Carolyn Wall, formerly franchise manager of Europcar in the UK, has been appointed managing director. She said: 'We believe we can be successful in applying our modus operandi in the UK. We think the high service standards we apply will make a big impression and win us market share.'
In the past four years in South Africa alone, Europcar has grown its turnover by 280%. The new franchise locations are in Reading, Basingstoke, Croydon, Woking, Portsmouth, Southampton, New Malden and Bournemouth. The operation has about 700 vehicles.
