AB Car Rental buys the rental fleet from Island Car Rental Bonaire
Island Car Rental Bonaire, located opposite the airport, will close. As of December 1st, 2021, AB Car Rental will take over all cars and customers.
AB Car Rental has been renting reliable pick-up trucks and passenger cars on Bonaire for over 37 years. The expansion with the entire rental fleet of Island Car Rental fits in with the strategy of sustainable growth and expansion of its services. “When we heard that there was an opportunity to take over the entire rental fleet from Island Car Rental, we didn't hesitate for a moment and we quickly came to an agreement together,” says Luite Berkenbosch, General Manager of AB Car Rental.
From December 1st, current Island Car Rental customers will benefit from AB Car Rental's extensive services. For example, one can use the unique Full Coverage Plan, where a customer has zero deductible and pays no deposit. It is also easy for customers to reserve a car online. Luite explains: “Perhaps some might have to get used to the fact that they can no longer pick up their car just opposite the airport. We pick up customers at the airport and bring them to our location at Kaya Industria. There they receive the car. This process only takes a few minutes. As a result, they are still quickly on the road to enjoy the island!”
After years of hard work, Paula de Bruin, owner of Island Car Rental, ends her company. She wants to slow down and enjoy life. “It's the right time for me to stop. Both companies have worked closely together in the past and even temporarily shared a building. That is why I hand over the cars to AB Car Rental with great pleasure. I am convinced that our tenants are in good hands with AB. I’ve come full circle,” said Paula.
