    Surely you mean they are working with new suppliers in those locations and not actually opening physical offices since they are a broker? - come on chaps, get the facts right.

    Hi Karl

    We apologize for misleading or not clarifying in the original post that Economy Car Hire operates an affiliate network. The company has partnered with existing rental locations to deliver bookings through its reservations network. We have changed the wording in the article to reflect this. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
