Budget Car Rental Adds More Than 200 Locations in Europe
More than 200 Budget Car Rental facilities have just opened in Europe, helping to cement their presence on the continent — where they now have established over 400 locations in less than two years.
In a statement from Budget, the company announced that it has built and opened 208 new locations in France as part of an agreement with French rental company Rent A Car. Some of the new marquee locations include Paris, Aix-en-Provence and Marseille.
In addition to a new focus on the French market, Budget has added five locations at popular destinations in Italy, including Bologna, Milan and Rome.
Avis Budget Group president Larry De Shon released a statement about the company’s continued expansion into the European markets, saying, “The opening of new Budget locations in France and Italy helps us attract small- and medium-sized businesses to these local-market facilities while also showing our continued commitment to providing business and leisure travelers with convenient facilities, quality, well-maintained vehicles and excellent service. In fact, in less than two years, we have opened nearly 400 new locations to meet the growing demand for car hire in Europe's leading business and holiday travel destinations.”
Budget has shown a commitment to Europe long before the latest openings. The company already has rental locations in key countries such as Germany, Portugal, Spain, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
In addition to multiple locations springing up all over the continent, the Budget fleet in Europe consists of several kinds of vehicles — economy-sized, compact, full-size vehicles and SUVs — and customers can choose from optional products and services, including GPS navigation devices, tablets, child safety seats and insurance options.
