LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2012) - Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) is the newest location to offer the Exotic Car Collection by Enterprise. The Collection, available in select cities throughout the United States, offers more than 50 makes and models of fully-loaded luxury and high-performance vehicles. Enterprise has operated The Exotic Car Collection for more than five years, providing a convenient and efficient way to rent luxury vehicles from Enterprise Rent-A-Car, a brand well known for providing outstanding customer service.
"The Exotic Car Collection by Enterprise has offered a range of premium, high-end rental vehicles for several years, and we've continued to strategically expand in those locations where customers demand luxury," said Steve Short, Vice President at Enterprise. "Our top-notch selection of vehicles includes Bentley, Porsche, Jaguar, Audi, BMW, Aston Martin, Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Maserati."
The Exotic Car Collection's "white glove" experience includes unparalleled customer service, personalized reservations, as well as delivery and collection of vehicle rentals for customers in nearby areas. With the addition of LAX, Enterprise now operates seven Exotic Car Collection locations in California: San Francisco, Encino, Newport Beach, Palm Springs, Pasadena, West Los Angeles, and now Los Angeles International Airport. Other locations include Scottsdale, Ariz., Atlanta and Las Vegas. As the opportunity arises, the Collection will look to expand in other locations.
From sports cars to luxury sedans and fully-loaded SUVs, the Exotic Car Collection is one of the largest rental selections of high-end rentals from premier automotive manufacturers.
"Offering Bentley through Enterprise's Exotic Collection allows consumers to get the exhilarating first hand driving experience of our high performance vehicles," said Tim O'Hara, General Manager, Bentley of Beverly Hills. "It's a great opportunity for even more consumers to ride in comfort and style whether they're in the market to buy one, simply trying it out, or want to make an occasion even more special by driving a Bentley."
Enterprise also launched exoticcars.enterprise.com to give customers an online destination to learn more about the Exotic Car Collection and begin the reservation process. The new website offers ease to the rental process by allowing customers to check the availability of a vehicle at specific locations, and view high definition pictures of the interior and exterior of the car, as well as the car's attributes. Representatives can be reached at 1-866-4-LUX-CAR (1-866-458-9227) to identify locations and check the vehicle availability. The booking process is personalized, giving customers the option to call the toll-free service line at any time, or to provide their phone number or email address for a prompt response by a customer service representative.
"The Exotic Car Collection by Enterprise has something for everyone -- from business travelers entertaining clients, to local residents looking to add a special touch to a big event, to simply enabling high end car owners to maintain the luxury of a high-end vehicle while their car is being serviced," said Short.
The large selection of vehicles provides customers with the opportunity to celebrate in style for special occasions, such as weddings, graduations, anniversaries or weekend getaways. In addition, long-term rentals, corporate billing and post and pre-pay fuel options are offered throughout most of Enterprise's Exotic Car Collection locations.
