National Car Rental To Open 50 Locations In Belgium & The Netherlands

 As part of its ongoing European expansion, National Car Rental is opening 50 locations in Belgium and the Netherlands during 2005 and 2006. This builds on the existing 17 locations across Benelux, seven of which have been opened in the Netherlands in the last 12 months. The expansion will lead to greater network coverage and service for business and leisure travellers throughout these countries.

The National business in Benelux is operated by the Kroymans Corporation, a major vehicle importer and distributor with motor dealerships across the region. This provides access to fleet from manufacturers such as Opel, Ford, Volvo, Kia, Saab, Volkswagen and Audi which make up the current fleet of around 1,800 vehicles.

National Benelux also offers customers personal navigation systems, special holiday rates and added extras such as road maps, weather forecasts and special cars on request from manufacturers, such as Cadillac and Jaguar. This all means travellers get the best quality rental experience for the best price.

Jan Mulders, Managing Director of National Car Rental Benelux comments, "In addition, National has invested in a new dedicated website for the Benelux region with tailored online services for our business customers. National customers can now log on to to obtain quotes and the best rates online.

"As part of the Kroymans Retail Group, which works with a number of motor manufacturers including Cadillac, Corvette, Chevrolet, Hummer, Saab, Opel, Aston Martin, Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo, Ferrari, Maserati, Kia, SsamgYong and Suzuki we can respond quickly to market demands. Our customers can have access to new models before they are available in the marketplace. This flexibility means we can adapt our fleet to the needs of our clients much faster than any of our competitors, with very competitive rates."

Neil Summerville, Vice President Franchising for EMEA of National said "This is an exciting period of expansion and illustrates National's commitment to continually expanding and developing its network. Travellers to Benelux will benefit from a superior National service, not only due to the opening of new locations but also because of the fantastic choice of fleet that are available to Benelux customers."
