now that the lockdown measures are being lifted in many of Arval’s countries, new accelerating trends are being observed in terms of mobility: higher expectations in terms of disinfection and protection, widespread teleworking, massive use of door-to-door delivery services, and the need for alternative mobility solutions.

To support its customers, Businesses (from large international companies to smaller SMEs and self-employed professionals) and Consumers, Arval is now launching its new “The Journey Goes On” offer.

“Arval changed its brand signature a few months ago to ‘For the many journeys in life.’ More than ever, we believe that our mission is to help our customers, their drivers and individuals, to face the new journey we are all engaging in. They are all calling for more flexibility, as well as more safety. We want to be there for them, and that’s what “The Journey Goes On” is all about,” comments Alain van Groenendael, Arval Chairman & CEO.

Three pillars

As part of its The Journey Goes On programme, Arval has developed tailor-made solutions for both individuals and self-employed professionals on the one hand and companies on the other.

The offer dedicated to individuals is also available for employees of companies who want to provide them with an alternative mobility mean such as electric bike leasing or electric vehicle leasing.

For Individuals and self-employed professionals, this includes a car for a daily fee starting at €6.99, including services like maintenance, insurance, tyres and assistance.

For companies, The Journey Goes On is built around three main pillars:

  • A car NOW!: flexible and immediate car leasing solutions to help companies restart their business
  • E-bike leasing as a safe and eco-friendly alternative for daily trips
  • Adapted operations to comply with social distancing and driver safety (e.g. car pick-up and delivery at home or office, on-site maintenance, car sanitisation)

The Journey Goes On will be progressively launched across Arval’s 8 biggest territories (France, Italy, UK, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, Poland and Belgium) and further extended within the Arval world. In all territories, the content of the offer is adapted to local conditions and constraints.
