This company is revolutionising car hire in Manchester

Rent a Virtuo for a day, a weekend or more - and seamlessly escape the city this summer behind the wheel of a Mercedes

We all feel like we need an escape right now – and that’s exactly where Virtuo’s seamless car rental service comes in. 

You can rent a Virtuo for a day, a weekend or more from their station at Piccadilly. The best part? Your phone is your car key so you can wave goodbye to counter queues, paperwork and hidden fees. Just show up, unlock and go.

This summer you could get behind the wheel of a Mercedes A-Class or GLA and hit the road from 1 to 90 days, with a generous 150 miles per day included. 

So, if you did a three day rental, you would have 450 miles that you can choose to use at any point on your trip. You can choose to add more at any point of your rental if needs be – so no adventure is limited!

And even if you’re not looking to go too far at the moment, there are plenty of places around the region for a great getaway, from elegant Cheshire or the picturesque Lakes to the rugged Peak District with its scenic roads.

The prospect of a staycation just got a whole lot more exciting, right?

And while owning a car can be a bit of a burden thanks to insurance, parking and maintenance costs, especially if it’s sitting largely unused, it’s still great to enjoy the freedom of driving when we’re craving a break somewhere a bit more remote – without the hassle of relying on public transport.

Virtuo, which launched in 2015, maintains their own fleet of over 2000 cars that are inspected, cleaned and reset after every single rental.

Their convenient app allows you to book and unlock a range of cars all through your phone, with no queue and no hassle.

You’ll always get the premium car you actually booked – and can easily add on extras such as baby seats, hassle-free, if you need to.

Plus you’re not bound by car rental office hours, so you can book and start your rental at any time, whether that be in the day or at night, whenever suits you.

Their friendly customer service team is always on hand via chat, email or phone 24/7 to help before, during and even after your rental.

And their heart’s in the right place, too. 

During lockdown, Virtuo gave their fleet to the NHS to ensure they could travel safely to and from work.
