Raising its profile in the highly competitive rental car industry, Fox Rent A Car has picked Austin for its Lone Star State debut. On Oct. 1, the Los Angeles-based company will open its first Texas location at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport.
Company executives hint that the airport rental office is the only the first step in a larger growth strategy. “The addition of the Austin location will provide countless more leisure, tourist and business travelers in the Midwest access to our deep-value discounts and convenient rental options,” said Fox Rent A Car COO Sean Busking in a statement. “Fox is planning additional expansion in the Texas market and is very excited to give our loyal customers additional rental options in that state.”
Targeting budget-conscious leisure and business travelers alike, Fox’s new location will operate seven days a week. The firm’s expanded fleet has a variety of vehicles available to travelers. Customers will be able to join the Fox Rewards program and participate in special programs, such as rentals for drivers aged 19 and older, group rentals programs, government and military rentals.
