Enterprise opens new branch at Cardiff Airport
Published: 01 February 2011
Enterprise Rent-A-Car, the UK’s leading rental car company, has recently opened a new, purpose built location in Cardiff Airport, as part of its commitment to developing its network of airport locations and its service to customers.
The new branch, which is conveniently located onsite at the airport just a 3 minute walk from the terminal, is the latest enhancement to Enterprise’s growing network of airport locations, which includes onsite branches at fifteen major UK and Ireland airports. It also forms part of Enterprise’s broader network of over 350 locations throughout the UK – the largest vehicle rental network in the country. In fact, three quarters of the UK population are within five miles of an Enterprise branch.
The new location’s convenient position next to the terminal building will provide both holiday makers and business travellers with easy access to Enterprise’s extensive fleet of cars and light commercial vehicles.
Pete Caltabiano, Managing Director for the Wales and South West region, commented: “This is a positive step forward for Enterprise in Cardiff. The offsite location of the branch that previously served Cardiff Airport was less convenient for our customers; the new onsite location allows us to provide an improved service to all our customers, both holiday makers and business renters.”
Focussed on enhancing the efficiency of service provided to all customers, the new branch is located within walking distance of the airport terminal and a prominent exterior profile makes it easy for customers to identify the returns area for their vehicles. The new location has also enabled Enterprise Rent-A-Car to reduce shuttle times for customers to the airport terminal by 30 minutes.
Pete Caltabiano concluded; “We place a great deal of value in being close to our customers and providing them with a service that’s as convenient as possible; a mission this new branch is helping us to achieve.”
Margaret James, Contracts and Quality Manager at Cardiff Airport added, “We are very pleased to welcome Enterprise to the airport as their presence will enhance our car hire provision for passengers visiting Wales, increasing both passenger choice and convenience."
Enterprise offers daily and weekend rental for private or business use and is specialist in providing replacement vehicles and courtesy cars, which are relied upon in the event of an accident. It also offers delivery and collection, plus an innovative and free of charge Pick-Up service.
