What is an ACRISS or Sipp Code?
ACRISS is the Association of Car Rental Industry Systems Standards, of which Europcar is a member. The ACRISS codes are the vehicle category codes and are established to help provide common standards for use when booking car rental services through automated booking systems. These codes are also called Sipp Codes (Standard Interline Passenger Procedure) as defined by the Acriss.
Can I rent a van with Europcar?
Trucks/vans are available in selected countries at selected locations. Please review our Fleet Guide section or check with your Reservation Service Centre.

Can I choose the car/ truck model?
