  • How long does the process take to become a franchise?

Once your Franchise Agreement has been signed, it only takes a few months for your locations to become operational. Our team at the international head office will provide training and support to expedite the process. You can expect your locations to be up and running within around 10-12 weeks.

  • What background is expected to become a franchisee?

There is no need to have experience in the car hire business, although it is obviously a big plus. Experience in management and in running a business are encouraged.

  • What is the fee to become a franchise?

The fee to become a franchise depends on different factors such as how long the agreement is signed for or the territory you aim to acquire and operate. A franchise can be at a country level or location / regional level. Our existing franchise network also have sub-franchise opportunities. 

  • Will Green Motion help me to find cars for my fleet?

Absolutely, our connections with car dealerships can certainly support with this. Over time, we have developed strong relations with many of the major OEMs such as Toyota, BMW and others.

  • What training is provided?

Green Motion provides customer service excellence training, as well as extensive training on our dynamic pricing / revenue management system, internal reservations system and operational management training.

  • What franchises are available?

Green Motion has franchise opportunities in western Europe including France and Germany; we also are very keen to develop the brand in Latin America, Africa and Asia. To find out more about the availability of your chosen market, email [email protected]

  • What makes the Green Motion franchise different from the competition?

Green Motion is the only brand in the market to be eco-friendly and to provide a wide range of hybrid, electric and low CO2 emission cars. We are concerned with the environment, so not only do we supply our customers with green cars, but it is also our motto in our daily operations. We support charities and we launched our Green Heart initiative through which donations collected are invested in sustainable projects and the reforestation of the Costa Rican rain forest. Green Motion has consistently received accolades celebrating and awarding its unique position within the market and its achievements in promoting the environment.

Green Motion prides itself on our industry-leading systems, and the extensive knowledge and experience of our team, giving your business all the support it needs for success. 

  • What does it mean to be a Green Motion franchise?

Being a Green Motion franchise, you will certainly not be on your own. Our team is committed in supporting you on a daily basis. You will communicate directly with all departments: operations, marketing, finance, reservations, customer service, and business development. The team is always on top of things to assist with your queries. You will also meet regularly with the rest of the network: twice a year we host regional meetings, one in Europe, one in the United States. During our annual Conference you will be able to meet with all of your fellow franchisees and our Green Motion International team. Our annual conference is the opportunity to review the past year and discuss about our next projects and objectives. Our annual Conference always includes the Green Motion International Awards ceremony which is the highlight of the event, recognising and celebrating our franchisees for their hard work and dedication to the brand.
