In 2005, Richard Lowden, the founder and chairman of Green Motion vehicle rental, reacted to the global need to take genuine and positive action to play a part in reducing the effects of climate change and set about creating what is now the world’s first vehicle rental company which is kinder to the environment.
The concept of the organisation was very simple - to give its customers, both leisure/retail and business, the choice and opportunity to rent greener vehicles, thus reducing their CO2 emissions while benefiting from greater and improved fuel economy. In developing Green Motion, he identified a real niche in the vehicle hire and rent-a-car market to provide a greener alternative to customers.
“Green Motion is now positioned as one of the industry’s strongest and most innovative brands. As a member of the Green Motion family, you will benefit from unrivalled support and training, unique brand identity and industry-leading technology, ensuring that your business is at the forefront of the new era of mobility.” - Richard Lowden
We are now present in 60 countries worldwide - more than any other dedicated franchise brand. We work closely with each franchise to understand their culture, customer behaviour, and channels to market to constantly grow as a business and provide the rest of the network with this knowledge so they can succeed. It really is a team effort.
We currently have over 600 locations worldwide, from fully serviced downtown locations, to hotel implants and fully chauffeured airport pick up points. We are already experienced in all areas from large central locations to smaller offices and so we have the skills, marketing and systems ready to go so you can hit the ground running.
We were the first international brand to introduce direct connectivity with OTAs and online travel brokers, putting its brand in reach of all global car rental customers. We achieved this via our dynamic pricing system, which ensured that our franchisees remained in complete control of their localised pricing with the online brokers, aggregators and OTAs. We now are now able to provide our franchisee's with access to over 50 brokers and OTA's, giving them instant access to a pool of millions of potential customers.
Our 100% franchised model allows us to be completely dedicated to supporting our franchisees and providing them with the necessary training, on-going support and advice, allowing each business owner the time to concentrate on the development of their local market.
As a franchisee, you will have the option of utilising our global front-counter car rental system which is regarded as one of the very best within the sector, and offers a real and fresh alternative to some of the legacy systems available. Our front counter system is fully integrated in real time with our pricing and yield management system, along with our direct to brand channels including our industry-leading app.
We will fully brand your rental location, and have a team in house to support you with all of your marketing needs. Your success is our success, and we're here to help you make a splash with our vibrant and modern branding, and leading technology app and websites.

Tero , Finland
"One of the main reasons we chose to join the Green Motion franchise network is due to the strong environmental ethos, as well as commitment to providing the very best service to every single customer. While neither of us had any previous experience in the car rental sector prior to joining Green Motion, the help and support we have received from the Green Motion International team from day one has been excellent. We have been able to develop the Green Motion brand in Finland, and are proud to be welcoming customers to the home of Santa Clause, and giving them the opportunity to play their part in helping the environment by renting with us."
