Thrifty Car Rental Announces its Entry into Ras al-Khaimah
From the onset of its car rental operations in the UAE, Thrifty Car Rental has set about establishing offices in strategic locations throughout the country and now announces the opening of its 21st outlet in the country and its first in Ras al-Khaimah.
Conveniently located in the Ras al-Khaimah Free Zone’s main building alongside other major companies such as DHL and Emaar, the new outlet reinforces Thrifty Car Rental’s reputation as a quality leasing and car rental specialist in the UAE. Already located in a number of key free zone locations throughout the UAE such as Jebel Ali Free Zone, Dubai Airport Free Zone and Dubai Media City, the move into Ras al-Khaimah constitutes a major part of Thrifty Car Rental's plans to expand its network in the UAE with several new branches expected in the coming months.
Demand from tourists, business travellers and new expatriates are providing new opportunities in Ras al-Khaimah, according to Mr. Rahul Singh, General Manager. “In the recent past, we have been witnessing an increased level of interest in our products and services from the Ras al-Khaimah region and with planned increase in business activity in the Emirates, we strongly believe that RAK will be an integral part of our growth story in the next few years”, Singh said. “Not only will this move help cater to the companies located in the Free Zone, but also provide car rental services to the tourists, residents and business executives of the Ras al-Khaimah region.”
Vehicles available to customers will range from the compact economy cars such as the Toyota Yaris, Honda Civic, and Chevrolet Lumina through to full size and luxury vehicles. The company proposes to offer both rental and leasing solutions in the Ras al-Khaimah market.
