Fleet Expansion For National Car Rental In Benelux
|National Car Rental has announced a significant increase to its fleet in the Benelux countries. National's partner across the Benelux countries, The Kroymans Group, has boosted its fleet considerably, now boasting a 2,500 strong fleet. The increase demonstrates National's continuing commitment to supporting business growth in the region. |
Customers renting a car in the Benelux region now have more choice than ever before, ranging from the smallest to the largest of vehicles. Citroen has been a major contributor to the recent expansion, with the addition of C1, C3, C4, C5, Xsara and Picasso models. Chevrolet has also been added with the new Matiz, Kalos, Tacuma and Nubira models, as well as the addition of the new Picanto, Rio, Cerato and Carens from Kia. For customers seeking a more prestigious drive or requiring more space for passengers and luggage the addition of the Volvo V50s estate, the Jaguar X-Type and the Alfa Romeo 147 and 159 provides the ideal solution.
In addition, National has launched a new premium product, National Exclusive, in the Benelux countries. The result of a partnership with Kroymans Breukelen, National Exclusive enables local customers to rent exclusive and prestige vehicles. The range includes a wide selection of Cadillac models (BLS, CTS, STS, SRX, XLR and Escalade), the Corvette Convertible and the Hummer H3, and all are available for the customer to pick up and return at Breukelen, near Utrecht.
Neil Summerville, Vice President of Franchising EMEA, comments: "The Dutch economy is already strong, seeing healthy growth in 2005 which has continued in 2006. With the latest additions to the fleet in the Netherlands, we will be in an extremely strong position to support this growth and meet our customers' needs. This latest fleet expansion also marks National's commitment to expanding its offering to give both business and leisure travellers more choice."
