Enterprise Mobility expands in the Caribbean and Latin America

Enterprise Mobility is expanding its footprint in Latin America and the Caribbean by announcing more vehicle rental and mobility options for business and leisure travelers.

Enterprise Rent-A-Car branches opened for the first time in Chile on January 30, 2024, and National Car Rental and Alamo branches have opened once again post-pandemic – through franchise partner Mediterraneo Automotores S.A., part of Circulo Autos.

Family-owned holding company Circulo Autos has more than 30 years of experience in the mobility industry including a car dealership group that operates 18 locations across four cities in Chile.

Enterprise, National and Alamo brands will now be available in five locations including two in the capital city of Santiago as well as Talca, Linares and Antofagasta. Franchise expansion plans include service to additional airports in Chile along with additional branches in other major city centers.

“Circulo’s robust infrastructure – dealerships, body shops, maintenance centers and more – provide an excellent foundation for future growth and expansion,” said Paulo Rodriguez, AVP of Global Franchising – Latin America and the Caribbean at Enterprise Mobility. “Expansion into Chile is an important part of our global growth plan, which is designed to ensure our customers have greater access to the brands they know and love, no matter where they travel.”

The Chile opening is just one of numerous recent franchise openings across the region with Enterprise, National and Alamo branches introduced in the U.S. Virgin Islands in December 2023. Following the opening of its first location at the Cyril E. King Airport in St. Thomas, the largest international airport in the U.S. Virgin Islands, Circulo plans to open more franchise branches and provide service on St. Croix and St. John.

In addition, the Cayman Islands welcomed the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand in December with a new branch servicing the Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman complementing the National and Alamo branches already in operation. Future plans include a new tri-branded airport location featuring Enterprise, National and Alamo to service the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.

Through its franchisees, Enterprise Mobility now operates in more than 30 countries and territories in Latin America and the Caribbean, covering the vast majority of countries in the region. 

Established in 1957, the business has a global presence with a network of more than 9,500 neighborhood and airport rental locations in more than 90 countries and territories and 90,000-plus global team members.

“All of our partners provide the world-class customer service and operational excellence that our customers have grown to know and love,” said Rodriguez. “We’re thrilled to deliver more unforgettable customer experiences for business and leisure travelers across the region.”
