Greece’s rent-a-car specialist, Batek, which runs the Europcar franchise here, picked up TUI’s 2002 “Best Service” award recently. Germany’s TUI said Europcar offices in Greece were Europe’s best thanks to their excellent cooperation and excellent quality of service.
As well, TUI renewed its 4-year exclusive cooperation contract with Batek. TUI, which is the world’s biggest tourism group of companies (Hapag-Lloyd, Thomson Travel, Fritids Resor, Nouvelles Frontieres, Alpitour), holds an international cooperation agreement with the Europcar group.
Europcar, the continent’s second biggest car-rental group, has been around for more than a half a century and is represented in 118 countries.
Its Greek representative, Batek, recently purchased, remodeled and opened new headquarters (3,000 square meters) at Metamorphosis just outside of Athens. With its continually renewed fleet of cars, the company services customers from 76 offices throughout the country.
