Fast Rent a Car boosts capital presence with new branch
Company reveals over Dh120 million invested in 1,800 new vehicles
· Free car upgrades mark opening of Al Shareef Tower branch in Abu Dhabi
Abu Dhabi, 4 May 2011: Fast Rent A Car has opened a new branch in Abu Dhabi to enhance the company’s presence in the UAE and make its market-leading range of services accessible to even more customers. To celebrate, the Emirates’ leading locally owned vehicle rental agency is offering visitors to the outlet free car hire upgrades on daily rentals until end of May 2011.
The opening of the new branch comes as Fast Rent A Car reveals that it has invested in excess of Dh120 million in purchasing over 1,800 cars, and buses over the past 18 months, as part of a major fleet rejuvenation programme designed to ensure that customers are offered the widest possible range of vehicles. The company has enjoyed great success over recent years, bucking the general downward trend caused by the global recession.
The new branch is located on Corniche Road, next to Ittihad roundabout, just behind Central Market and opposite the Abu Dhabi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, making it easily accessible to the many businesses and residences that make up this busy neighbourhood. The branch offers the full range of vehicle rental services, including daily hire, long-term private and corporate leasing, and chauffeur-driven luxury cars.
The spacious office is home to some 20 employees who have been trained to provide the highest standards of customer service for which Fast Rent A Car is renowned – in 2009 the company was the first car rental agency to receive a Silver award in the service category of the prestigious Sheikh Khalifa Excellence Awards scheme.
To mark the opening of its newest Abu Dhabi branch, Fast Rent a Car is offering customers a free upgrade on daily rental for group Group A or B cars until end of May. Combined with special discounts, this means that it is possible to drive away in a 1.8L Nissan Tiida for under Dh100 per day.
“At Fast Rent a Car, we are committed to providing our customers with a combination of affordable car hire and the best possible service, and this is clearly appreciated as our continued growth over the past few years demonstrates,” said Ahmed Abood al Boasy, Group General Manager at Fast Rent A Car. “Our new Abu Dhabi branch will help us to offer this top-class service to even more people in the capital.”
Fast Rent A Car specialises in providing business and private customers a wide range of rental vehicles. The company has 15 branches across the UAE, and a rental fleet of over 7,000 vehicles to suit all transportation needs and budgets.
