In Spain VDL cooperates with strategic partners to introduce a completely new rental concept for Spain and Portugal

With a new progressive rental concept and the cooperation with new strategic partners VDL Bus & Coach Espaňa S.L. will continue to work unabated to offer tailor made solutions to its customers. Despite the recent challenges the market has been facing, the potential of buses and coaches remains undiminished going forward. 

“VDL Bus & Coach in Spain continues to reinforce its position in the market”, says Hector Rodriguez, Managing Director VDL Bus & Coach Espaňa S.L. “The new rental concept, using our fleet of used buses, that we offer is revolutionary and fully in line with the spirit of the times. For this offer the company Rentalbus S.L. was established, which is the first exclusive flexible bus rental company for passenger services in Spain and Portugal.” 

Perfect solution
Rentalbus offers the perfect solution for passenger transport companies. In this new concept VDL Bus & Coach cooperates with Onrent, a company that has extensive experience in renting out vehicles ranging from passenger cars to trucks. Both companies have decided to bundle their experience and know-how to create this new company, which presents itself as the most suitable answer for passenger transport companies in these times. Rentalbus has its own sales team and operates from its headquarters in Madrid. 

Rentalbus is the perfect solution for companies that need to renew their fleet and be present in the services and tenders that require a more modern fleet with the latest technologies. VDL offers Rentalbus and its customers the largest and most modern fleet of used coaches, ranging from 43 to 93 seats, including all services and options. VDL Bus & Coach has more than 250 vehicles available for this project. 

Extensive network
Transport companies need not to worry about unnecessary costs, indicate Dionisio Fernández, CEO of the new company, and Héctor Rodriguez: “Our coach rental offers them the opportunity to have the best, most adapted and modern fleet to meet their needs. In this way you can run your business more cost-efficiently and significantly improve profitability. Pay per use is the market trend on which our concept is based. Since its launch late last year, Rentalbus has already rented out more than a dozen coaches.”

Rentalbus will dedicate its business to flexible door-to-door rentals and will also have an extensive network of VDL agents throughout Spain, including the Balearic and Canary Islands, as well as in Portugal. It is an all-inclusive rental, including insurance, maintenance and service. Coaches can be hired for days, months or years, for periods of high occupancy or for specific services and with the total guarantee of meeting the needs of coach companies. 

VDL Bus & Coach Espaňa S.L.
It goes without saying that VDL Bus & Coach Espaňa S.L. will remain active in the field of sales of new vehicles, parts and after sales. Developments in the field of electric public transport in Spain are also closely monitored. Spain is one of the most important growth markets for VDL Bus & Coach in Europe. The sales organization was founded and has been active since 10 January 2018. Hector Rodriguez has been managing director since October 2020. 

Even if the market will change as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, the coach industry will continue to be of great importance to Spain and the tourism sector in particular. In order to optimally meet the demand, VDL Bus & Coach in Spain will continue to market its current Futura range with the existing FHD2, FMD2 and FDD2 double deck models. Alongside other actions to adapt to the new market conditions, VDL Bus & Coach in Spain will operate through a solid agent network. Rodriguez: “The COVID-19 crisis had created a lot of uncertainty, but we have taken our measures and are ready to show our consistency, dynamics and flexibility as a bus manufacturer.”
