Enterprise Development

Europcar is committed to transformation and empowerment and we will continue to pursue and enhance all facets of empowerment in our business, so as to continue our positive contribution to the well-being and development of our society through our socio-economic development contributions, skills transfer, and enterprise development initiatives.

We have adopted a proactive strategy in our enterprise development approach that seeks to maximise owners' equity by contributing towards capital equipment to foster the creditworthiness and cash flow viability of our assisted businesses. Through this initiative, we have established three black-owned car rental agencies in Bela Bela, Mafikeng and Mogale City.

To ensure the success of these businesses, the company facilitates training programmes, offers technical and other assistance, provides expert or specialised advice, and supplies information and guidance on running a successful car rental company. The vehicles are supplied by Europcar and our total capital investment per annum in these agencies equates to R4,4million.

The agencies are monitored and assisted with their day-to-day tasks by a Business Development Manager and Regional Operations Manager employed by Europcar.

Agency staff members attend the following internal training programmes facilitated by Europcar: Induction, Introduction to Products and Services, Products and Services Car Rental, Customer Service and Communication, Business Writing Skills.
