Interest in Spain is greater in men than in women, since almost 61% of users are men; and in people who live in large cities (Madrid and Barcelona top the ranking, with 33 and 25.5% respectively)
Interest in car rental is increasing in Spain, especially among people between 35 and 54 years of age. Specifically, according to Swipcar, the car rental marketplace, 46% of users belong to this age group. They are followed by those from 25 to 34 years old and those from 55 to 64 (each of these groups represents 17% of users). In addition, they ensure that
interest in renting is higher in men than in women, since almost 61% of its users are men.
«The average profile of our users is: a man in his 40s who wants the car for a period of 36 months. We really did not think that the market would evolve so fast and acceptance would be so great, but we are in what we like to call the moment of renting »confirms
Julio Ribes, CEO of the company “Today we are looking for comfort, agility and a good product that reaches your home, and that is Swipcar”, he adds.
Regarding the city of origin of the 300,000 users with whom this service already has,
Madrid and Barcelona top the ranking, with 33 and 25.5% respectively. They are followed by Valencia (with 8.9%), Seville (with 7.5%) and Malaga (with 2.9%). This achieved milestone is added to the figure of 1,800 million kilometers that have been covered, in just three years, with Swipcar vehicles (25% of them ECO).
In addition, according to the latest data available from the
Spanish Association of Vehicle Renting (AER), corresponding to the month of July, 16.2% of the total registrations of vehicles for rent in our country correspond to individuals and the self-employed. Of this last figure, Swipcar already covers more than 12.3% of the volume of operations, which again positions it as the leading company in the market in Spain. And it is that renting, both for companies and individuals
offers many advantages: choose a car, pay a monthly fee and not assume expenses derived from car maintenance, such as insurance, periodic inspections or tire changes.
