As the pace of change continues to develop, the BVRLA is working hard to ensure that members are provided with regular, rapid and repeated communications on all the latest advice and guidance relating to Covid-19.
The association has introduced a dedicated Covid-19 Business Advice section on the BVRLA website and will be sending members a series of Covid-19 Bulletin emails to help keep information flowing.
The BVRLA continues to liaise directly with a range of government departments (BEIS, Treasury, DfT, MHCLG, Cabinet Office) and stakeholders (Leaseurope, UK airports, CBI, Tourism Alliance) to ensure that the needs of BVRLA members are taken into account. Some of the urgent actions we have called for include:
- Excluding vehicle rental branches and car clubs from any future business or transport restrictions
- Asking airports to relieve rental branches from the usual fixed fees and guaranteed operational requirements
