Today, Enterprise Rent-A-Car branches open for the first time ever in Chile – and National Car Rental and Alamo branches are open once again since exiting during the pandemic – through franchise partner Mediterraneo Automotores S.A., part of Circulo Autos. Circulo Autos is a family-owned holding company with 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 be available in five locations including two in the capital city Santiago as well as Talca, Linares and Antofagasta. Franchise expansion plans include introducing service to additional airports in Chile along with adding 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 opening in Chile is just one of numerous recent franchise openings across the region with Enterprise, National and Alamo branches being introduced for the first time ever in the U.S. Virgin Islands last month. 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, the business plans to open more franchise branches and provide service on the other two main islands of St. Croix and St. John.

The Cayman Islands also welcomed the Enterprise Rent-A-Car brand last month, with a new branch that services the Owen Roberts International Airport in Grand Cayman being established to complement the National and Alamo branches that were already in operation. Future plans in the region include a new tri-branded airport location featuring Enterprise, National and Alamo that will service the island of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.

Enterprise Mobility, through its franchisees, 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.”

Moke’n Caribbean Style

St Barts AirportMOKE International releases redesigned vehicle to meet today’s demands

CaribPR Wire New York, NY, Friday, June 13, 2014 – It’s been some time, but the wait is over: the popular Moke is back and it’s undergone some slight modifications.  These include a shortened name – MOKE – as well as a slighter wider for spacious body.  The redesigned MOKE has been engineered to comply with today’s vehicle requirements, ensuring for a more enjoyable and smoother drive.

In May 2014, Alain Edery was appointed the Master Distribution rights for MOKE throughout the Caribbean. He is already working with a number of top automotive dealers throughout the Caribbean to appoint MOKE sub-dealers.

In mid-May, Alain took possession of the new MOKE on St. Barts. Mr. Edery, an experienced International Entrepreneur and Rental Car Operator, for more than eight years in St. Barts, sees the potential of the MOKE’s revival.

Mr. Edery, upon receiving the MOKE, said it exceeded his expectations – from both how it looks and drives. “I couldn’t be happier with this fun car.  The MOKE is turning heads as I am driving around the island people are constantly coming up to me to ask where they can get their own new MOKE.”

The original Mini MOKE has a long-standing history in the Caribbean.  Which makes sense since the MOKE is a representation of the carefree, tropical island lifestyle.  People who waited for the MOKE’s revival won’t have to wait much longer.

It has been over 20 years since the last new Moke entered the Market.  Moke International has started producing the Mokes with the Caribbean being one of the initial five launch territories. The Caribbean is the superlative location for the MOKE because of its ideal weather, tourism-based economies and lifestyle the MOKE brand embraces. People will use the MOKE as their mode of transportation to relax while on vacation, enjoying the wind in their hair and sun on their backs.

MOKE International is pleased to have Mr. Edery on board because he understands MOKE and what it stands for. To learn more about MOKE International and the latest release, check out
