ST. LOUIS, March 6, 2015 /CNW/ -- Enterprise Holdings announced today that it is expanding into Latin America with the appointment of Grupo ANC as an Enterprise Rent-A-Car franchise partner in Costa Rica, Guatemala and Nicaragua.
Enterprise Holdings, through its regional subsidiaries, operates the largest fleet of vehicles in the world through a global network of more than 8,600 neighborhood and airport locations. The company also owns and operates National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car as well as its flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand.
Along with Enterprise Rent-A-Car's debut in the Caribbean in 2014 and its continued expansion in Europe, these new Latin American operations underscore the ongoing growth of the brand. "The launch of Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Latin America means international travelers and local residents can experience the brand's renowned customer service and great rates," said Peter A. Smith, vice president of global franchising at Enterprise. "Costa Rica, in particular, is an extremely popular tourism destination for our customers, making it a great starting point for extending the Enterprise brand into Latin America."
Enterprise Rent-A-Car will serve customers at Daniel Oduber Quiros International Airport in Liberia and Juan Santamaria International Airport in San Jose, Costa Rica. Enterprise also will open a downtown office at Momentum Lindora Plaza in San Jose. All Costa Rica locations are now open and operational.
In Guatemala and Nicaragua, reservations made through Enterprise Rent-A-Car channels will be served by Drive Alliance partner National Car Rental at its current rental locations at La Aurora International Airport in Guatemala City, Guatemala, and Augusto Cesar Sandino International Airport in Managua, Nicaragua.
