Drivalia, the pan-European automotive rental, leasing, and mobility company from the Crédit Agricole Auto Bank Group, has achieved another notable milestone in its ambitious plans to expand its UK network with the opening of its new site at Haydock, Merseyside.

The opening of this site represents a notable milestone in Drivalia’s ambitious expansion strategy, as it signifies the 30th branch opening for Drivalia UK. With the goal of establishing itself as a leading car rental operator in the UK, Drivalia is poised to build on this achievement by expanding its footprint to encompass as many as 80 locations across all major towns and cities by the end of 2024.

To achieve this growth objective, Drivalia is proactively seeking collaborations with car dealerships, car park operators, and traditional car rental franchisees. 

Network Operations Director, Paolo Ronco, commented:

“It is thanks to the dedicated efforts of our entire team that have propelled us from 23 branches in May to an impressive 30 branches by September. With the addition of Haydock to our operations, I am confident that this development will play a pivotal role in solidifying our position as a leading car rental company in the North West.

This is still just the beginning of our extensive network expansion strategy across the UK. With unwavering commitment and hard work from everyone involved, I eagerly anticipate further exciting branch openings throughout the country in the coming year, as we aspire to establish a presence in as many regions as possible”.

The launch of Haydock as a new location marks another significant stride in Drivalia’s commitment to offering motorists the broadest range of rental choices, in as many regions as possible across the country.

Whether it’s short or long-term rentals, or a new innovative subscription programme, Drivalia strives to deliver an extensive range of services throughout the country.

With this being the seventh new branch opening in just five months, Haydock proudly joins Nuneaton, Oxford, Norwich, Winsford, Hull, and Sheffield in expanding Drivalia’s presence to previously uncharted territories across the country.

And there are many more locations on the horizon, stay tuned for forthcoming exciting announcements concerning these expansion initiatives in the near future.
