THE HISTORY OF EUROPCAR & MSIC TRANSPORTATION
Since 1949, Europcar has been in pursuit of outstanding service and unwavering commitment to its customers. It is currently the world’s leading car rental company and operates in 6 continents with airport, city and provincial locations strategically placed to serve everyone in need of transportation.
On 01 January 2003, MSIC Transportation, Inc. (operating under the name iNFiNiTY Rent-a-car) began its operations with ten vehicles of different makes and models. It was the exclusive limousine provider to the Hotel Intercontinental Manila in Makati City. MSIC Transportation Inc., was handpicked by Europcar to be its Philippine representative and franchise licensee as they share the same mission and vision of professionalism and excellence.
In October 2006, MSIC Transportation Inc. forged a partnership through a franchise agreement with the Europcar Asia Pacific (ECAP). The Bangkok-based ECAP handles franchise agreements and general operations in the Asian region as well as Australia and New Zealand. Part of the Asia Pacific franchise network includes Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Fiji, Laos and Cambodia.
On 28 April 2008, Europcar Asia Pacific was acquired by Europcar International (ECI). This gives the Paris-based company direct operations in markets outside of Europe for the first time and enhances access to the fast-growing Asia-Pacific market.
