Subscription

Athlon Flex enables employees to adjust their mobility to changed family requirements and new circumstances of working and living. Athlon Flex is a flexible alternative to the long-term leasing contract — it enables drivers of company cars to change their vehicle as they wish: Young families, for example, could change to a van or a wagon; diesel drivers could test an electric vehicle.

Athlon Flex is a digital solution providing those employees entitled to a company car with complete control over the budget available to them every month. They also have the opportunity of combining their company car with additional means of mobility such as public transport or an electric bicycle. The change between the modes of transport does not give rise to any additional costs or fees. Customers also get an exact insight into the effect on budget and taxes.
