The leading tourism vehicle rental company achieved a two-figure growth rate for the fourth year in a row.
Goldcar Rental, the leading tourism vehicle rental corporation, has achieved a new record increasing their rental figures over 15% during 2013 when compared to 2012. Since 2010, the company has managed to grow their business over 10% in each of the last four financial years.
Goldcar’s CEO, Juan Alcaraz affirmed “both the good development of the Spanish tourism industry together with the consolidation of our presence in Portugal and Italy have enabled us to attain and exceed all the goals that we set ourselves at the beginning of this year”. Our compromise towards offering the best, newest, and safest vehicles with the lowest carbon emissions at the best prices is still a great market success”.
An expansion plan developed with the opening of eight new offices during the past financial year has helped Goldcar’s Group increase its business. These new locations required investments over 70 million Euros and have resulted in the creation of over 120 direct jobs, with an additional 300 indirect positions. Three of the new offices are located in Italy -Rome-Ciampino, Bergamo and Milan-Malpensa airports- and a further five are nearby AVE fast speed railway stations in Alicante, Madrid, Malaga, Seville and Valencia. This way the company ensures coverage of a new market segment which includes AVE fast speed train passengers, in order to complement their office network over all the major Spanish airports.
2013 sees the creation of two new business lines
In addition to this geographical expansion, Goldcar Group has also opened two new business lines during 2013 under the Goldcar Fleet Services and Rhodium Car Rental brands. Goldcar Group’s MD Fernando Villar ensures that “both offerings aimed at the business sector have had a huge acceptance by the market and we are certain that they will benefit from the financial recovery that is starting to take place after years of negative figures and the ongoing destruction of the national business network”.
Goldcar Fleet Services provides fleet services to companies with the purpose of meeting their vehicle demands in order to develop their business. It offers a full quality service adapted to each customer’s needs, with unbeatable mid and long term rental proposals and flexible renting.
Rhodium Car Rental is a new Goldcar division created to meet the vehicle rental needs of the corporate market. It comprises a team of highly experienced professionals that guarantee the service’s commitment to transparency, diligence, safety and quality.
Goldcar Group therefore consolidates as a global supplier that meets the mobility needs of both companies and individuals with over 45 offices in three countries and three successful business lines: Goldcar Rental, Goldcar Fleet Services and Rhodium Car Rental.
