ST. LOUIS, June 4, 2019 /CNW/ -- The world's largest car rental provider, Enterprise Holdings, today announced that its Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands are now available in Sweden, with the official opening of its first location in Stockholm's Arlanda Airport. The new branch is already taking reservations.
This follows an agreement between Shared Mobility A/S and Enterprise Holdings to introduce the three brands to Sweden. Enterprise is extending access to its car rental services across all of continental Europe by partnering with experts in each country who have a strong reputation for customer care. The Enterprise family of brands is already available in 100 countries, of which more than 40 are in EMEA.
The airport branch will serve a diverse and growing base of renters looking for access to a wide range of vehicles in addition to award-winning customer service. Enterprise plans to extend the business with further branch openings in the future.
Travelers using Enterprise, National and Alamo rental services in Sweden will benefit from a number of global customer programs. These include membership to Enterprise Plus and the Emerald Club from National Car Rental, both of which offer rewards based on the level of usage.
"Now is the perfect time to introduce Enterprise, National and Alamo to customers in Sweden. We have had a very successful start with our organization in Denmark, and we are looking to bring all that expertise and proud customer-centric culture with us to the Swedish market," said Ole Grønvold, General Manager for Enterprise in Sweden.
Grønvold added, "Our new airport location is already seeing significant demand from customers in the Nordics, UK, France, Germany and Spain, as well as those from North America. It is great to be part of a well-recognized, global organization with a reputation for excellent value and customer care."
"Our aim is to offer an integrated vehicle rental solution to our customers wherever they need mobility: where they live, where they work and when they travel across the globe," said Peter Smith, Vice President of Global Franchising for Enterprise Holdings. "Europe is a key part of our customer service proposition. We want to be where our customers need us, so they can have a consistent experience wherever they travel."
"As one of the world's strongest economies, Sweden is a vital part of building our European and global network. It is a growing market for shared mobility 'on demand', which is how Enterprise is developing its services to meet the needs of an emerging customer base. We are delighted to be partnering with Shared Mobility A/S to officially launch Enterprise in Sweden," added Smith.
