Virtuo raises €7.5m to expand its 100% mobile-powered car rental platform

SEP 14, 2017

We are delighted to announce today that we are leading an investment of €7.5m in Virtuo, the leading start-up in Europe for 100% mobile car leasing founded by Karim Kaddoura and Thibault Chassagne.

This 100% mobile car rental company plans rapid expansion in France and Europe, expanding its service to Belgium and Switzerland before approaching the UK.

Premium cars are bookable through Virtuo's mobile app at railway stations and airports.

Last year, Apple voted Virtuo the "Best App of the Year."

In just one year, Virtuo’s progress has exceeded our expectations. The Virtuo app is transforming the car rental sector and puts freedom back in the hands of thousands of customers.
