Osaka Rent-A-Car Association


The Osaka Rent-A-Car Association marked its 60th anniversary this year since it was inaugurated as the Federation of Kinki Drive Club on February 1, 1958. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to all of you for your assistance and cooperation. In recent years, because of the increased difficulty of car ownership in urban areas, more customers are interested in using a rental car than owning a car. In addition, as environmental and energy issues have come to the fore, using rental cars as an eco-friendly means of transportation has been drawing attention. To respond to these changes, the association places importance on compliance, so that customers can feel safer to use car rental services more conveniently. We are pledged to continue to promote eco-friendly driving and work together with the government to offer better services to customers and members in the future. 。
