The firm has been owned by Eurazeo after its sale by the Volkswagen group. The company was founded in Paris in 1949. Europcar today operates a fleet of over 200,000 vehicles at 2,825 locations in 143 different countries covering Europe, North America, The Middle East, Africa, Latin America, the Indian Ocean, the Caribbean and Asia Pacific. While Europcar is an international car rental company, the brand is best recognized in the larger European economies, particularly, Germany, France and the UK. Their core markets are in leisure and corporate rentals. As part of a cost-cutting strategy, Volkswagen, who had become the sole shareholder in 1999 chose to divest from its Europcar holdings. On June 1, 2006, the sale of Europcar to French investment company Eurazeo was completed.
In 2007 Europcar purchased Vanguard EMEA for €670 million. Vanguard EMEA was the operator of National car rental and Alamo Rent A Car in Europe. As part of this purchase a partnership was made for any business that Europcar would send to North America it would be directed to National Car Rental, instead of their previous North American Partner Thrifty Car Rental. This arrangement for National Car Rental and Alamo Car Rental locations in Europe remained in place after the 2008 purchase of Vanguard Car Rental, Inc. by Enterprise Holdings up until December 17th, 2014 at which time Enterprise Holdings, Inc. was permitted to terminate the agreement. Europcar no longer operates any National or Alamo locations in Europe.
