We have adapted our organisation in recent days to proactively address the escalating Covid-19 situation. In this context and as part of BNP Paribas, we rigorously follow the directives of our Group and strictly apply the recommendations of the competent authorities in each of the markets where we operate.
The very essence of our core business, full service leasing, is to protect our customers by allowing them to outsource the risks to Arval and BNP Paribas that are associated with the funding, owning, managing and selling of vehicle fleets across the world.
As of Monday 16th March, most of our team members are working from home in a full digital environment, keeping the physical presence in our buildings adapted to the local situation in each of our markets.
Rest assured of the total mobilisation of our teams towards you, our customers and partners, whilst protecting our own teams’ health as well in these challenging times.
The frequently asked questions and answers below will inform you about the influence of the measures on the delivery and use of your lease car.
