08 Feb Goldcar strengthens its presence in Portugal with a new office in Azores
Located on the island of Terceira, it’s the second branch in the Azores and the sixth in Portugal
Goldcar, a market leading company in the car rental market, announces the opening of a second office in the Azores archipelago. The new branch is located on the island of Terceira, at the international airport of Lajes which is just 15 kilometres from the capital, with an annual transit of 500 thousand passengers.
The company continues with its ambitious expansion plan to settle in popular international tourist locations, with the Portuguese market one of its main investments.
As Juan Carlos Azcona, CEO of Goldcar, points out, “The Azores is a great tourist destination and a huge potential for tourism and offers excellent growth opportunities to Goldcar. This opening demonstrates the company’s commitment to a market as important as the Portuguese and allows us to consolidate our position in the holiday car hire market.”
The island of Terceira, one of the main destinations of the Azores, is renowned for its natural beauty from being a volcanic island. In addition, since its foundation in 1534, it was the first town in the Azores promoted to city level and classified as a UNESCO World Heritage.
Now, travellers who disembark directly at Lajes airport and decide to rent a vehicle can rely on the wide range of Goldcar services at competitive prices, including vehicles of all categories and models, with which to enjoy all the wonders and beauty spots of the Azores.
With the opening of this branch, Goldcar now has a network of 97 offices plus franchises in 16 countries. The objective of the company is to continue in the coming months with its geographical expansion both in Europe and in other international destinations.
