    Health and safety measures for a car hire with Enterprise during COVID-19

    Car Hire with Enterprise during the Corona crisis Enterprise Rent-a-Car is a trademark of Enterprise Holdings, owned by the Taylor family based in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The Taylors’ connection to the car rental industry dates back to 1957, when Jack Taylor started leasing with just 7 vehicles. The company is part of Enterprise Holdings - the parent company of Alamo and National. The parent company unites all three companies and is one of the largest car rental companies in the world.

    Overall the three brands are similar, but address different market segments. The Enterprise brand offers more locations and additional perks in the form of discounts than Alamo. The latter focuses primarily on holiday car rentals. Among the three National is the premium brand. Enterprise enables travellers to pick up rental cars in more than 6.000 locations all over the world.

    For over 60 years Auto Europe has worked with numerous national and international car rental companies to offer cheap rates and first class service.

    Steps taken by Enterprise to reduce the spread of Coronavirus

    The staff members working at the open locations follow the best practises recommended the World Health Organization and health authorities to reduce the risk of coronavirus outbreaks. The following practices are used:

    • Limited number of staff members at pick-up stations
    • Social distancing
    • Staff members that feel sick have to stay at home
    • Frequent hand washing
    • Thorough disinfection of frequently touched surfaces
    • The use of disposable gloves and disinfectants for the cleaning of the vehicles
    • Customer interaction is minimised when picking up or returning the rental car
    • Team resources are secured
    • Employees have been made aware that if they feel uncomfortable at a location during their working hours, they are not obliged to continue working

    All additional precautionary measures for cleaning and disinfection between the individual rentals aim to protect customers and employees from being infected. In addition, clients are also asked to inform if they have been quarantined because of COVID-19, have been diagnosed with the infection, if they had symptoms or been in close contact with people that have been tested positive. Other measures include contactless rental transactions and, if necessary, execution to immediately isolate a vehicle for a period of time until the car is thoroughly disinfected according to the company's standard cleaning procedures. Some locations have started to provide an additional service of car hire delivery upon request. This is in an effort to minimise unnecessary contact at the counter, and during your journey to the office. Vehicles can also be picked up at roadside if desired.
