- The Spanish company opens new branches in the cities of Olbia, Palermo, Pisa, Catania, and Cagliari with the aim of expanding its coastal destinations.
- These offices join the four the company opened in 2018 in the main airports in the country south of the Alps: two in Rome, one in Bergamo, and one in Milan.
- Italy is the second foreign market in which Centauro Rent a Car operates, having begun its international expansion with Portugal in 2016.
Centauro Rent a Car strengthens its presence in Italy with the opening of five new branches in Olbia (Sardinia), Palermo (Sicily), Pisa (Tuscany), Catania (Sicily), and Cagliari (Sardinia). These offices, which aim to expand the company’s coastal destinations, join the ones it opened in 2018 in the Rome–Fiumicino, Rome–Ciampino, Orio al Serio, and Milan Malpensa airports.
With this new operation, the Benidorm-based company forges ahead with its expansion plan in the Mediterranean Basin and the European car rental market, making Italy one of its key markets and a strategic destination for its international expansion plan. Italy receives one of the highest numbers of travelers out of all the countries in Southern Europe and is an issuing market of tourism for the rest of the destinations where the company operates.
Erik Devesa, Centauro Rent a Car CEO, says, “We started 2019 with the most openings planned to date, strengthening our presence in the Mediterranean Basin. Italy is a strategic destination for its maturity and volume tourists it receives and issues. In 2018, we opened four branches in its major urban destinations, and this year, we will complete the offer with five new branches in coastal destinations to meet the demands of our national and international customers.”
The Spanish company offers an extensive fleet with a wide range of models in the country south of the Alps, which will be expanded throughout 2019 and which the company renews every year to guarantee maximum customer satisfaction.
Centauro Rent a Car began its international expansion in 2016 with the opening of its first two offices in Portugal, where it currently has four branches in major destinations: Faro, Lisbon, Porto, and Madeira. The company’s expansion plan includes opening locations in nine destinations outside of Italy throughout 2019 and consequently expanding its staff and fleet.
