At CarJet, we wanted to give you a little bit more background to some of the car hire companies you could be renting a car hire from… Remember, booking a car hire with CarJet means you can choose the car hire company you pick up a car from! First up and because I've been in France recently, a little bit of background on National/Citer...
National/Citer is a car hire company you'll see a lot of in France. Citer actually started life back in France in 1968 renting Citroën cars to companies. But things have moved on since then and Citer have been affiliated with global car hire company, National, since 1998.
If you're renting a car a National / Citer car in France, that's exactly as you'll see it. They have a fleet of around 15,000 vehicles across France and offer a range of options from economy cars to minibuses and high-end cars. Offering car hire in close to 250 locations, which include 63 airports and 40 train stations.
According to their website, you can expect to get a car hire that will have an average fleet age of 3-5 months as well as have been systematically reviewed…
One of the qualities you'll find they pride themselves in is their commitment to having more environmentally friendly cars . 65% of their cars in 80% of their locations are either 'green' or emit a low level of emission… Bear in mind that fewer CO2 emissions often means more fuel efficient so gives you savings too!
National/Citer is also one of the car hire companies we do a lot of work with.
