Enterprise rent-a-car extend weekend opening to more UK branches

Following a successful trial last year, Enterprise Rent a Car are expanding the number of locations open 7 days a week.

After a trial in 2012 opening 18 locations across the UK for 7 days a week proved successful, Enterprise rent-a-car now plan to open over 50 of its 370 UK branches seven days a week.

All 17 of their UK Airport locations already operate 7 days a week, this will extend their reach to more highly populated urban areas and commuter belts.

Enterprise UK & Ireland managing director, Mike Nigro said: "Seven-day opening is one of the most immediately successful programmes we've ever introduced.

"The initial trial period showed extremely high demand for both collection and return of rental cars over the weekend."

"It's not just airport branches that need to service customers seven days a week."

"The ability to collect or return vehicles on a Sunday rather than waiting until Monday will ensure leisure travellers throughout the UK won't spend any more than they have to on rentals.”
