Fleet news logo

Enterprise Rent-A-Car is now available to customers in Belgium, Czech Republic, Cyprus, Bosnia Herzegovina and Macedonia.

It is the next step in the company’s phased expansion programme and means that the Enterprise brand is currently operating in 19 European countries with more in the pipeline.

The branches form part of Enterprise’s new European franchise network, providing a presence at strategic locations including major airports and cities across the five markets.

Over the past two years, Enterprise Rent-A-Car has extended its network across the continent to countries that represent more than 90% of the European vehicle rental market.

Enterprise’s growth is directed at increasing service, choice and value to international travellers, in particular to the many business and leisure renters who are already customers in their home country.

It says that this has been achieved through acquisition as well as the creation of partnerships with carefully selected domestic car hire companies that have reputations for excellent customer service.

Vice-president of global franchising at Enterprise, Peter Smith, said: “Customers who enjoy the Enterprise experience at home want to be able to rent vehicles from us when they travel abroad. This is why the expansion of the Enterprise network in Europe is so important.

“It has been driven by our culture and a belief that great things happen when we listen to our customers.

“The Enterprise name on a car hire desk means a lot to us. It represents our promise to deliver the best service to anyone who rents a vehicle from Enterprise.

“Our focus is to provide the same friendly service to our customers wherever they see the Enterprise sign. We are grateful to our franchise partners across Europe for enabling us to fulfil our promise consistently and to the highest standards.”

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

The Enterprise brand will be available in additional European countries throughout 2014.

    This might be the nicest car rental experience of my life. The staff was so friendly, starting with the drive who stropped the van to pick me up at the terminal after he'd already pulled away. The staff at the counter was so friendly that I was actually a little suspicious of how nice they were being! I'd booked online through auto Europe this time and had had a horrible experience in Scotland with some insurance stuff a year ago so I was terrified of how I might be screwed over this time. I always use enterprize and atlanticchoice services .Craig took care of my reservation and was just as nice as he could be. He took time to explain the "spare" tire, which was an air pump basically. Asked if I needed help learning the controls and even swapped me to a new car once we find a few chips in the windshield. Returning the car was the same. Super nice guy taking it back and friendly service on the way to the terminal. I highly recommend this branch and will be renting here again. Amanda G / Editor at atlanticchoice.com
