UFODRIVE now open for business at Brussels Airport


Interparking VIP carpark at P1 Zaventem, 30 metres from the main terminal entrance, is the latest UFODRIVE location.

Offering the same groundbreaking fast track car rental that has been so warmly received in Luxembourg Airport, UFODRIVE is excited to bring its unique brand of no stress, no delay car rental to Brussels.

Launching with the Tesla Model S, passengers of Brussels Airport and locals alike, now have the option to drive the car leading the way in the transition towards sustainable Electric Vehicle mobility. The Model S combines incredible performance and comfort levels while producing zero CO2 emissions.

All of this is accessible in only 2 minutes using the advanced technology of the UFODRIVE App. Reservations, car pickup and dropoff are all managed intelligently and autonomously which means the driver can bypass the car rental queues and get on the road without delay.

Sincere thanks to our partners Interparking for all the support to date.

Booking for UFODRIVE Brussels is open on the UFODRIVE app and website.

UFODRIVE to launch in Hamburg from October 2018


Following swiftly on from the announcement of two locations in Brussels, Hamburg is the next step in UFODRIVE’s European expansion.

Hamburg Airport will be the site of the first UFOBay in Germany and will offer customers the same unparalleled convenience that has been so well received in Luxembourg. Car pickup and drop-off is immediately adjacent to both Terminals which is a real time saver as there are no rental desk queues to contend with.

“Hamburg is the next step in our planned European expansion after having successfully validated and developed the business in Luxembourg” said co-founder and Chief Operating Officer Renaud Marquet. Further expansion announcements are planned before the end of the year.

Advance booking for the Hamburg Airport location is open on the UFODRIVE app and website.

UFODRIVE at Paperjam’s 10x6 event on Business Innovation


Paperjam Business Club brought together a fascinating range of speakers at the 10x6 event on ‘Business Innovation’ at Limpertsberg on Wednesday 27th June. 10x6, for the uninitiated, is a fast-paced speaking and networking event that has become a mainstay of the Luxembourg business scene. Each of 10 speakers was invited to speak for 6 minutes on an element of innovation linked to their particular area of business.

Aidan McClean (CEO) and Renaud Marquet (COO) focused on the importance that ‘Time’ played in the idea behind UFODRIVE’s mission to re-engineer car rental from the customer’s perspective. UFODRIVE’s blend of innovative technology coupled with intuitive understanding of the customer experience aims to eliminate queueing from car rental and save valuable time on each journey. Transparent pricing, an uncomplicated booking and rental process allied with rapidly evolving Electric Vehicle technology further serve to enhance the customer experience.

Innovation may sometimes be obvious, but it is never easy. The challenge of moving from the traditional corporate environment cannot be underestimated but the creativity, support and enthusiasm evident in the startup scene in Luxembourg should encourage those who see a better way of doing something to just go for it.

Sincere thanks to Paperjam for organizing this inspiring event.
