Snippet of Car Rental Exec Interview on Chauffeured Transportation

Posted on February 27, 2008 by LCT Staff - Also by this author - About the author

TULSA, Okla. — Newly appointed Dollar Thrifty Automotive Group COO Jay Foley spoke to Business Travel News (BTN). One of the questions focused on other industries beyond car rental that the company may enter, such as Avis has done.

BTN: Other car rental companies also have focused on the replacement business, meetings and chauffeured transportation. Do any of these areas make sense for you?

Foley: We're not doing the limousine or chauffeured angle right now. We are looking at getting into some new aspects of the transportation chain. We have what everybody else has in terms of global positioning system units. We're offering the toll pass in all the cities where we can. We're trying to be quick in the market.
