Change driver behavior with ‘One More Second’ course

You may not always know how your drivers are performing on the road, but with LeasePlan, you have access to courses that can take your drivers from good to great. This 2-hour online training, powered by our education partner eDriving, helps drivers develop the right attitudes and behaviors necessary to maintain control behind the wheel.

You can sign your drivers up today for a discounted price – simply reach out to your account manager to get started.

Have your drivers logged into MyLeasePlan yet?

With a renewed focus on intelligent communications, LeasePlan is reaching out to each individual driver that has access to the MyLeasePlan app, but has not yet logged in. The app’s features are improving daily, and we’re just getting started. We’ve heard from drivers, fleet managers and even shops along the way and they agree, it’s pretty good! The fact that comes at no cost to you is just an added bonus.

So far, MyLeasePlan drivers can:

  • Locate fuel and maintenance shops nearby
  • Manage personal and company mileage reporting
  • Keep track of prescribed safety courses
  • View important vehicle information, including new vehicle order details
  • Monitor vehicle tag registrations, expirations and requests
  • Talk with Elle, the first virtual assistant in fleet

Help us communicate the benefits of having the MyLeasePlan app with your drivers. It’s hassle-free and it’s easy.

TollGuard is almost here!

TollGuard is a tolling protection service that makes safeguarding your fleet against violations easy and affordable. The solution will officially be live on Tuesday, October 1.

How do I know if my fleet is affected?

If your company is currently utilizing LeasePlan-owned vehicles, the TollGuard solution will likely cover your fleet. LeasePlan-owned vehicles are automatically enrolled into the program, so please be sure to reach out to your account manager to confirm your billing is set up properly.

Please note it may take up to 72 hours for enrollment to officially become activated. Your account manager may follow up with you if any additional information is needed.

What if I don’t have LeasePlan-owned vehicles, but I want to protect my fleet from unnecessary toll violations?

Our TollPlan solution can help! The program includes toll transponders, driver welcome packets and automatic TollGuard coverage for units outside of predicted tolling regions — and it works! Clients enrolled in TollPlan save roughly 80% on toll costs. For more information on TollPlan, reach out to your account manager today.

To reinforce LeasePlan’s commitment to providing world class fleet management services, we are introducing a solution for an issue that plagues all fleets within the United States.

TollGuard is a tolling protection service that makes safeguarding your fleet against violations easy and affordable. The program offers backup toll coverage to protect fleet vehicles against incurring violation penalties when tolls go unpaid.*

We are excited to announce all LeasePlan-owned vehicles will be automatically enrolled in the TollGuard program effective October 1, 2019.

Program Features

  • Fleet plates are enrolled in a TollGuard account with participating toll authorities.
  • If an enrolled vehicle uses an electronic tollway and the toll is not paid, the TollGuard account covers the toll, preventing a violation notice from being issued. Vehicles under TollGuard coverage have a secondary account from which the toll is paid, so no violations are incurred. Photographic record is only taken in the event of a violation. Some limitations apply.***
  • Fleets receive monthly consolidated toll activity reports, making it easier to recover violation-related costs from drivers.

Fleet Benefits

  • Save up to 80% on toll violation costs.
  • Reduce exposure to collections and other penalties, such as registration holds and vehicle impoundment.

About the Program

  • All LeasePlan-owned vehicles will be automatically enrolled in TollGuard.
  • Enrollment will begin on October 1, 2019.
  • Fleets should remind drivers with personal electronic toll accounts to add their fleet vehicle plates to their accounts before the enrollment start date. Drivers should ensure their personal toll accounts are in good standing and compliant with toll authority policies.
  • Vehicles covered by TollPlan, LeasePlan’s full-service toll management program, and in good standing are automatically exempt from TollGuard.

*Some coverage limitations apply. Non-Compliance: Vehicles with plates enrolled in an E-ZPass® electronic toll payment program must have accounts in compliance with the home toll authority; due to E-ZPass toll authority policies, TollGuard is unable to protect against violations related to non-compliance (e.g., negative account balance, expired credit card, transponder not in car, transponder misread due to excessive speed) issued by the home toll authority. Fleet customers will be liable for non-compliance-related violations issued to enrolled vehicles in the E-ZPass region. Toll Account Limits: Vehicles with plates enrolled in the Maryland E-ZPass or Washington Good to Go! toll programs may not be eligible for TollGuard enrollment; in those states, toll authority policies prohibit enrolling a plate on multiple toll accounts. Moving Violations: TollGuard does not protect against moving violations not related to unpaid tolls, such as exceeding the toll plaza speed limit. Fleet customers will be liable for any moving or parking violations not related to unpaid tolls issued to enrolled plates.

**Average toll violation penalty is based on the average penalty across all toll authorities weighted against violation frequency for each toll authority; toll violation penalties vary by region, ranging from $5 to $100 per violation event.

***The vehicle’s plate must be up to date in the TollGuard system.

‘Get in front of it’ using our Recall Management tool

How many recalls are hiding in your fleet? Here at LeasePlan USA, we were able to uncover 23 total – not bad, but definitely not permanent. Our drivers are already working on getting their recalls repaired.

Because of the sophisticated reporting, not only can our drivers see that their vehicles have open recalls – they can see the exact details, including affected parts and whether the recall classifies as a stop sale/do not drive. This information is vital to ensuring the safety of our fleet, and we are so excited to bring more fleets onboard.

Reach out to your account manager to find out how you can get started with Recall Management today.

TollGuard brings a new level of protection

Toll violations and penalties can add up. Just consider the costs: for a $1 toll, if your toll account is underfunded for any reason, you could end up paying up to $75 in fees. To mitigate against these types of unnecessary expenses, LeasePlan is putting a new program in place, establishing a backup toll account for all LeasePlan-owned vehicles. The new program, TollGuard, will be officially live on October 1. Find out what this means for you.

With Telematics, you don’t know what you don’t know

Join us for a quick afternoon chat about how to uncover key details you may currently be unaware of when it comes to your fleet. With telematics data, we’ve found the saying to be true: you don’t know what you don’t know. So, grab a cup of coffee and come hear about three companies that peeled back the data to see what was really going on in their fleet – and took action.

Will we see you on Tuesday, September 10? Register for the webinar today!
