Fox Rent a Car was founded in 1989 in Los Angeles, California. The company operates a chain of car rental sites at most major US airports, as well as in Brazil, Canada, Costa Rica, Curacao, Iceland, Jamaica, Guam, Mexico, New Zealand, Puerto Rico, Saint Maarten, Trinidad and Tobago, and Saint Lucia.
The company was started at the Los Angeles International airport by three friends who wanted to offer travelers a discount car rental service. The company started off with 6 new Nissan Sentras. There are now more than 20,000 vehicles, offices in 115 locations and in 33 countries around the world. The company is still privately owned and operated. In 2013, the company had annual revenue of $205 million.
Fox Rent a Car executives have stated that they have considered acquiring smaller rental companies, but haven’t yet found the “right” one. Company headquarters are still located in Los Angeles, near the airport.
