We stand by our motto: Not only does Arval give you what you’ve asked for, but it gives you what you’ve always wanted. Since our first day of business a quarter-century ago, our mission has been to provide a service so complete that clients need not give their fleet's management another thought. Experience has taught us that companies require absolute efficiency, transparency and precision from their fleet management solution. We deliver on all counts -- and aim, where possible, to bring you more.

Our products and services
Arval’s long term rental contracts run between 2 and 5 years (although they can be longer). You have the use of new cars without up-front costs. Instead, you budget your expenditure as a fixed monthly amount. We offer the widest choice of models, and our competitive costs factor in the benefit of our buying power. We handle all aspects of maintenance and tyre management for you, and supply you with replacement vehicles when necessary. We take the hassle out of running a car… or a fleet of cars.
What many organisations need is the flexibility of short term vehicle rental. Arval’s contracts allow you to operate a fleet of cars and vans, only paying for vehicles when you need them and returning them when they are not required. With Arval short term contracts, there are no termination penalties. There is no long term commitment, and the minimum rental period is just 1 day. Not only that, all servicing and maintenance costs are included. You get all the convenience you could ever need.
Arval can provide you with leased vehicles that can be made available to any staff member who requires them. Users can use their smartphone or a web application to reserve a car. Their smartphones can also function as virtual keys to open the vehicle, which does away with procedures for handing over the actual car keys. This alternative mobility scheme allows fleet managers to improve their employees’ mobility while delivering cost savings and reducing the company’s environmental footprint.
Arval Consulting offers you ideal mobility and fleet solutions addressing not only your vehicle-related issues but also your employees’ overall mobility strategy.
Managing your fleet is time consuming. With Arval Outsourcing solutions, we relief you from your fleet management activities. We make sure you can outsource with confidence. We manage, you keep control.
At Arval, we are mindful of our economic and social profile and our impact on the environment.
Arval's corporate identity rests on four fundamental pillars: economic responsibility, social responsibility, civic responsibility, and respect for the environment and for the world we live in.
We help companies make the right choices regarding their total cost of ownership (TCO), car sharing, and pool management.
We advise clients and help them draw up a Company Car Policy that is reasonable and fair to both clients and drivers.
We offer safety training, identify drivers who may be at risk, and ensure that cars are properly maintained and insured.
Since the signing of the UN Global Compact in 2004, we are committed to align our operations and strategies with the Global Compact’s ten principles. As Philippe Bismut, CEO of Arval, stated:
"CSR is not just about image. It is at the heart of the business."
