Enterprise Rent-A-Car in France and Spain - ATESA and Citer SA rebranded
As of February 2013 two major European car rental brands, French Citer S.A. and its Spanish subsidiary ATESA, will be operating under the new name: Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
The U.S. based company, Enterprise Holdings, acquired Citer and ATESA in February 2012, as part of a plan to strengthen its position in Europe. The company is already present in Germany, Ireland and the UK. The UK locations of Enterprise Rent-A-Car include car rental stations in 23 cities.
Enterprise Holding is the world’s largest car rental company, with a fleet of over 1.300 vehicles and 8.200 agencies across the world. In the U.S. the company operates as Enterprise Rent-A-Car and also through its regional subsidiaries Alamo Rent a Car and National Rent a Car. After the rebranding, the new European acquisition will add 350 new car rental locations to Enterprise car hire network.

National/Citer car rental stations can be found in all of the busiest airports in France, amongst them at Paris Charles de Gaulle, Paris Orly Airport, Nice Côte d’Azure Airport and Lyon Saint-Exupery Airport, as well as in many city area and train station locations.
Usually National/Citer car hire offers in Paris can be found with prices starting from around £145 (Alamo) for a 7 days rental of a small city car in France.
