Manchester Central Gets a Grand Opening

Press Release   •   Oct 13, 2016 12:42 BST

Easirent Manchester Central opened its' doors this month with a new city-centre location, only 0.2 mi from Manchester Piccadilly, the busiest train station in Manchester.

Tourism has greatly increased in Manchester City Centre as well as Manchester hotel businesses creating a £7.5bn tourist industry last year. There are 1.15 million international visitors to Greater Manchester every year, of which 5 million delegates are travelling on business or to conferences. Meaning Manchester is now the UK’s third most popular city for international visits, after London and Edinburgh.

Knowing there is such a high volume of incoming passengers to the train station every single day, Easirent Car Hire has spotted the perfect gap in the market for a downtown car hire branch offering brand new cars and super low rates to Manchester city-goers.

The top attractions in Greater Manchester in 2014 by visitor numbers (UK and international) were:
- The Lowry – 866,773
- Museum of Science & Industry – 678,867
- Manchester Art Gallery – 531,904
- National Football Museum– 466,788
- Manchester Museum – 426,517

Easirent CEO decided that October was the best month to get the branch set up so they could comfortably prepare for the influx of Christmas Shoppers that will be hiring throughout the festive season. A good team has been set in place and the offices have been fully kitted out. Easirent MCR (Manchester Central) will also be able to offer Van Hire at low rates as well, having plenty of new vans on fleet at their nearby Manchester Airport branch. Newly appointed Branch Manager Tim says:

"The location is great; my team and I are already feeling the buzz of the city. Turnaround is always really quick, with the cars in and out and ready for hire. Plus it's mostly executive vehicles, business-type cars, you know? Your Mercedes', your Mondeos, your saloons with all the tech - people really love coming here when they need to drive around the city or pick-up clients."

The Manchester Central branch is located on Ducie St, right next to the Ashton canal and only a 4 minute walk from Manchester Piccadilly. If you're visiting the city for Manchester's famous Christmas Markets or simply want to explore and shop before heading to the airport, Easirent offers one-way hires to Manchester Airport. To book your car hire at Manchester Piccadilly, or to get a quote call 0161 696 4008 or visit easirent.com/manchester
