Budget looks to expand its network

Budget Rent a Car has added four new locations to its UK network following the appointment of Regal Vehicle Rentals as a franchise in the North West. The four new locations are Chester, Manchester South, Warrington and Workington. Budget now operates 80 locations in the UK and is actively seeking to expand its network further.

Des McCann, director of UK operations, says: “This new appointment signals our intention to grow the network in the UK. The Budget Warrington and Workington locations will be servicing the bulk of BNFL's corporate vehicle rental requirements at Risely and Sellafield.

“We aim to add at least six more franchise locations before the end of the year.”

Regal Vehicle Rentals, which will now trade as Budget Car and Van rental, is based in Chester. Currently the company employs over 50 staff and operates a fleet of over 350 cars and vans. The fleet size will be increased shortly to 500 units.
