Hertz Prestige Collection Enters Europe
|Following the successful launch of Hertz Prestige Collection in North America in 2001, Hertz has launched its Prestige Collection at select European destinations. Combining a range of high quality vehicles with Hertz' exclusive customer services, the Hertz Prestige|
Collection in now available in England, Germany and France.
Brian J. Kennedy, Executive Vice President, Sales and Marketing, commented, "The Hertz Prestige Collection complements Hertz' core business with a new niche market for prestige vehicles and first class service. Before launching the collection in North America, we believed there would be a market for luxury rentals among business travelers, vacationers, people traveling to special events and those who just want to try out a great car or SUV. Our thoughts have been confirmed and we've been pleased with the response of our customers. Expanding the Hertz Prestige Collection to select European cities is a logical move for us."
Introduced with the discerning renter in mind, the European Prestige Collection features luxury vehicles such as the Volvo S80 and V70, the Mercedes CLK Convertible, Mercedes E and S Class, BMW 5 and 7 Series, all of which can be reserved by model. Service aspects of Hertz' European Prestige Collection include:
* Model specific reservability of vehicles
* Dedicated on-site staffing to assist customers and escort them to their cars
* Vehicles parked in easily accessible dedicated parking bays
* Vehicle specific user guides will highlight key benefits and features
* Reservable through Hertz' toll-free reservations line or through one's local travel agent
* All cars hand detailed before rental.
Initially, the Prestige Collection is available at Heathrow and Gatwick Airports in England as well as the company's downtown London Marble Arch location; at Charles De Gaulle and Nice Airports in France, and at Frankfurt, Munich and Dusseldorf Airports in Germany. Additional locations will be added during 2003.
