The satisfaction of our clients doesn't just help ARVAL

Every year our company conducts a satisfaction survey of its clients. The results help us in the constant improvement of our products and services. And not only that. Last year we decided to donate several hundred crowns to a good cause for every completed questionnaire. We supported the cultural and educational centre Elpida, which focuses on projects in support of senior citizens' active life, and we donated CZK 75,200 to it. At the end of March we launched another survey, and this time in the context of it we supported the endowment fund La Vida Loca.

Support for Kipepeo Foundation

This year Arval has started cooperation with the Kipepeo endowment fund (Kipepeo means butterfly in Swahili). The fund supports projects in Africa helping Africans improve the level of educational, social, and sporting facilities for orphans and destitute children. We believe that every crown helps, and so Arval has contributed an amount of thirty thousand crowns.

We have donated a practical gift to the La vida loca endowment fund

In order to support the "Life in a Suitcase" project, we have loaned a vehicle with a massive luggage space - a nearly new Opel Insignia Combi - to the endowment fund La vida loca. Thanks to this vehicle, the founders of the fund no longer have to take the train to visit abandoned babies. More about the project on http://www.nflavida.org.

ARVAL CZ has become the partner of the promising kayaker Jakub Špicar

Sport is very important to us in Arval, which is just one of the reasons we decided to support Jakub in his sporting career, which has seen many interesting successes over the past year. These include a first place in the Czech Championships for the 1000 metres and second place in the European Championship up to the age of 23 for K1 at 1000 metres. We hope that the loaned Opel Insignia will be a pleasant companion for two-metre tall Jakub, and that it will carry him down the road to further successes.

Another vehicle for the needy

Our work with the Pardubice Area Charity goes back to the middle of 2013. Over this period we have donated four vehicles for good causes, and now a fifth has been added. Amongst other things,  the Pardubice Area Charity ensures home hospice care and a care service for the needy. Out of the wide range of verified vehicles returned after operative leasing we found a suitable vehicle to expand our charity fleet.

Arval CZ has achieved the best ever quarterly results

During the first quarter of this year, Arval CZ increased the number of its vehicles in full service leasing by 1532. It currently manages a little fewer than 17,000 vehicles, of which 15,000 in the form of full service. According to the data of the Czech Leasing and Finance Association, this is the highest production in full service operative leasing of any firm on the market.

ARVAL CZ has crossed the boundary of 15,000 vehicles

During last year (a highly successful one) ARVAL CZ achieved record growth of 23.7% in the financed fleet. This is the best result in the 12-year history of the Czech branch. In contrast with the other players on the market, ARVAL CZ has been growing constantly since its foundation. This success is down to the efforts of the entire team, and primarily the great number of acquisition meetings. Last but not least it is also due to the high quality of the provided services. ARVAL CZ has a significant satisfaction rating amongst its clients, exceeding 82%. ARVAL CZ ended the year 2015 with a fleet of more than 15,600 vehicles

WE are entering a new dimension

Arval introduced new digital tools, whose development is part of the strategic program “ONE ARVAL”. The Company announced the launch of a unique offer in the area of telematics, the “Arval Active Link”, as well as the launch of a new international service, the Arval Webstore. Improvements were also made in the already existing services Arval Websites, Arval Analytics, Arval Fleet View and Arval Mobile+.

A number of tools have been improved and perfected with the aim of staying ahead of the digital wave and satisfying new and even the future needs of customers. Implementation of these digital transformations was made possible by extensive investments in infrastructure improvements across Arval. These investments are backed by specialized, fully engaged digital teams and by the creation of a startup for a range of offerings in the area of telematics.

Arval celebrates overcoming the 12,000 vehicles barrier

ARVAL CZ has posted growth in its fleet every year since its founding in 2003. In comparison with the competition, it is the only leasing company in the Czech Republic that succeeded in achieving such a record.


In 2007, the company recorded its surpassing of 5,000 vehicles, and just four years later Arval reached the 10,000 vehicles level. As of today, the second strongest leader in operational leasing in the Czech Republic can add 12,000 financed vehicles to its list of successes.
Standing behind the achievement of continuous growth by ARVAL CZ are four important steps:  the setting of right business strategy, high quality services, the establishment of perfectly functioning Account teams and last but not least, the successful implementation of new IT technologies and smart applications for fleet management.

Of course, the most important key to the success are the customers of Arval and their loyalty, which exceeds 80%, and Arval is constantly working on fostering this loyalty and on deepening its relationship with its clients.

ARVAL 2014 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Arval recorded strong business growth and exceeded its targets for 2014

In 2012, Arval launched a number of strategic programs that produced a number of interesting results in subsequent years. A great benefit for clients, for example, proved to be the more flexible choice of the lease period from the medium term to long term. There was also a greater complexity of outsourcing solutions and a number of innovative projects such as Arval Smart Experience started to run. The fleet concerns of customers and their drivers became even more the focus of Aral’s attention. Growth in the number of leased vehicles by 6% to 725 000 vehicles in 2014 shows, in comparison with 2013, that these initiatives are successful. This is also shown in the increase in the number of vehicles purchased by 30% to 223,000 vehicles in 2014 compared to 2013. The number of vehicles sold also rose, increasing by 3.4% to 184,000 vehicles.

“Our branch also recorded growth in the managed fleet in the past year, growing by 4%. We now take care of more than 13,200 vehicles. I am pleased to say that we are the only leasing company in the market that recorded an increase in the number of vehicles in the fleet in every year of its eleven years of operation,” said Jiří Solucev, Commercial Director of ARVAL CZ.
