Hertz, the world’s leading general use car rental brand has launched a specially-tailored Family Collection in seven countries across Europe, featuring spacious and comfortable vehicles ideal for travel with family and friends. With Hertz’s Family Collection parents will be able to share the driving duties with an additional driver included at no extra cost when using the discount code 748082 at booking.
