Budget Car Rental reported Oct. 29 that the company opened 60 new car rental facilities in Spain during the first half of 2012.
This expansion brings the total number of Budget locations in Spain to 99.
Budget's car rental fleet includes vehicles from Audi, BMW, Citroën, Ford, Mercedes, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Renault, Seat and Volkswagen. Budget Spain also offers GPS navigation devices, child safety seats, vehicle damage coverage options and personal property protection packages.
“We believe Budget has been under-represented in Europe, so we've made it a priority to expand our network to better serve value leisure travelers,” said Avis Budget Group President of Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Larry De Shon. “Our expansion in Spain will better position us to generate incremental bookings and drive sustained, profitable growth across the EMEA region.”
Budget Car Rental expects to open an additional 25 facilities by the end of the year.
