Activa Contracts has launched a new personal contract hire (PCH) product aimed at firms with employees who are not eligible for or have opted out of a company car.
Activa Affinity Cars is a web-based scheme that allows drivers to select their choice of model, contract period, contract mileage and service, maintenance and repair level.
Activa Contracts says it is responding to an increase in demand for PCH.
The scheme is only available to employees of the firm's existing fleet customers.
Agreements under it are on a personal basis between Activa Contracts and the employee, meaning there is no impact on the agreement if the driver leaves their job.
Managing director Ian Hill said: "Employees that have decided to opt out of a company car scheme are more inclined to take their PCH car on a like-for-like service basis, typically requiring a full maintenance solution including tyres.
"They are maybe opting out of a company car scheme [due to] lifestyle reasons, employer constraints governing vehicle choice or rising BIK tax; but they [still] seek the hassle-free in-life comfort associated with a company-provided vehicle.
"Our clients want to be able to offer a trusted business provider to their staff and we provide all necessary assistance to ensure that details of the scheme are well communicated to employees, including the provision of roadshows and workshops to get the message across."
