Special Savings From Hertz for the Holidays and Into the New Year
Planning a trip in the U.S. this holiday season or in the New Year? Hertz will help you save money with 'Last Minute' and 'Suburban Location' specials, available on its website, www.hertz.com. The "Last Minute" program, with rates as low as $17.99 per day for a weekend rental, is in effect immediately through January 6, while the "Suburban Location" promotion, with daily rates as low as $19 dollars a day ($17 dollars for AAA members), is in effect through March 31, 2003.
"In time for the upcoming holidays, we are able to offer 'Last Minute' prices between December 9 and mid-January because of short term, excess capacity in the industry caused by the seasonal slow down in business travel," said Brian Kennedy, Hertz' Executive Vice President, Marketing and Sales. "However, anyone who needs a rental car during the holidays should book as soon as possible because many rental locations will sell out during the last week of the year," he added. Kennedy also said that the Company expects fleet levels and business travel to return to seasonally normal levels by the middle of January 2003.
Effective immediately for rental pick up through January 6, 2003, Hertz' Last Minute Specials are available at 24 city airports across the US, including San Jose, Portland, Nashville, Knoxville and Greensboro. Weekend rates start at $17.99 per day, $137.99 for weekly rentals, for a compact car. To reserve these Last Minute Specials, customers must ask for Rate Code (RQ Code) LAST at time of reservation.
Available for rental pick up through March 31, 2003, Hertz' 800 suburban locations are offering weekend rates for a compact car as low as $19 per day, $17 for AAA members, and weekly rates of $139, $125 for AAA members. A Saturday night keep is required for both Suburban offers and there is a maximum rental period of four days for the weekend rates and a maximum rental period of 14 days for the weekly rates. To receive this special offer, customers must ask for Rate Code (RQ Code) LOCAL at time of reservation.
All offers include unlimited mileage and advanced reservations are required. All offers are subject to availability and black out dates may apply. Standard rental qualifications and return restrictions apply.
