A little bit of history
Centauro Rent a Car began in 1973 by Francisco Devesa and offered a fleet of half a dozen Seat 600 in the most well-known tourist destination of that time on the Mediterranean coast: Benidorm. Since then, the transformation of the company has been marked by the continuous need to adapt to the increasing evolution of habits and needs of both national and international tourists.
Present in the main cities and airports of the Spanish Mediterranean coast, destinations such as Alicante, Valencia, Benidorm, Torrevieja, Murcia, Málaga, Mallorca or Ibiza, we have continued to add other city destinations such as Barcelona, Seville, & Madrid, not only at the airports but also in the main AVE (high speed) train stations in the country.
From 2016 onwards, the expansion programme became international with the opening of offices in important markets such as Portugal, Italy & Greece. In Portugal, we have offices in the main destinations of Lisbon, Porto, Faro & Madeira, whilst in Italy, as well as being located at the main airports (Rome Ciampino, Rome Fiumicino, Milan Malpensa, Bergamo & Pisa), we also have office on the islands of Sardinia (Olbia & Cagliari) and Sicily (Palermo & Catania). For 2019, we open in Greece offering new branches on the mainland (Athens & Thessaloniki) and the Greek island of Crete (Chania & Heraklion). In that same year, the Mutua Madrileña Group acquired the majority shareholding in the company and integrated it into its business group.
We want to keep on accompanying you in your journeys. That’s why we are continuing this unstoppable strategic expansion programme, opening in new locations across Europe and consolidating our position in the Rent a Car sector.
