Vehicle rental company Enterprise Holdings has more than tripled its car hire capacity at Manchester airport by moving to a new, larger location at the hub’s car rental village.

As a result of the expansion, the company has also added eight new jobs at the site, including a branch manager, five graduate management trainees and two customer service representatives. The firm says more roles are anticipated in the future.

Enterprise says the expansion follows several years of double-digit growth in demand from both business and holiday renters through its Enterprise Rent-A-Car, National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands.

Customers will now be able to access a wider range of vehicles, according to Enterprise.

The expanded site can be reached via a free shuttle bus from the airport. Emerald Club members with National Car Rental can benefit from Priority Service, whereby they can bypass the rental counter and go directly to the cabin in the car park to receive expedited service.

Gary Palmer, general manager at Enterprise, said: “We’ve experienced major growth at Manchester airport and needed more space to provide an ever-growing number of customers more choice and a wider range of vehicles. This expanded branch will help us provide a comprehensive range of vehicles both to travellers and to customers located nearby, allowing us to offer an even better service to leisure and business renters.”
