Alamo Rent-A-Car/National Car Rental/Enterprise Rent-A-Car

From CPTDB Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Alamo Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Enterprise Rent-A-Car are rental car agencies operating as subsidiaries under Enterprise Holdings Inc. They originally started out as separate and rivaling companies. For years, they have been known to operate shuttles at airports, transporting passengers from the airport terminals to their rental car terminals.

History

  • Alamo Rent-A-Car was founded in 1974 in Orlando, FL.
  • National Car Rental was founded in 1947.
  • Enterprise Rent-A-Car was founded in 1957 in St. Louis, MO as Executive Leasing Company (renamed Enterprise in 1969).

Operators

  • Alamo and National were acquired by Republic Industries (later renamed AutoNation) in 1996. AutoNation spun off its rental car division as ANC Rental in 2000.
  • Vanguard Automotive Group acquired Alamo and National in 2003 after ANC Rental folded.
  • Enterprise Holdings Inc. was established when Enterprise Rent-A-Car acquired Vanguard Automotive Group in 2007 and took over operations of Alamo-National.[1]
