Business Description

Sale of Brunel Carriage Limited from Europcar Mobility Group UK to the
Travelhire Group

Situation

Brunel, the London based private hire operator, has been acquired by the Travelhire Group which also owns Green Tomato Cars. The acquisition, which brings together two of London’s best known operators, will provide Brunel with a platform to develop its brand as part of a more sustainable and socially conscious organisation.

BDO Role

BDO’s Special Situations M&A team has advised Europcar Mobility Group UK on
the sale of Brunel Carriage Limited (“Brunel”) to Travelhire Group for an
undisclosed consideration.

Outcome

Green Tomato Cars was established as Europe's first environmentally friendly car service in 2006 and operates with the UK's largest fleet of Zero-Emission and Low Emission vehicles. Together, these industry leading operators will boast a fleet of more than 450 drivers and provide a sustainable and ethically focussed alternative to some of the bigger players such as Uber and Addison Lee.
