Alamo Rent A Car and Natiional Car Rental have announced that they are opening new service in Brazil.
A recent franchise agreement between Enterprise Holdings − owner and operator of Alamo and National, as well as its flagship Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand in North America − and São Paulo-based Unidas, a leading Brazilian car rental operator, will bring the Alamo and National brands to over 100 Unidas airport and city locations throughout Brazil by March 2013.
Under the 15-year agreement, Unidas operates as the National and Alamo franchisee at the new Brazil locations.
Five Brazilian airports − Guarulhos International Airport in São Paulo; Galeao Antonio Carlos Jobim International Airport in Rio de Janeiro; Tancredo Neves/Confins International Airport in Belo Horizonte; Brasilia International Airport in Brasilia; and Salgado Filho International Airport in Porto Alegre - are now offering Alamo and National car rentals.
Alamo is the third-largest car rental service in the U.S. and the largest car rental service for international travelers to North America. It was acquired by Enterprise in 2007.. Earlier this year, Enterprise Holdings acquired Citer SA in France and Atesa in Spain, and made a strategic investment in China-based eHi Auto Services.
