Leasys arrives in Belgium


After Spain, France, Germany and the UK, the international expansion of the long-term mobility and rental company of FCA Bank continues.


The internationalization of Leasys SpA, the long-term mobility and long-term rental company of FCA Bank, continues with the presence, as of today, in Belgium, with a new branch of the Italian Holding.
After entering Spain, France, Germany and the United Kingdom, Leasys therefore takes up the announced expansion program abroad, arriving in a market that is mature in the leasing sector but still has significant growth prospects for long term rental, especially for what concerns small and medium-sized enterprises and the private customers target.


A market where Leasys will be able to measure itself immediately thanks to the variety and flexibility of its mobility solutions, which have already met the favor of new foreign customers, generating volumes up more than 20% in the countries where Leasys has arrived in 2017. In Italy, Leasys records an increase of about 5% of rented cars compared to 2016 - the record year with over 54 thousand vehicles delivered - and it is growing particularly in the segment of professionists and private individuals, demonstrating how private customers agree to evaluate rental when the proposal is clear, convenient and easily accessible. Overall, Leasys now operates a fleet of around 200,000 units (cars and commercial vehicles).


Leasys success is based on efficiency and innovative services thanks to digital technologies - a strategic asset in which Leasys continues to invest - and draws strength from the renewed range of FCA products, today able to respond to the most diverse mobility needs with Jeep Compass, Alfa Romeo Stelvio, Giulia, Fiat Tipo and Fiat 5oo, the latter capable of persuading even the Millennials, who hire it on Amazon.


Moreover, internationalization is part of the broader growth and diversification strategy of the FCA Bank Group, which aims to increase its market share by proposing FCA models more effectively at European level to the fleet and private markets. With the expansion of the reference markets, Leasys will be increasingly competitive and able to best meet the needs of its local and international customers: the goal is to become one of the top five European rental players within the next three years.


In Belgium, too, Leasys will "export" its flagship product in the last year - Be Free and Be Free Pro for SMEs and professionals - already the star of the launch campaign for Leasys operations in Spain, France and the UK.


Be Free and Be Free Pro, the innovative solutions created by Leasys and FCA, have revolutionised the idea of mobility and are as successful as ever. They are based on concepts such as simplicity and flexibility, also thanks to a complete technological portfolio and extremely competitive rates, with no down payments and, above all, without early return penalties.


Be Free is a simple, innovative, competitively-priced product, designed for motorists who want to feel free to use their car with no stress and without breaking into their savings. With a fixed monthly rate for the full duration of the contract, including VAT, Be Free includes third party insurance, road tax, breakdown assistance and the possibility of managing all car-related services with the Leasys App. And if you change your mind or your mobility requirements, you can return the car after the first year without incurring a penalty for early return.


With Leasys App, you can use your smartphone to gain direct access to all the services designed by Leasys to make your customer experience even more pleasant and complete. These include the virtual garage, the Find your car function, an alert for monitoring the speed limit and the services available along the route, such as fuel stations or customer assistance centres, 24-hour assistance throughout Italy and much more. The Leasys I-Care Smart infomobility system is also installed on board the vehicle. This means that the vehicle can be geolocalised and recovered in case of theft.


After the great success of Be Free developed for retail customers, FCA and Leasys have further revolutionised the concept of mobility with the launch of Be Free Pro for self-employed business people. The keywords are once again freedom, simplicity and flexibility. Today more than ever, professionals need smart and innovative solutions capable of adding value and simplifying their everyday work. With a full range of models and a one-of-a-kind economic portfolio, Be Free Pro allows everyone who uses their car for work to travel in total freedom choosing the car most suited to their needs. For mainly urban mobility, long-distance trips or prestige, with Be Free Pro all professionals can drive a new car without tying up capital and enjoying all the advantages of rental.


At the helm of Leasys Belgium is Danny Meulenberghs, under coordination by Jean-luc Mas, General Manager of FCA Bank Group in Belgium.
