Established in 1967, the British Vehicle Rental & Leasing Association (BVRLA) is the UK trade body for companies engaged in vehicle rental, leasing and fleet management.
On behalf of its 980+ member organisations, the BVRLA works with governments, public sector agencies, industry associations, consumer groups and other stakeholders across a wide range of road transport, environmental, taxation, technology and finance-related issues.
BVRLA members are responsible for a combined fleet of over five million cars, vans and trucks on UK roads, that’s 1-in-8 cars, 1-in-5 vans and 1-in-5 trucks. The vehicle rental and leasing industry supports over 465,000 jobs, adds £7.6bn in tax revenues and contributes £49bn to the UK economy each year.
BVRLA membership provides customers with the reassurance that the company they are dealing with adheres to the highest standards of professionalism and fairness. The association achieves this by maintaining industry standards and regulatory compliance via its mandatory Codes of Conduct, inspection programme and government-approved alternative dispute resolution service. To support this work, the BVRLA promotes best practice through its extensive range of training, events and information-sharing activities.
The BVRLA produces three annual corporate publications: The Annual Review provides and overview of the association's deliverables at the year end, the Annual Report publishes the association's statutory financial statement and the BVRLA Business Plan sets out the association's strategic priorities. Position Papers are also published quarterly outlining the association's position on a range of priority policy areas.
