----- quote from Imperial's website -----
Imperial Car Rental is currently the largest home grown, South African born car rental brand. It was started by Carol Scott in 1979 with a humble fleet of nine cars in a small office in downtown Johannesburg.
Imperial’s philosophy has always been to operate with an entrepreneurial spirit, thinking big, but with the attitude and commitment of a small business. Personal service and attention to detail has been the foundation of the company with a focus on delivering “impressive” customer service.
Imperial currently operates a fleet of over 15 000 vehicles in more than 100 locations across eight African countries namely; South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe, Mozambique and Zambia. Its most recent branch opening was in the largely untapped market of Soweto.
Imperial has the largest share of the South African corporate market and a rapidly growing leisure market share which Imperial is well positioned to serve through its extensive network and wide range of product offerings.
Imperial’s attributes its success to date to consistently raising the service level bar, which is the key differentiator in this fiercely competitive industry. With its 24 hour service and willingness to go to any lengths for its customers, the company has revitalized and re-energized its twenty five year old slogan ‘Yours Personally’. Every person in the company lives the Imperial promise – “We will impress you”.
Through the decades, Imperial has become a household name and remains one of the strongest brands in the car rental industry.
