Prepaid Service Contracts for New and Used Cars in Europe amalgamates comprehensive and in-depth research covering 20 countries in Europe, namely: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and the UK.
Based on a survey of 1,230 dealers in these countries and an investigation typically covering between 30 and 50 automotive brands in each territory, the study delivers unique insights into the market for prepaid service contracts for new and used passenger cars bought by consumers. Moreover, the research also generates data describing the value of the market for such contracts in each country in 2018 plus its growth since 2014.
In addition to this market data, the survey results are also used to measure the extent to which automotive dealers and manufacturer brands actually organise and intermediate prepaid service contracts in each country, to calculate average customer take-up rates for prepaid service contracts at the point of sale, and to understand relationships between manufacturers or importers and external providers for branded or endorsed programs.
