First Car Rental is happy to announce that it has opened a new branch in Potchefstroom, North West province. This brings the total number of First Car Rental branches to 51 nationwide and the number in North West province to three, adding to the two existing branches in Klerksdorp and Rustenburg. The new branch is located in Nelson Mandela Drive, Potchefstroom.
First Car Rental, which celebrated 16 years of operations in April this year, has been meticulously expanding its African footprint in order to provide greater options to its customers.
This year, First Car Rental signed multi-year full content global distribution agreements with online travel commerce giants – Travelport and Sabre – giving close to 500,000 travel agents, tour operators, airlines, hotels, car rental companies and businesses worldwide real-time access to First Car Rental’s booking portal, vehicle rates and associated services.
In 2014, First Car Rental opened two new branches in Mpumalanga and launched operations in Tanzania. The company currently has four branches in the major Tanzanian cities of Arusha, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
Says Melissa Storey, Executive Head of Strategy, Development and Marketing at First Car Rental, “Over the years, First Car Rental has been successfully maintaining its position as a modern, reliable car rental company in South Africa and Tanzania. We strive to continue this pattern of accelerated growth while delivering the highest quality service and streamlined business operations.
The launch of our 51st branch comes just in time for the holiday season and our customers in Potchefstroom will have access to our first-rate cars, unbeatable prices and excellent customer service,” she adds.
