Hertz Introduces The Fun Collection To The UK

 Following successful launches in the US and Europe, the Hertz Fun Collection is now available to rent in the UK. Customers can choose from a selection of fun cars that are great to drive and allow them to enjoy the freedom of the open road. Available now, the UK Hertz Fun Collection will initially include the Mini Cooper S, the classic Alfa Brera, Volkswagen Beetle Cabriolet, and the Volkswagen Eos.

Additional makes and models will be added to the collection over the coming months.

Appealing to everyone's sense of adventure, the new choices give car hirers in the UK the opportunity to turn a traditional driving experience into an exciting journey. Neil Cunningham, general manager Hertz UK comments: "We want our customers to share our love of the road, and the range of cars available in the Hertz Fun Collection gives customers the chance to do just that. Due to a change in demand for the UK market we decided to broaden the choice of vehicles we offer our customers, and when planning travel we want car hire to become an exciting option for both leisure and business customers."

The Hertz Fun Collection first launched in the US at the end of 2005, and due to popular demand was extended to selected countries in Europe. These countries have also found a high demand for the range, and as a result, the collection will not only be making its debut in the UK , but additional vehicles have been added to the collections in these countries. For example in Germany, Hertz now offers the convertible Audi TT Roadster, Peugeot 307 CC (convertible), Mercedes SLK convertible, and the BMW 3 series convertible. At Amsterdam airport, and on request from selected locations in the Netherlands, customers can try out the Ford Mustang convertible, Saab 9-3 Convertible, Hyundai Tucson, and the Volvo XC70, and from May 2007, the Alfa Spider (Brera) will also be introduced.
