Enterprise Rent-A-Car reports that it has successfully bid on and received airport car rental concession rights on Kauai and Hawaii's Big Island. Enterprise, which operates at the Honolulu and Maui airports, will expand its service to Hilo and Kona, and Lihue, Kauai, on June 1.
“We are looking forward to providing Enterprise’s service not only to vacationers, but also to our neighbors, which will include special Kama`aina pricing and corporate programs,” said Paul Kopel, vice president and general manager. “In addition, we intend to hire locally to staff our growing operations in Kona and Lihue. This is a great opportunity to work with residents and become an integral part of the island communities we serve.”
Enterprise has expanded from one on-airport location in 1995 to more than 240 today, the company reports. In 2008, for the fifth year in a row – and the ninth time in the past 10 years – the Enterprise brand ranked highest in the J.D. Power and Associates Rental Car Satisfaction Study, which includes leisure and business travelers.
