- Centauro Rent a Car is present in the main tourist destinations of the Hellenic country: Athens, Thessaloniki, Chania and Heraklion (Island of Crete).
- This operation will generate 70 jobs in Greece, including direct and indirect jobs.
- Greece becomes the third international market for the operations of Centauro Rent a Car, which already has a prominent presence in Spain, Italy and Portugal.
Centauro Rent a Car disembarks in Greece, furthering its ambitious expansion plan in the Mediterranean market after entering Italy in 2018 and Portugal in 2017. During the next year the firm will open four branches in the main tourist destinations of the Greek peninsula and archipelago: Athens, Thessaloniki, Chania and Heraklion (Island of Crete).
With these new openings, the Spanish firm born in Benidorm will be present in one of the most visited countries in the Mediterranean coast - 32 million travelers are expected this year, according to official estimates - and which is also a strategic destination for the company’s expansion plan.
Erik Devesa, CEO of Centauro Rent a Car has said: "We have decidedly counted on Greece because it is a mature market and also because it attracts enormous interest within our European customer portfolio. We want customers who already know us to come with us and visit Greece’s most picturesque corners!" On the other hand, Erik Devesa says that “it should be noted that Greece grows exponentially in visitor volume and stands out for a rich and varied touristic offering, as well as for an excellent quality in touristic services. In our international expansion plan, the Mediterranean basin represents a priority enclave for us to continue growing, with a firm step, in the European rent a car market".
The opening of these four Centauro Rent a Car offices in Greece will generate 70 jobs, 40 of them direct and 30 indirect. Centauro Rent a Car will have an extensive fleet of vehicles in Greece, distributed in 4 car lots to serve the peninsular and island branches. There we will offer a wide range of models that will be renewed before completing one year of activity, to guarantee the maximum satisfaction of our clients.
Since December 2018, the company has launched online sales for its new destinations in Greece.
