First Car Rental launches in Tanzania


First Car Rental has expanded its African operations by opening three new business units in Dar es Salaam (Tanzania), as well as additional operational presence in Arusha, Mwanza and Zanzibar.

The new business units form part of the company’s car hire partnership with Moustafa H. Khataw, CEO of Uniglobe Skylink Travel.

“We are witnessing an increase in flight frequency, new airlines and more hotels opening up in many parts of the country, which is a good indicator of economic growth. Therefore, it makes sense to partner with a well-managed and growing car rental enterprise such as First Car Rental,” said Khataw.

First Car Rental Tanzania offers a selection of 4×4 vehicles, plus a handful of budget and passenger vans. One of the new Tanzania business units is located within the 5-star Hyatt Regency building in the heart of Dar es Salaam. There is also a branch presence at Dar es Salaam’s Julius Nyerere International Airport.
