Dollar Thrifty expands its network in Germany
Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group has expanded its network in Germany with 116 additional locations throughout the country. The new branches began operating in major German destinations as of January 1, 2015.
The recently launched Dollar Thrifty airport and downtown branches enlarge the brands’ existing network in some of the most important German destinations such as Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Cologne and Munich. Additionally new locations have been opened across popular German tourist destinations such as Dresden and Nuremberg.
Tom Kelley, Vice President, Dollar Thrifty International, said: “Since the beginning of 2013, the international growth strategy of Dollar and Thrifty has been focused on the most important destinations in Europe. So far, we have added over 320 Dollar Thrifty dual-branded locations in Europe, enlarging our DTAG’s global network of more than 1700 branches, to better cater to our customers’ mobility needs.”
Rafael Girona, Managing Director, Hertz Germany, added: “Integrating Dollar Thrifty to our corporate network in Germany is a key step towards the consolidation of Dollar and Thrifty as global brands.”
Since February 2013, when DTAG announced its expansion in Europe through openings in Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Netherlands and Spain, the brands continued to grow their presence in the continent. Dollar Thrifty is currently also operating in Austria, Greece, the Balearics Islands, Portugal and Switzerland with further expansion planned for 2015.
