Enterprise Rent-A-Car signs up travel management operators

Corporate travel buyers in Europe can now more easily select Enterprise Rent-A-Car for their car hire needs in all major European markets, after it formed new agreements with a number of the world’s top travel management operators including American Express Travel and BCD Travel.

This growth into the travel management industry follows Enterprise’s major pan-European expansion programme both through acquisition and the appointment of franchisee partners.

Enterprise has now grown into one of the largest European car hire networks, which covers 29 countries from Turkey in the east through to Ireland in the west.

Enterprise already has established relationships with American Express Travel and BCD Travel in the US in order to meet the needs of business travellers in North America.

However, these new partnerships in Europe will enable inbound business travellers from all parts of the world to access a car hire network that is renowned for its customer care.

Rob Ingram, director of business development Europe at Enterprise Rent-A-Car, said: “Enterprise has always been proud of its heritage with business travellers in North America and within its wholly owned European markets.

“We now have the network across Europe to provide businesses with high value and outstanding service wherever they need to be.

“Partnering so closely with the travel management industry in Europe is an important step in our ambitious growth plans.

“Travel management companies offer vital services and advice to businesses looking for the most effective transport solutions.

“Through outstanding customer care and the right car hire solutions, our aim is to be the company of choice for all business car rental in Europe.”

Enterprise has a fleet of more than 100,000 vehicles and operates from more than 1,000 branches throughout the continent.

The Enterprise brand is currently available in Ireland, the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, The Netherlands, Italy, Austria, Hungary, Slovakia, Greece, Croatia, Turkey and Bulgaria.

Later this year, Enterprise will become operational in Switzerland, Turkey, Poland, Czech Republic and Israel.

The company is committed to continue its expansion programme to better serve its corporate customers.
