Tulsa, Oklahoma – The U.S.-based Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group has announced that its value brands, Dollar Rent A Car and Thrifty Rental, will open locations in Poland for the first time later this month.
As part of a master franchise agreement with Armada Fleet Management Service of Warsaw, the company opened a dual-branded, in-terminal location at Gdansk Lech Walesa Airport this month, and plans to be operational in Katowice International Airport as well. Three more locations are scheduled to open by year end, including a location at Warsaw Frederic Chopin International Airport and suburban locations in Gdansk and Warsaw.
The company will feature a mix of vehicles and manufacturers, with an emphasis on Toyota vehicles; Armada Fleet Management has about 400 short-term and 3,500 long-term lease vehicles, and its principal shareholder also owns the largest Toyota dealership in Poland. It is expected that 80 per cent of business will be corporate, with the remainder to leisure customers.
