Enterprise Holdings announced Feb. 15 that it is licensing its Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands to Eurocar Rentals Limited at the Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands. The airport operation is slated as a dual-branded car rental location at the popular Caribbean tourist destination for North American travelers.
“We are looking forward to working with Eurocar Rentals Limited in expanding the Alamo and National brands to Grand Cayman,” said Jerry Smith, vice president of franchise operations for Enterprise Holdings. “The National and Alamo brands will now be a part of a growing and thriving Cayman Islands community, and we will work to provide the superior service our customers have come to expect to new customers as well as our current loyal customers traveling out of the country.”
As a result of several initiatives underway to benefit the Cayman Islands tourism industry, the Owen Roberts International Airport is expanding to accommodate more aircraft and arrivals, including the Alamo and National location to provide visitors with an on-airport car rental option.
“Our close proximity to the United States means that many of the visitors to Grand Cayman are from North America and familiar with the Alamo and National brands.” said Matthew Bodden, spokesperson for Eurocar Rentals. “Through our partnership with Enterprise Holdings, we will be offering a wide selection of vehicles to thousands of travelers each year.”
The Alamo and National location offers daily, weekly and monthly rentals to meet customer demand, including economy, compact, and mid-size cars; convertibles and luxury sedans; and standard, soft top and large sport utility vehicles. The new location provides rental options to both domestic customers and international visitors coming to the island for business or leisure.
Currently, overnight visitors to Cayman Islands are at their highest levels since 2000. Trip Advisor recently voted the Cayman Islands as the No. 1 destination in the Caribbean, the No. 22 destination worldwide and No. 1 for best adventure tour and best beach resort. Additionally, domestic and foreign private developers are investing in the region to attract more visitors.
