In July 2019, we expanded the Hastings Co-op family of businesses to 18, with the purchase of the local Enterprise Rent A Car franchise.
The acquisition was part of the Co-op’s overall strategy to diversify and seek out new opportunities for the benefit of members.
Enterprise Rent A Car is the world’s largest transport solution provider, with 1.5 million vehicles in 7,600 locations across 85 countries, while the local franchise includes 31 vehicles, from sedans to an eight-seater van and a removalist truck.
Customers can hire a vehicle by visiting the service desk at Port Macquarie Airport, phoning 1300 668 846 or clicking here.
We see a lot of potential for Enterprise Rent A Car, particularly in regard to offering electric cars and being able to offer discounted rates to members in the future.
It's also a great opportunity to diversify our energy division and places us in an ideal position to take advantage of new and emerging technologies.
