Alamo, Enterprise and National Airport Reservations Increase 10% for Thanksgiving

Airport car rental reservations for Thanksgiving have increased more than 10% over the last year for Enterprise Holdings’ Alamo Rent A Car, Enterprise Rent-A-Car and National Car Rental, according to a Nov. 18 press release.

Alamo, Enterprise and National collectively hold more than one-third of all airport business in the United States and Canada.

“We know that millions of travelers will be at the airport next week with only one thing on their minds — reaching their families and friends in time to celebrate Thanksgiving,” said Rob Hibbard, VP of Enterprise Holdings. “As a result, we have been preparing for this annual travel peak for many months. Our fleet and our employees are ready to meet the needs of car rental customers from coast to coast.”

Roger Dow, president and CEO of U.S. Travel Association said, “It’s an encouraging economic sign that car rentals are up over last Thanksgiving. Last year, the car rental sector had an economic output of $33.5 billion and supported 152,000 U.S. jobs at 7,170 places of business across America.”
