Travellers to benefit from new location in Puerto Rico

Alamo Rent A Car is opening its first Caribbean location in Puerto Rico, bringing travellers to the island a quality car rental experience that won't break the holiday budget. This is a new opportunity for Alamo as it continues to bring its stress free, cost-effective car rental service to holidaymakers around the world.

Located at the Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Alamo is offering travellers a choice of 700 vehicles including Suzuki Aerio, Chevrolet Malibu, Dodge Intrepid and the Pontiac Sunfire.

Sally Hinds Marketing Director of Alamo, comments, "The Caribbean is a very popular tourist destination and the opening of our Puerto Rican location is an illustration of our commitment to this region. San Juan is the central hub for leisure travellers to Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean, so it represents a key part of our ongoing expansion into the Americas.

"Alamo is dedicated to making car rental an easy and enjoyable part of any holiday and now customers travelling to Puerto Rico can experience the same level of service they already enjoy worldwide. This new location further strengthens Alamo's position as the first choice for car rental on a family holiday."
