Enterprise Rent-A-Car is an ongoing success story. Our guiding principles, and humble beginning, revolve around personal honesty and integrity. We believe in strengthening our communities one at a time. Serving our customers as if they were our family. And rewarding hard work. These things are as true today as they were when we were founded in 1957.
One man’s vision is how the Enterprise story begins. Back in 1957 Jack Taylor, a decorated WWII pilot returned home, with hopes to build a business and start a family.
Founder Jack Taylor selected the name Enterprise as a salute to the WWII aircraft carrier he served on, the USS Enterprise. Today, the “Enterprise” name is synonymous with the leadership and vision of the business.
Using lessons learned in the U.S. Navy—including the value of hard work, team spirit and simply doing the right thing—Jack embraced the novel concept of leasing automobiles, with a fleet of seven cars.
Enterprise is now a household name for frequent travelers and road trippers. We’re a brand that’s recognized as a worldwide leader in the car rental industry. Enterprise is part of St. Louis-based Enterprise Holdings, which also owns and operates the National Car Rental and Alamo Rent A Car brands. We value our employees and customers as much as a member of the family. Today Enterprise continues to drive success through a simple, yet powerful set of beliefs to become a leader in car rental, as well as in sustainability and innovation.
Today, our extensive network, fleet and range of services position Enterprise as part of the largest transportation solutions provider in the world. We offer our customers local and airport rentals, car sharing, exotic car hire and van hire, along with our Flex-E-Rent service, providing business solutions for specialized vehicle needs including temperature-controlled vans and accessible minibuses.

The Enterprise Rent-A-Car culture is built on a set of founding values that helps us build relationships with our customers, our communities, our partners and each other.
