Swift express rental was founded by late Sir Richard Bronson in the mid-eighties (1985). He was one of the pioneer tour guides of his time, ferrying tourists from point A to point B sailing boats around the island and showing off the Mauritian aquatic splendor to the tourists who came in search of adventure. Every once in a while he will use his old beat down beetle (Volks Wagen). During the course of his services, development improved around on the island with construction of new road networks and just then he decided to invest his savings in buying cars, moving his business mainly to car rentals and thus became swift car rentals. Over the course of time Richard Bronson, expanded his business as his customers increased, buying more cars and employing more staff till he passed away in 2008. His son Peter then took over and was only able to manage the business for five years, business dwindling and loss of customers pushed him to sell the business. In 2013 a group of friends bought off the business, maintained the name but embarked on a rebranding campaign by buying new cars, renovating old office buildings, building new outlets and developing new advertisement strategies. Realizing that days gone are the days of old where newspapers, television, radio and handbills were the modus operandi in information dissemination, swift express rental have upgraded their advertisement portfolio by introducing and delving into ‘Social Networking Strategies’ to help improve and bolster their clientele by reaching out to a wider, vast, and more specific target audience with the sole aim of improving their customer base.
