Free2move Acquires Opel Rent

Free2move has just announced the acquisition of Opel Rent, previously owned by Techno Einkauf and Verband deutscher Opelhändler (VDOH) Wirtschaftsdienst GmbH. The company says this move accelerates the Free2move growth while expanding the fleet and the range of services offered in Germany and Austria.

Adding Opel Rent to its network is a way for Free2move to expand service access and offer smart mobility solutions to its customers in more than 1000 agencies across Germany and Austria. Free2move is bringing Mobility Hubs across Europe and the U.S.A., with fleets of vehicles available by the minute, by the week or by the month. Free2move vehicles are accessed through the Free2move app and with each individual customer account – no additional paperwork is required. The ease of use and flexible vehicle access options have made Free2move Mobility Hubs strategic solutions for urban cities all over the world. 

Opel Rent has a network established in Germany and is known for its diverse fleets which include electric vehicles. Transforming from a rental service to a mobility group is at the heart of its current strategy. Opel Rent team is looking forward to transitioning to a complete vehicle access service provider under the umbrella of Free2move, in line with the “move with your time” brand signature.

“We are looking forward to serving the customers in these markets, with flexible vehicle options that cater to its individual needs. Opel Rent’s team with its expertise and skills will help us achieve both of those objectives” Alexander Momm head of Germany & Austria operations.

Free2move says acquiring Opel Rent is an important move to help establish a greater presence in Germany and Austria, as well as an increase in electric vehicles as part of their fleets, supporting the contribution of Free2move in Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.
