When you go to rent a car
you may find a large number of companies, but did you know that most companies are owned by the same four major companies? You see Avis owns Budget, Zipcar and Payless. Hertz owns Dollar and Thrifty. Enterprise owns Alamo and National. Advantage owns E-Z Rent-A-Car. If, however you look beyond the big companies that own everything you will find more competition and more choices. Independent car rental companies have the advantage of offering more customer care and are generally more flexible. They get to care and support the customer rather than the shareholders. Independent companies have more freedom as they don’t have to answer to one over-all company, it’s just the customer and them.
Pricing is another advantage, Independent companies have the freedom to do what they wish with pricing while the major companies have a set overall price. Independent companies are local so they deal with local prices and local companies whereas major companies have to deal with the corporate side of things. Because independent car rental companies only answer to themselves and their customers and don’t have to worry about the corporate side, the shareholders etc. they make the experience more personal. They are able to care about the customer and their customer’s satisfaction.
