Hertz Europe has expanded its monthly car subscription service My Hertz Weekend, which is now available in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom.
This flexible, cost-effective alternative to vehicle ownership provides customers with access to a car from Thursday to Monday, helping to make their weekends better and longer.
Vincent Gillet, vice president marketing, international, Hertz, said: “Following the launch of My Hertz Weekend in Italy in May, we’ve had very positive feedback, which encouraged us to expand the service to more locations across Europe.
“A convenient alternative to car sharing and leasing, My Hertz Weekend responds to the current shift in attitude regarding car ownership as well as to the growth in the renting and subscription economy.
“We are confident that it will tackle the needs of customers who, for instance, live in a city and don’t need a vehicle during the week, or families that own a car but need a second car during the weekend.”
After signing up, My Hertz Weekend subscribers benefit from the use of a small, medium, large or premium Hertz vehicle every weekend for a month or longer – with no long-term commitment required.
Customers do not need to book their pick-up each time; their car will be ready for collection every weekend of the month/s subscribed.
Subscribers pick-up and drop-off their cars at a “base” of their choice from a list of 50 participating locations in Barcelona, Bologna, London (St Pancras International), Madrid, Milan, Oxford, Rome, Turin, Cologne, Lyon, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Manchester, at flexible times.
My Hertz Weekend vehicles can be collected as early as 14:00 on Thursday and be returned to the same location any time before 12:00 on Monday.
In order to subscribe to My Hertz Weekend, renters must be members of Hertz’s complementary loyalty program, Gold Plus Rewards.
The program allows members to earn rewards, enjoy special discounts, and bypass counters at more than 50 of the world’s busiest airports.
Last month Hertz announced that it has earned the No. 1 overall ranking in the J.D. Power 2019 North America Rental Car Satisfaction Study. In addition to earning the highest score for overall Customer Satisfaction, Hertz also took the top spot in several key categories: reservation process, pick-up process, return process and cost and fees.
