About us


At Arval, we are constantly adapting to the ever-changing needs of our customers. As the concept of mobility evolves and expands, so does our vision.

The world, and our markets, are taking a new turn towards a profound transformation. Today, people have an extensive range of mobility options; climate change has become a major issue; regulations are tightening; and usership is gaining ground over ownership.

All these factors feed into our vision, "Life is a journey made of journeys". In other words, our options are endless: we can change jobs, ambitions, locations and minds as seamlessly and regularly as we want. The common thread throughout all our journeys is mobility. It´s what gives us the freedom to go where we want, to be who we want to be, to make change happen.

For these reasons, Arval has set itself the mission of improving people´s lives through personalised and sustainable journeys. We want to provide a broad range of options beyond the car, accounting for everyone´s aspirations, whether their priority is to save time, be more responsible or simply be comfortable.

This philosophy is summed up by our tagline, "For the many journeys in life", an expression of this change in times and habits in a world where everyone has the freedom to choose their own path, and that each path taken has a positive impact on our society and our community, and preserves our planet. We commit to bringing you flexible solutions and a seamless experience in a responsible way, every day.
