Our mission

Our mission is to deliver a complete range of car leasing solutions to businesses, regardless of their size.

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 promise

Every day at Arval, we set out to demonstrate that we deliver on our promises, and where possible, go beyond.

Our products and services

Whether you need a one-day contract or a 5-year one, Arval’s solutions offer you flexibility and reliability and help keep costs under control.

Alongside its Long-Term rental solutions, offering clear benefits for your organisation’s mobility and fleet strategy, Arval provides vehicles for Short-Term rental and also runs an innovative Car Sharing scheme.

OPERATIONAL LEASING: LONG TERM

An easy and cost-effective way of financing and managing business vehicles, long-term rental allows you to lease brand new cars and vans without having to tie up capital in order to purchase them.

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.

SHORTLEASE

Arval’s short term rental contracts give you the benefit of paying for vehicles only when you need them, so you can be confident that you will always be in full control of your budget.

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 Car Sharing

If some of your employees only need to make use of a company vehicle on an occasional basis, Arval’s innovative Car Sharing service is a flexible solution for increasing your employees’ mobility.

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.
