New National Car Rental Locations In Czech Republic And Slovakia
|National Car Rental has increased its locations in both the Czech Republic and Slovakia, in order to provide vehicle rental services to the growing number of business travellers in Eastern Europe. National now has a presence in two new, key, airport locations in Slovakia. A new location in the Czech Republic has also been added, providing business travellers with access to high quality vehicle rental in more areas than ever. |
The addition of these new locations is central to National's strategy to develop its network in Eastern Europe, reflecting the region's economic growth and the increasing number of business travellers to the area. The expansion means travellers to the Czech Republic's Brno International Airport will now benefit from a new National location, increasing access to the south of the country. This adds to the already established National branches in down-town Prague, Prague Airport and Ostrava Airport in the east of the country.
In addition, from March 2007, National's Slovakian presence will include Kosice Airport in the east of the country, which joins the down-town Bratislava location and the desk at Bratislava airport opened in July 2006.
"These three new locations further enhance the level of service we can provide to business travellers in Slovakia and the Czech Republic", confirmed Neil Summerville, VP EMEA Franchising, National Car Rental. "Economic growth is expected to continue in these countries, attracting business travellers from all over the world and we aim to expand and develop to meet these new demands. The strength of our expanding network means we continue to offer our customers a premium rental experience where and when they need it."
Ludek Lefnar, Managing Director of the National operation in these territories concludes: "Both countries are seeing positive economic growth and this is attracting more business visitors. The latest expansion therefore includes a number of key locations, enabling us to help business travellers to maximise the commercial opportunities in the Czech Republic and Slovakia."
