Free2move, a new global mobility app from Stellantis in Auburn Hills, is designed to give car rental customers seamless access to vehicles not available through other brokers.
In the tight automotive market, which has seen dramatic shortages over the past two years, Free2move says it is dedicated to maximizing customer experience with more than 450,000 vehicles available in 170 countries.
As demand for vehicle rental has increased over the past three months, Free2move has established mobility hubs across Europe and the United States, with fleets of vehicles available by the minute, week or month, accessible via the Free2move app.
The company claims to have developed a profitable business model for a sustainable mobility solution.
Once rented, vehicles can be taken wherever the customer wishes, with a default value of 155 miles per day. For customers traveling to the United States, Jeep Renegade or Jeep Compass vehicles are available.
Across Europe, Free2move customers will find a variety of options depending on the country, electric, plug-in hybrid or internal combustion engine, ranging from Peugeot 108, Peugeot 208 to Citroën C4, Opel Corsa, Opel Mokka, Peugeot 3008 or Citroën Spacetourer.
“At Free2move, customer experience is at the heart of what we do,” says Brigitte Courtehoux, CEO of Free2move. “Our dynamic solution is constantly evolving to anticipate our customers’ demands. And we are dedicated to growth and expansion – through our recent acquisition of Opel Rent, for example, we have expanded our fleets and the cities in which our services are offered. The summer months are traditionally travel months, and we know that Free2move Rent will provide you with the best vehicle access options for our customers.
As part of the Stellantis group, Free2move has the power to allocate more vehicles to the rental industry, especially during the supply shortage. Free2move is also integrated with Kayak and Skyscanner meta-search, making it even easier to access and be available. Free2move Rent also includes its own fleet, as well as access to fleets from providers such as Hertz, Avis, Budget and Europcar.
According to Stellantis, Free2Move is the only global mobility brand offering a complete and unique ecosystem for its personal and professional customers around the world. Based on data and technology, Free2Move places the customer experience at the heart of the company to reinvent mobility. It offers a range of services to meet the multiple travel needs of its customers from one minute to several days or months with a car-sharing service, short, medium or long-term rentals, as well as the reservation of drivers.
