Inchcape nets retail deal with Barclaycard

Inchcape has set up a deal to sell nearly new cars via the Barclaycard website as it looks to broaden its routes to market and source greater numbers of ex-fleet models. The deal has been established through Inchcape's online car sourcing operation Autobytel. It allows customers to view and order vehicles up to four years old online.

The £712m turnover group has established a number of new initiatives over the past few months, including Buyacar with the AA and AutoCascade, a pan European remarketing venture with Avis. “The stronger the range of routes to market, the more product we can source and the more efficient we become, particularly with our logistics operations,” says Inchcape finance director Alan Ferguson.

Inchcape has an agreement with Fiat to refurbish and sell ex-fleet cars through the dealer network. The group is now in talks with other manufacturers and leasing companies as it bids to boost volume for the Barclaycard deal.
