In the Czech Republic, Drivalia Lease started its operations under the LeasePlan brand, already in 1995. In 1996, LeasePlan handed over the first vehicle to the first client - the telecommunications company TelSource.
Until 1996, the concept of operational leasing was practically unknown in the Czech Republic, and no company offered such leasing. The car could be purchased either for cash or using the standard financial leasing. LeasePlan was the first in the Czech Republic to offer operational leasing.
Operational leasing for everyone
Initially, it was mainly foreign companies that knew it from their home countries who were interested in operational leasing. Over time, Czech companies have discovered these benefits too, and not just the large ones. Also medium and small companies with several cars can be found among our clients.
