Alamo and National Car Rental Brands Expand to Uruguay

Enterprise Holdings has announced the opening of the first location in Uruguay for its Alamo Rent A Car and National Car Rental brands. The office in downtown Montevideo is the first to open under a franchise agreement with Olecram SA, a Montevideo-based transportation company. The renovated branch will serve the business and leisure travel needs of National and Alamo customers, respectively, throughout the city.

Additional locations are planned for the Montevideo-Carrasco airport, in the resort destination of Punta Del Este (both at the airport and in the city center) and in the historic city of Colonia.

This new location marks Enterprise Holdings' entry into the Uruguayan market and completes the company's footprint in South America's "Southern Cone" region, consisting of Argentina, Chile and Paraguay. In addition, another franchisee, Sao Paulo-based Unidas Rent a Car, has opened Alamo and National locations at major airports in Brazil.

"Customers in Uruguay can now experience the dependability, affordability and convenience of the Alamo and National brands," said Peter A. Smith, vice president of global franchising for Enterprise Holdings. "Our new location in Montevideo is the latest example of how we are working together with our franchise partners to expand options for travelers throughout South America."

Dr. Martin Grande, director of Olecram, said, "We are pleased to bring business and leisure travelers in Montevideo the kind of service they have come to know and trust from National and Alamo. We look forward to serving customers throughout Uruguay in the months and years to come."
