Europcar has been operating for more than 50 years and they now have nearly 3,000 outlets covering 170 countries worldwide. There are 116 outlets in the UK, including Northern Ireland and most airports.
If you have not driven in the UK before there are certain rules you need to be aware of. Like the use of the horn the flashing of a vehicle's headlamps should only be used only to alert other road users of a vehicle's presence on the road. Having said that, the action actually can actually be interpreted in a multitude of ways - some of which are contradictory. These include:
Indicating that a driver is giving way to other road users ( 2 brief flashes)
Indicating that a driver is allowing another to change lanes on a multi-lane road (usually 2 brief flashes)
Alerting oncoming drivers that they are approaching a problem or speed trap ( a multitude of brief flashes in quick succession)
Complaining that other road users are driving inappropriately (for instance, by using fog lights unnecessarily, not dipping their lights when approaching oncoming traffic on country roads or not returning to the left hand lane to allow faster vehicles to overtake ( 1 or 2 long flashes)
Recognition of other motorists driving similar vehicles (classic cars, minis or sports cars).
A rule of thumb appears to be that short flashes are usually friendly and long flashes hostile.
