All this reduces the vintage car market despite a record 2007 (reinforced by government incentives), but subject to a drop in registrations this year, well over 10%.  For the record, the first half of 2008 has seen the car rental industry as a whole (short rentals, long term and fleet management) to continue the race that has continued without interruption for over a decade, recording a turnover of +7% ( 2.367 million euros) over the first half of 2007 (2.212 million). The most interesting case of registrations that, after the stop of last year determined by the complex rules on taxation of the car business, demonstrate a + 9%, demonstration of the increasing penetration of services into new segments of demand.  Estimates are also excellent throughout the year 2009: revenues stood at 4.8 billion euro in total (+5% vs. 2008); same increase for the fleet moving from circulating 632.000 over 665.000 vehicles. A slight decline due to economic crisis and the great difficulty of automotive, with contraction order and reduction in registrations, which identify an end of the year to +4%.

Follows: data of the “green cars”  The substantial increase in 2008 demand for rental cars with low environmental impact (+100% over 2007, although still low-volume, close to 8,000 units) is an important sign of progressive interest in the environment and sustainable mobility an indication of a greater and broader social responsibility.  This trend is accompanied by the application of the latest generation of satellite navigation, particularly valuable not only for greater safety on the roads, but also for reducing consumption and thereby emissions.  Registrations by vehicle rental markets contribute to the rejuvenation of the entire fleet assets through high turnover of vehicles (fleet for 6-8 months in the short term and for 36 months in the long term) and continuous maintenance and checks on cars in the fleet for the limitation of emissions.  As for the score, the initiatives of many operators of charter to raise awareness of customers and the reduction of CO2 production is the best testimony of attention to issues in the field greens.  If at first you could think of a limited interest to multinational companies, largely due to reasons of image, or need to move (ZTL and exemptions for Euro 4), now is found to extend a real attention to the environment "on the fleets also in smaller companies and public administrations.  The supply of market participants engaged in supporting the "green car policy" of enterprise customers today is oriented towards the placing on fleet of environmentally friendly vehicles (mainly feed bifuel and hybrid), monitoring of emissions of the fleet and identification of solutions for reducing their environmental impact, provide advice for the new construction of a fleet that meets the parameters sustainable, safe driving courses, and low power consumption .

The long-term rental is increasingly involved  Among the customers of long term rental, fleet remains stable part of Public Administration (about 20 thousand between ministries, local government, regions, provinces and large municipalities) that now constitutes 2% of turnover in the sector.  Important aspect is the sharp jump forward (+15%) of all registrations, the result of the aforementioned excess of the 'uncertainty tax "that had clouded the 2007 and 2008.  This is, without doubt, a further element for which the customer is aware of the many financial benefits, economic, managerial and administrative aspects of hiring, having opted in 2007 for contract extension and reshaping of services and assistance, in 2008 confirmed the preference over other modes of acquisition of the vehicle.  In early 2008 the management services of vehicles owned by others (fleet management) have kept score positive indexes: +8% and +5% in revenues for the vehicles operated. These services are administrative (management and payment of fines, payment of fees, claims management) or relative to handling, washing and even insurance and vehicle maintenance.  On the market, there is an increase in the number of operators that offer fleet management and it is confirmed that the flexibility on the supply side of the industry attests to the diversity, but also the tendency to provide packages of services contained in client companies that choose different vendors to manage their fleet.  Estimates of the end of the year confirm the trend of the first half and foreshadow a closure of 12 months largely positive (+8%).

  11. 11. Success history:  The second element of success of this company is its ability to adapt their offer and work with customers, which is derived by the offer of a rental service in the long term.  The company in fact offers a “full comprehensive” service.  The control center of its headquarters in Milan, in fact, Milano Elegance collects real-time information on cars currently in use, for each of them the company can:  record the actual amount of time of use;  reduce the risk of any failures, knowing when they need preventive maintenance, and this in turn reduces the risk that the car is still outside the program, avoiding the resulting inconvenience to customers, enabling better planning of rentals;  in case of emergency, to quickly send a technical team at fault and collecting useful data to improve their next rentals.  It 'also important to note that in the automotive producers located very convenience in maintenance and spare parts: a little' as with razors and razor blades, the producer of engines for cars, not so much gains from the sale of the motor, but its maintenance and the sale of spare parts.  But with its own system, Milano Elegance has brought this concept to a higher level: not selling razor blades and then, but the beard makes directly to their customers every morning.  And this translates into unparalleled management control and Milano Elegance can therefore offer our customers very competitive rates.
