National Car Rental Opens Fourth Location In Switzerland
|National Car Rental has opened a new location in Switzerland, in Lausanne, the home of the International Olympic Committee. The new Lausanne branch is National's fourth location in Switzerland and follows the success of two airport openings in Geneva and Zurich and another branch in downtown Zurich. National's fifth Swiss location is due to open in May 2005 in Fribourg/Dudingen.|
Lausanne is a major centre of commerce in Switzerland, providing the headquarters for several large multinationals and host to numerous International Conferences. The location is therefore ideal for National's expansion in Switzerland, meeting a demand from inbound corporate and leisure travellers as well as local businesses and residents.
National now has a fleet of over 700 vehicles in Switzerland , providing customers with a wide range of models to choose from, backed up by delivery and collection services.
Neil Summervile, Vice President Franchising for EMEA of National states "The opening of Lausanne, and shortly the location in Fribourg, is demonstration of our commitment to meeting the needs of our customers, both locally and those operating on a pan-European basis. These locations are an important step in our expansion programme across the whole of EMEA, ensuring that we are where our customers need us to be."
